Hopes and Dreams for the Community

By Dr. Sherry Jones — Last week in our praying for the intersections of several gun violence actions, we met with two community leaders. Ms. Angie and Mr. Ray both have decades of living in Kensington. They serve as block captains. They love their neighborhood and serve with great love and bravery. We talked about their hopes and dreams for the community; especially for the children. They both work tirelessly for clean streets, safe passage, violence reduction, and support of businesses. We prayed for them and the streets. We also prayed for Ms. Angie’s knees to be healed. These encounters are priceless when we can interact with the people where we are praying and they join us in those prayers.
