We welcomed the public and members of diverse religious and cultural communities to our grounds to pray for immigrant and suffering families Sat. July 14.
Rabbi Linda Bertenthal from Temple Emanuel, Davenport, IA prayed a Shabbat children’s blessing.
Rev. Jerome Green from Anchored in the Lord Ministries, Rock Island, IL prayed “We Live Above Nature” by Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Dr. Lisa Killinger, Muslim Community of the Quad Cities, prayed a Sufi prayer for peace.
Olivia Best, Alleman High School 2018 graduate, shared a story of an immigrant child’s horrific experience.
We also read a lovely Native American prayer submitted by Josie Ironshield, Sage Sisters of the Quad Cities.
The bells rang, the sun shone, and – during the Native American prayer – the Lord spoke volumes in thunder.
The rains were holy waters of God’s love at the end. If you have a Facebook account, Watch now!
