Grace to you and peace.
Many of us have watched in horror today as protesters stormed the US Capitol while the US Congress attempted to carry out their constitutional responsibility to accept the electoral college results and declare Joe Biden as president of the United States. It certainly feels like we are in the middle of a war to retain our principles of democracy. Although there is much work to do, now is the time for prayer.
You are invited and encouraged to join others around the UCC for a prayer vigil this evening (Wednesday, January 6, 2021) at 7:30 pm Eastern. Please read the prayer from Rev. Dr. John Dorhauer, General Minister of the UCC, and then register for this evening’s prayer vigil.
