Can I ask for prayers for Lexington, VA?

Blog Post created by elvan on Jun 30, 2018

Some of you may have seen the news that a local restaurant owner refused to serve the White House Press Secretary a week ago on Friday.  Our town has been in chaos since then...there is a large motorcycle protest expected this afternoon and evening.  No matter what side of the issue you may be on, PLEASE pray that there is no violence.  I work in my son and daughter in law's cafe and they have received a number of death threats in the past few days.  They have had to turn off their business phone and disable their Facebook and Instagram accounts...they are a young couple trying very hard to make their business work...they have an "Everyone Eats" program so they feed people who cannot afford a meal...no one wants violence to result from this, it is a very polarizing issue and I understand that but I also understand that this small community is trying its best to weather the storm.  It is unfairly affecting all of the local businesses and the usual celebratory 4th of July event.

 

Say a prayer for PEACE, please.

Thank you,

Ellen
