Dear CMC Friends and Family,
Seems like spiritual and religious people have a lot to say these days. Last week I talked about San Francisco's ArchBishop Cordileone organizing large protests against church discrimination during pandemic restrictions. Just today I heard about the huge prayer rally named "Prayer March 2020" that took place last Sat. Sep. 26, 2020 on the National Mall in Washington DC. Estimates are that about 50,000 people took part. To be able to get crowds like this while still in a Pandemic is noteworthy. It was organized by Franklin Graham who now heads the "Billy Graham Evangelistic Association." This is Billy Graham's son.
They were praying for healing of the political divide between Democrats and Republicans. We certainly could use it. They were also praying for healing from the Covid19 pandemic. They stopped at 7 different, key points on the National Mall to say prayers. "Prayer is the medium of miracles. Prayer is the natural communication of the created with the Creator. Through prayer love is received, and through miracles love is expressed." (OrEd.Tx.1.11) See them below in front of the Lincoln Memorial. I support my traditional religious brothers, sisters, and others. While their faith is not exactly like mine, I found much to agree with in their belief in the healing power of prayer.
