NCC Governing Board Meets in New Orleans: Engages in Prayer and Action
NCC Governing Board members participated in a silent prayer walk to the New Orleans Convention Center where much suffering took place, where we engaged in prayer.
The Special Commission on the Just Rebuilding of the Gulf Coast made a great presentation about the compexities of the issues. Dr. C.T. Vivian (celebrated civil rights leader) brought several pastors with him and shared with us his program for connecting 10 churches outside New Orleans with 1 New Orleans Church. Then leaders and Organizers of PICO Louisiana (PICO is a community organizing network) shared with us the struggles on the ground. They shared with us a video of a clergy visit and community meeting.
