Children of Abraham + A Call to Prayer, Awareness & Action

Children of Abraham + A Call to Prayer, Awareness & Action

On Sunday, May 19, 2019, at 3:00 P.M., at the Peg Bond Pavilion near Batavia’s City Hall, members of the Batavia Christian and Islamic communities, together with other Abrahamic faith groups and people of good will, shall gather for a time of prayer, silence, presentations on recent events, and suggestions for action in response to the recent violent acts carried out against Christians and Muslims and Jews in Poway, California; Western Europe; the Holy Land; India; Indonesia; New Zealand, Nigeria, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Sri Lanka, to name but a few of the more recent occurrences.  We come together, because the fear and mistrust, the historical misunderstandings and prejudices must be addressed at the local level before there can be real hope of any movement or change at higher levels.  We hope to be the “pebble tossed in the pond” that causes the radiating of ripples outward to move others to prayer, awareness and action, in God’s Name.

This gathering will last an hour, after which there will be a time to meet and greet others. Please invite the members of your faith community to attend.  No offering will be received.  This is an event organized by the Batavia Ministerial Association, which includes the Batavia Islamic Center as a constituent member.

For more information, email: Michael.rasicci@sbcglobal.net /call 630-879-3378, ext. 302; Hamid and Mazher Ahmed – email: hmahmed@hotmail.com /call 630-715-1071; Jonathan Hudson - email: jaylouhud@outlook.com>

Amistad Movie

Sunday, March 24, during 9:30 Worship Service - Join us as we honor La Amistad and our United Church of Christ during Worship!

There will be a showing of the movie Amistad on Wednesday, March 20, at 6:15 p.m. You are welcome to come to toGather supper at 5:30 p.m. before the movie – please RSVP to Laura Bernabei by Tuesday, March 23. Also, you may watch the movie on your own or borrow the DVD from Pastor Jane. 

The Amistad was and is many things:

• It was a Cuban coasting schooner,

• It was a famous court case,

• It was an historic event that shaped the nation and the United Church of Christ   

 • It is a contemporary floating museum,

• It is a special Sunday in the United Church of Christ (UCC)

• It is an inspiration.

Amistad Sunday honors, emphasizes, and underscores the historic commitment of the UCC to the work of justice and compassion! Beginning in 1839, the work of “black and white” Congregationalists helped to secure the release of 53 captive Africans who struggled courageously for their freedom aboard La Amistad.                                                                       

The fruits of their labors not only inspired Christian witness for justice in the mid-1800s, but also helped build a lasting movement for racial, economic, and social justice in the UCC!
