MEDIA ADVISORY, Feb. 16, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ -- In response to the protests, riots and racial tension created over the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson and Eric Garner in Staten Island, Bishop E.W. Jackson has called for a National Service of Reconciliation, Healing and Awakening. Pastors from around the country will lead the service, including representatives from Ferguson and New York. There will also be representation from law enforcement.
This service builds on the Bridges to Peace meeting of prominent Pastors and leaders in the Christian community hosted by Bishops Harry Jackson and T.D. Jakes in Dallas, Texas and a series of meetings in Ferguson led by Tony Evans. It will be held in the Congressional Auditorium in the Capitol Visitors Center on Wednesday, February 25 from 7 to 9 PM.
Says Bishop E.W. Jackson, "This is going to be an historic meeting. We are holding it in the nation's capital because it is time for Pastors from every race and background to come together and speak to the nation on the issue of racial division and show the way forward. Without God, we can never get beyond the past, and our future will be infected with bitterness. Pastors and churches must lead the way."
This service will be a model for other communities around the country to replicate as a first step toward bringing people together across racial and cultural lines. "This National Service is a kick-off to services around the country," said Bishop E.W. Jackson. "Other local services are in the works."
