A Video Tweet Concerning the Church Fires
Response to the Fires
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28, NKJV)
The word of God states that all things, even arson attempts at churches such as ours, work for a greater good. Despite the shock and sadness of being the second church in series of arson attacks targeting churches, we can see good coming in the response to this terrible attack by an outpouring of love and solidarity by even those who don’t profess a faith.
The tragic and brutal history of church burnings in the African American community and attacks on those who yearn for the freedom to exercise faith around the world calls upon all of us to soberly ponder the freedom we have and should warn us not to take it for granted.
I am thankful for every effort and expression of concern and care made those within the faith community and the public at large. Please join us in remaining prayerful that a resolution will come to this alarming series of fires targeting churches. We the New Northside Church Family has prayed for and forgiven the perpetrator but we yearn they will not only be apprehended but their heart would comprehend the Grace of God through Jesus Christ the Savior.
Stay Prayed Up
