“Source of violence is sin….”
CHICAGO, IL – The churches and pastors of the Illinois Missionary Baptist State Convention are holding an ALL NIGHT Prayer Vigil Friday, February 3, 2012 from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m., Saturday, February 4, 2012 at Churches Chicken, 6600 South Halsted Street, Chicago, which is the site where two teenagers were killed.
Last December, Dantril Brown, 17, a junior at the Prosser Career Academy, and Jawan Ross, 16, a sophomore at the Robeson High School, were at Churches Chicken where an argument erupted outside with one chasing the other into the restaurant and opening fire wounding five people and killing the teens.
According to Rev. Gerald M. Dew, pastor of the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, the purpose of the prayer vigil “is to demonstrate to the community our care and concern for every resident, and to ask the Lord to move on the hearts and minds of those who use violence to solve their problems.
“We believe that the primary source of the violence in our communities is sin and sin can only be handled by The Savior. All who believe that the Lord has the power to turn our communities around are welcome to join us in this effort,” said Dew.
