Hmmm, this wouldn't be such a bad thing...

As a pastor, I'm supposed to know something about comforting people in a situation like this, but I'm not much better than anyone else.

I'm a crisis apparition:

Crisis apparitions are smart spirits that tend to appear before a critical moment. As a messenger, they like to impart important information. Just like these apparitions, something tells us that when you've heard some news, you can't help but spread the word. Some may consider this gossip, but we like to think it's knowledge production.
