“We claim faith in a God who became incarnate and lived among us, who shared intimately in our suffering and grief. We believe in a God who brings resurrecting power to the most desperate places. Let us witness to that faith now. Let us bring that same manner of profound presence and transforming love to this moment in time. Pray for the families and friends of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, for communities filled with anger and despair, for the families of police officers killed and injured in Dallas last night, and for law enforcement here and everywhere.”
We witness with our presence, our care, and our concern. Please take the time to read this pastoral letter from Shari Prestemon.
