Dear Fellow Community Leader,
I trust and pray your day is going well. In light of the recent murders of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and the five Dallas police officers whose names are Brent Thompson, Patrick Zamarripa, Michael Krol, Michael Smith & Lorne Ahrens. I think it is past time for the Faith Community to stand up and foster communication. People in the confines of churches are hurting, mad and frustrated.
We need to have real dialogue to address the root of the tragedies of this past week. As a community, we should be concerned when persons of color are being killed with nothing in their hands as well as when officers are gunned down in retaliation. Violence is not the answer to violence, we must be willing to dailogue and find opportunities to improve.
On Saturday, July 16th, we are organizing a town hall meeting to discuss Cobb, Cops & Community. The event will be held at “THE LIFE” Church, 1839 Powder Springs Road, Marietta, GA start time is 6:00pm. I would like to personally invite you to join the conversation and hopefully we could serve as a catalyst for change as well as serve as a model of how to address injustices in the community.
I firmly believe we are the answer to the world's problem.
Esther 4:14 Amplified Bible (AMP)
14 For if you remain silent at this time, liberation and rescue will arise for the Jews from another place, and you and your father’s house will perish [since you did not help when you had the chance]. And who knows whether you have attained royalty for such a time as this [and for this very purpose]?”
It's time now, for us to speak and more importantly ACT!
