The hashtag #AllLivesMatter has been controversial in recent months due to the nuances of understanding what it means and the conversation around subtle and overt racism that often exists in our nation. Local churches are coming together this Saturday to show unity. As the Apostle Paul writes in Galatians 3:23, “There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Everything that divides us in our society (race, class, social position, etc.) disappears when we know Christ and the life He brings!
In order to show the unity among churches and people in Dover, local churches are coming together this Saturday (June 6) for 12-5pm to celebrate on Legislative Mall (that giant green space downtown near Legislative Hall where people watch the fireworks, etc.). There will be a ceremony at 1:30pm to recognize the unity we have in Christ even though we may be different race, ages or worship Jesus with a different style of music or “doing church”.
I (Jeff) have been asked to pray at a point during the ceremony, so you may even see me in a tie without anyone getting married or dying–although you’re welcome to come dressed casually!
