Church Of God In Christ
Statement on Ferguson Police Shooting
We were saddened to hear of the shooting of two police officers in Ferguson, Missouri. All around the world, we are praying for their full recovery. We are also praying for their families and their colleagues.
Law enforcement is absolutely necessary to preserve the peace throughout our nation. As an organization, we strongly support the many men and women of high integrity who valiantly place their lives on the line each day in an effort to secure the public safety.
As events unfold in Ferguson, we continue to pray for the peace of that city. Our fervent hope is that ultimately a strong and compassionate community will arise.
