Pre-emptive prayer strike and addressing crime

Two things...first a reminder about tomorrow's meeting with Alderman Lyle and the community, addressing the issue of crime. It will be held at St. Mark United Methodist Church (8441 S. St. Lawrence) at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, May 5.

Later on this month, I (JP Paulus) along with some others in the community, are holding a "pre-emptive prayer strike", to pray for peace, as well as listening to God for our role as peacemakers in our community.

A flyer is being produced for distribution, which should be ready on Friday.

Here's the text:
