Witnessing for Peace and Inclusivity

Blog|The Rev. Dr. Ellen Clark-King

Last evening I joined with clergy and laity from congregations across the city to walk and pray together as a witness to peace and inclusivity. There were Roman Catholics and indigenous people, Mennonites and Methodists, Quakers, Rabbis and Episcopalians. Together we prayed for our city and our country, for justice and reconciliation, for peaceful resistance to all forces of racism and hatred. Together we committed to not stay silent in the face of oppression and to work with one another for the better world that we all long to see.

This is where hope lies in the midst of all the battering bad news of the last few days and weeks. In groups from different communities coming together, holding one another’s hands, and letting the world know that we will not let hate triumph over love.
