From the Interfaith Coalition for Immigrant Rights:
Listen to the Children Pray:
Lifting Up Prayers for the Migrant Children at the Border
August 7th 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
San Francisco Federal Building (90 Seventh St.)
We hope you will join us for this special event & use this as an opportunity to engage your families and congregations! Many of us have heard the dehumanizing rhetoric being used against these children in the media and by many of our politicians.
It is time to change the narrative, lift up the humanity of migrants, and let the immigrant community know that Faith Communities stand strongly with them in calling for the protection of all migrant children.
We are inviting all faith communities to this interfaith prayer service! This will be a reverent, meditative and humble service, where we are going to dig deep into our rich faith traditions, in prayer, music and ritual for the protection of these children. There will be a special Children's Prayer Moment, so please invite children and families to come.
Come to the prayer service! Come and join us in prayer for these children. We believe prayer is a powerful tool for social change! All are welcome!
Bring your children! We are encouraging parents and grandparents to bring their children to be present in the prayer, ritual and music. There will be a time where the children will spend a moment in prayer for the migrant children. If your congregation or youth choir would like to share music or prayers in the program, please email Daniel Pinell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
