Grace and peace to the Eastern Pennsylvania and Peninsula-Delaware Conferences.
I have just heard about the “not guilty” verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. He was the Florida man on trial for the death of Trayvon Martin, a 17-year old African American youth who was shot last February. I ask that we pray for all of the people involved at this time. This has surely been a deeply disturbing verdict for many and others are in agreement with the verdict When the community is strongly divided there is cause for deep concern and serious prayer. When a young person is dies and there is violence in our land we are all hurt. Please lift this matter up in prayer and have times of conversation and discernment about steps forward toward how we can heal as a nation.
