Friends, It is our Christian responsibility to keep God’s people safe. The devastating mass shooting at a Jewish synagogue in Pittsburgh this weekend is one more in a string of violent tragedies that have no place in in the kingdom of God. Come join us this Saturday to learn more about our call, as Christians, to protect our communities from violence. And pray, with our nearly quarter of a million Jewish brothers and sisters in the Baltimore/Washington metropolitan area, for Pittsburgh, for Jewish communities everywhere and for all of us, that we may turn from hatred and fear to love. #prayforpittsburgh #love #antiviolence #episcopalevangelism
View the message from our Presiding Bishop, The Most Rev. Michael Curry, on the shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue +here. And join us Saturday. If you cannot join us in person, you can view the documentary, The Armor of Light, on Netflix. Discuss it at your local congregation or in your local community group. And then pray for the victims, the injured, the families of all involved, the first responders, and the shooter, that his heart might be turned to love, of the mass shooting in the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.
Join Saturday for a Cease Fire Weekend event. We will gather at the Cathedral of the Incarnation, Baltimore at 9:00 AM. A screening of the documentary, The Armor of Light and a prayer walk are highlights of the day. A light lunch will be provided. Come learn more about our Christian responsibility to keep our children safe and to pray for those who have died.
