SEASON 4, EPISODE 20
“Should we keep sending our thoughts and prayers after tragedy strikes?”
Circle of Hope pastors discuss thoughts and prayers after tragedies. When politicians and officials offer thoughts and prayers, what happens when they don’t seemed to be backed by work oriented toward solidarity or alleviating situations that perpetuate dangerous environments?
They discuss alternate ways to the politician’s use of prayer. Among many of these, prayer can be used to continue to soften our hearts, enact a care and sympathy in us to be moved by the world’s tragedies and to take action.
