Above, about fifty people gathered for a prayer vigil in honor of Kensley Davidson on Wednesday evening, who lost his life in a shooting on the corner of Windsor and Harvard Streets in Cambridge last Thursday night after the fireworks.
Amidst fears of retaliation, Bishop Greene called together pastors and leaders in Cambridge for this prayer vigil, sending a message to those who are considering revenge that “there is another way, a different path, and a better choice; one that will nurture healing and hope, instead of sowing more seeds of tension, strife, and destruction.” Pastor Ford also delivered a powerful message on the importance of coming together, keeping the peace, and stopping the violence in order to heal the land. It was a moving time of uniting together around the only One that can truly bring the peace that this city needs.
“And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace.“ Colossians 3:15
