To Our Sisters and Brothers at Moses Montefiore Congregation – Bloomington, IL,
We are saddened and outraged to hear about the killing of eleven worshipers at the Tree of Life Congregation in Pittsburgh. We want you to know that we stand with you. We join you in praying for the grieving families, for those who were injured, and for all who have been terrorized. We commit to work against anti-Semitism. When hate targets any of us, we are all under attack. We recommit ourselves to pray and work for a world where no one is gunned down, and where we can all live together in peace.
The People of First United Methodist Church of Normal, IL & Wesley United Methodist Church of Bloomington, IL
