Praying about violence

In response to the recent spike in violence here in our home city, our church community has been praying for an increased sense of peace and worth.  Two members have had their prayer-filled perspectives published in The Christian Science Monitor.  Here are links to their articles:

Toward stopping violence in Chicago – why there is hope

How I love Chicago

In addition to these two articles, here are links to the readings from two Wednesday Testimony Meetings we recently held on this subject:

August 1, 2012 – What is possible and what is impossible?

July 25, 2012 – Is man both good and evil?

And lastly, as one additional resource to inform your prayers – here’s a link to an insightful news article, “In Chicago, heat and homicide stoke fear and frustration,” The Christian Science Monitor.
