“The Church is the Church only when it exists for others...not dominating, but helping and serving. It must tell men of every calling what it means to live for Christ, to exist for others.”
- Dietrich Bonhoeffer
We mourn the tragic deaths of Mike Brown and Eric Garner and the subsequent injustice in the criminal case against the police officers who's actions led to their deaths. As a believers in Christ, it is our duty not to sit idle as we see this kind of injustice being done in the world. We need to show our solidarity and we need to be intentional in our prayers to God to address these tragedies. Our first step is for everyone to wear all black to church on December 14th for "National Black Solidarity Sunday." We will stand with entire AME Zion Church, along with AME, CME, Progressive Baptist, Black Presbyterian, COGIC, Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship, PAW and College of Bishop in this action. Tomorrow you will stand with millions of other Christians of many different denominational & racial backgrounds in declaring to the world that "Black Lives Matter"
