Since the Charleston shootings at least eight southern churches with mostly African-American congregations have burned – a wave of anti-black terrorism that’s been met with a confounding silence from mainstream media. But several Muslim groups, citing “our intertwined histories and convergent present”, have noticed and acted. Arguing that “all houses of worship are sanctuaries” they have been fundraising to rebuild churches and “help our sisters and brothers in faith”.
I’d like to share with you this inspiring story about forgiveness, blessed rebuilding, and solidarity.
Peace, Pastor Laurie
