Pastors & Police Announce Prayer Vigil in Selma
From the West Alabama Newsroom–
Pastors and police in Selma — announce a prayer vigil — amid nationwide protests and riots following the death of George Floyd in Minnesota.
“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.
