Citizens of the Kingdom of God, Part III

We began our worship this morning standing before God with the people of Emmanuel Church ‪#‎Charleston‬ on our hearts.

Prayer and bell tolls for our brothers and sisters risen to new life:

Cynthia Hurd,
Susie Jackson,
Ethel Lance,
Clementa Pinckney,
Sharonda Coleman-Singleton,
Tywanza Sanders,
DePayne Middleton-Doctor,
Myra Thompson,
Daniel Simmons.

Prayers for all who loved them and grieve. And, hard as it was, we prayed for the person who shot them.

Prayer for all who gathered at Emmanuel Church, in the same hour we gathered today, as they reconsecrated the building with their worship and forgiveness.

God is love.
