Standing with Las Vegas – Light a Candle Say a Prayer
Walk in anytime between 5-9 pm
Monday night, October 2nd and Tuesday night, October 3rd
Crossroads United Methodist Church
We will offer an opportunity to witness to compassion and love in light of the tragedy we are experiencing in the loss of innocent lives and those injured by the shooting in Las Vegas.
The Crossroads building will be open between the hours of 5-9 pm for people of our community and region including all faiths and traditions. You may take as much time as you like to light a candle and write or say a prayer for those suffering the loss of a family member and for those recovering from injuries.
Expressing compassion and solidarity through candle lighting and written or silent prayer is a healing gift of connection for all of us who share this loss as part of the larger human family
We will have a special table with an opportunity to write a note of gratitude to the rescue personnel who are the front line responders caring for those suffering such horrific injury and loss. We will mail these notes to the fire and rescue facilities closest to the Mandalay Resort by the end of the week.
There will be paper available to draw or write prayers or words of compassion.
People of all ages are welcome.
