Your Church God’s Blessings

Less than six weeks after my arrival in Giddings-Lovejoy Presbytery to begin ministry as the Presbytery Leader, Michael Brown was shot and killed, unleashing reactions and responses.  As young adults reacted with protest, pastors, churches, ecumenical and interfaith organizations mobilized, and the eyes of the world focused on our city.  The ecumenical and interfaith connections forged over decades uniquely positioned St. Louis to address Brown’s tragic death.
