For those interested in joining a cadre of friends we are having a Socially Distanced Stand and Walk this Saturday at Christ the King Church.
Participants may choose to Stand with Ahmaud around the church building on Rice Blvd. and Greenbriar and will have signs to hold and to pin to shirts. Those that want to Walk with Ahmaud may walk the blocks surrounding the church (Rice to Greenbriar to Morningside back to the church). There will also be an opportunity for a photo op to display on social media for those who just want to drop by or prefer to support from their cars in the church parking lot. Masks are required for all participants outside their cars. Please bring your own liquids, hand sanitizers, and safety pins to pin on your signs.
Please RSVP so we will know how many signs to make.
Amid the flood of news of Covid-19 from all extremes, we almost missed it. On February 23, 2020 a young man, Ahmaud Arbery, was murdered by two men as he jogged through his mother’s neighborhood in a small town in Georgia. On Mother’s Day weekend thoughts of his mother still suffering from the taking of her son haunted many in the country. As a healing community we are called upon to respond to injustices everywhere even while under the oppressive blanket of Covid-19.
