This has been a difficult week
Deaths, shootings, craziness is filling the airwaves and the social media feeds. As a follower of Jesus and as a leader of a church I have felt like I need to do something. We need to pray and we need to act – but as a white male, I need to be sensitive and listen first, because I don’t understand the issue in the same ways as my brothers and sisters of color.
I have a dear friend who is an African American pastor. His church is hosting a potluck Sunday night and The Table will join them there. Below is the information and a link to the event on Facebook. Please consider attending. I am encouraging us to participate in this event because of my relationship with Pastor Paul, but if there is someone that you are connected to or a place in your own neighborhood where people are gathering together to listen, to pray, and to act like Jesus–go and do that!
Now is not a time for Jesus-followers to be quiet or invisible.
Please stand up against violence, injustice, and racism. Please pray for our communities – both people of color and for our law enforcement officers and elected officials.
Now is the time for us to be the Church!
We need to come together…to hear, help and heal. Join Grace Outreach Church for a time of facilitated conversation, reflection and prayer
