“While all of us gathered here and in fact spread across the face of this Earth share a common humanity, there remains among us and within us, a lingering unwillingness to accept one another as equals. We have a name for it. We call it racism. It is simply, sin,” said Rev. Steve Burton.

The event is also intended to promote and develop trust between police — and the black community.

The prayer vigil is set for 3 o’clock Sunday afternoon at Bloch Park.
