Families Belong Together

July 6, 2018

Our Disciples RIM Director helped lead prayers at the Sojourners’ Keep Families Together prayer vigil at the U.S. Capitol on June 30, saying, “God, in a season that should be filled with summer camps, not detention camps, when travel and tent camping should not be in a tent city or on a mass military base, let us remember that all children are God’s children. In these months of travel when new places should not be seen from the window of a detention center bus, when our very nation is complicit in planning for the chaos and the pain of immigrant families while falsely proclaiming that it will somehow better protect both us and them, let us say loudly, all children are God’s children. Lord you set us apart, but you did not intend for any to be torn apart. Jesus said, all children are God’s children.” Go here to hear Dr. Stanley-Rea’s full prayer.
