A message from Pastor Reggie:
Sunday, on our King’s Park Facebook & YouTube live-stream and chats, there were a tremendous amount of emotions expressed through comments. The comments were related to the social unrest, protesting, rioting, and looting due to the bigotry, racism, and injustices displayed in our country. The most recent situations resulted from the untimely death of George Floyd.
I share many of those emotions and am grieved, angry, and frustrated with the sins of racism and division in our society. I am also troubled by the blanket accusations of racism made by some as though all police officers are racist.
We are going to take action as a King’s Park Family. We need to address these issues by praying and fasting. The combination of prayer and fasting is the primary biblical response to crises related to sin (Joel 2:12-13).
Fasting is about mourning our present conditions and seeking for heaven to respond. I sense as we sacrifice and gather (with social distancing in mind) to pray against racism and division and for justice, reconciliation, and peace, God will intervene in some way. I believe that something powerful can happen when we come together, and we appeal to the higher court of Heaven through Jesus Christ to make things right and bring His Kingdom filled with truth, love, and affirmation.
Our leadership team will fast on Tuesday from 8 pm to Wednesday at 8 pm and gather for a time of prayer Wednesday evening. We invite anyone from our congregation who would like to join us by fasting and praying with us. We will gather in the East parking lot outside of the Fellowship Hall Wednesday at 6:30 PM. Hopefully, you can join us to address the unrest.
