Giving all

In memory of husband and wife team, Pastors Carillo, who were murdered last Saturday in El Salvador and are remembered in a Memorial Service in Milwaukee tonight.

For all who suffered on this night years ago in the events of Kristallnacht and throughout the Shoah, remembered and mourned in chapel today at LSTC.

For all who suffer and die because of faith and that our grief, fear and anger may be transformed to deeper commitment in the struggle for justice and peace. That we may continue to raise up leaders who are and will be part of the transforming reign of God - leading us into a new way of living with one another.

The LORD sets the prisoners free, the LORD opens the eyes of the blind. The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down. The LORD watches over strangers, upholds the orphan and widow.

We remember, we believe.

Pastor Joy
