Unaccompanied Children on the Border
A Plea for Local Action
The United Methodist Church proposed an interfaith weekend of prayer July 18-20 for the children and teenagers who have come across the border seeking asylum from violence at home.
Will you invite your church, mosque or synagogue to share in prayer for a just solution to this problem, one that protects these youngsters from violence and exploitation?
Here in Gainesville we can target next weekend July 25-27 giving us more time to reach out to local faith communities.
We can do it, but only with your help.
This weekend a large number of local protests are being held by anti-immigrant groups. None of them north of Orlando.
Let's combine an interfaith weekend of prayer next weekend (July 25-27) with a public service in behalf of these children. Sunday afternoon July 27?
