CEN Founder and President, Mary Marr who lived through the Detroit riots of 1967 said: “Everyone - Christian or non-Christian should be able to agree upon this one thing: ALL life matters, and everyone deserves to be treated with kindness, respect and honesty. Beyond the destruction and grief stricken wailing, Christians need to hear and answer the pleas of seekers asking: Where is God in this crisis? as a ReadyChristian”
“We see black lines being spray painted on buildings to identify violent protestors should view them as targets for violent destruction. CEN is asking our law enforcement partners, with this lawlessness are neighborhoods and churches next? It is not only urban areas which are affected, but rural areas as well. You need to prepare your ReadyChurch right now for civil unrest” says Darryl Walker, CEN National Safety Security Officer and former pastor.
CEN ReadyIndy leader says: “As a Christian city leader, with the peace and Hope of Christ have you built relationships with other churches, ministries, and across the political, cultural and racial and law enforcement divides? Do you know what your community needs are? Do you have a ReadyCity that will “Be There” praying, caring and sharing the love of Christ long after the heightened rhetoric and loud voices are silenced?”
“When we single out one group over another, subordinating one over the other it is a contemporary form of supremacy which has been fostered for centuries. The mentality of the “survival of the fittest” - white, black, blue or any other color is an attitude of supremacy which should be offensive to everyone. It is a God-given right to be treated not only equally, but respectfully. As Christians, responsible for law enforcement we know, violations of basic rights are breaches of security and trust are willful amoral problems which only Christ can transform.” says ReadyFL Safety Security Officer, Kurt Jordan
