A Time for Change

I just received this message from office of Social Justice of the Christian Reformed Church. For anyone concerned with the lives of immigrants here in the United States, Now is the time to raise your voice:

From February 13-22, prayer vigils for Immigration Reform will be held across the United States. We invite you to share in this opportunity to lift in prayer both immigrants in your area as well as the need for reform to our broken system.

We realize this is coming up soon, so we've written a ready-made litany for you, available for download at We hope this makes it easy for you to simply and quickly plan a vigil in your area. We also encourage you to invite your elected officials (since this is during a congressional recess) and the media to attend the event, too.

If you have questions or need more information, feel free to contact Kate, If you plan to hold a vigil, we encourage you to let us know and to register it at There you'll find other resources that may be helpful as you get your event off the ground.
