Make a difference in Washington

  • January 20, 2014

I recently attended a community worship service held in the Washington High School Auditorium. This service of Christian unity was the vision of the Washington Ministerium, which consists of 25 churches and ministries in the Washington area.

The purpose of the service was to build unity among the people of Washington with the hope of reclaiming the city. As we sang uplifting songs, I looked around the auditorium and saw over 300 people, with no age discrimination, racial barriers or class distinctions. We came together as one in songs and scripture, but, most of all, in prayer.

The presence of God could be felt in that place. We need to watch for and expect a change coming to the city. But it all starts with each of us. We, with God’s help, are the hope for the city of Washington. Needless to say, I left that service with a different outlook on Washington, ready and willing to make a difference any way I can. I challenge all who read this to do the same.
