Prayer Service at Gethsemane Church
Gethsemane Church will be open today, April 16, from 5 - 7pm for silent prayer, for those who would like to be in solidarity with the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. All are welcome

We need to stand with those who have suffered violence in our land yet one more time. Come.  Be in silence.  Pray if you wish.  In your heart be a sign that love, peace and justice are stronger than death.

Pray for peace, for those who suffer and for those who use violence to find their meaning and security.  Be in solidarity with those throughout the world who experience violence as a daily event.

Peace and hope to us all. Dick Bower, Pastor Gethsemane Church
