Shed The Light, Oct 30
October is Domestic Violence Action Month! There are a variety of ways to put your faith into action to change our community’s response to domestic violence, such as speaking about domestic violence in a faith service, join Abused Women’s Aid In Crisis (AWAIC) for Shed the Light 2017, a unifying action event for faith communities to raise awareness about domestic violence. The event will be a gathering and march, starting and ending at First United Methodist Church (725 W. 9th Avenue) on Monday, October 30th from noon to 1 p..m. The gathering will start with a prayer and welcome. Then, the march itself will be a mile long loop through downtown. Dress warmly and please feel free to bring poster-sized signs from your faith community, but not banners, as we will be walking on sidewalks for the march and cannot block the entire sidewalk. Finally, the gathering will end with coffee, candle-lighting, and a closing prayer.
