2nd Annual PRAYER 4 PEACE MARCH
2nd Annual Prayer 4 Peace March is all about Community Reconciliation in Homewood and throughout Pittsburgh. Our immediate and long term goals are “Hope Now and for the Future”. This march will be different than any other Pittsburgh has ever experienced. Our Prayer 4 Peace March will not be one of screaming out, hoopin’ or hollerin’ but an intentional community prayer in SILENCE led by the young people of Homewood on one of the most holy days on the global Christian calendar This will create a unique manifestation of God’s presence knowing that individual prayer is powerful but in a group setting we can move mountains.
With the support of the Pittsburgh Presbytery and its churches, partnerships with churches in and around the Homewood Community from all denominations along with everyday people from all walks of life and inviting other communities to march with us so that the heartwomb of love and healing can begin to saturate from one community to another in America’s most livable city. So next year we can have a city wide community Prayer 4 Peace March for Reconciliation throughout Pittsburgh.
Among those scheduled to participate Mayor Luke Ravenstahl, Rev. Dr. Sheldon W. Sorge, Rev. Ricky Burgess, Tim Stevens, Esther Bush, T. Rashad Byrdsong, Minister Jasiri X, OBB, PIIN, various synagogues, County Executive Dan Onarato, State Rep Joe Preston, Senate Jim Ferlo, Pittsburgh Chief of Police Nate Harper and many more.
We ask that all community activists, politicians and concerned citizens meet up in front of Westinghouse High School located; 101 North Murtland Street on Good Friday, April 22, 2011 at 9:30am. There we will have an organized gathering and prayer for all participants before the march begins.
