We join our friends at Gethsemane Lutheran Church in St. Louis by sharing the following statement:
St. Paul writes: “Pray without ceasing.” This morning, after the announcement of the Grand Jury decision not to indict, we continue to pray. We pray for an end of the violence and looting. We pray for those who have been preparing and carrying out peaceful protests. We pray for law enforcement and first responders. We pray for the grieving family of Michael Brown and all victims of gun violence, and for Officer Darren Wilson. We pray for us all on our continued journey of repentance and healing.
