Kingswood, Dunwoody UMCs Partner with Churches Across Faiths in Message of Unity

1/8/2021

Collectively saddened by the events that unfolded in our Nation’s Capitol on Wednesday, January 6, Kingswood UMC in Dunwoody and Dunwoody UMC partnered with faith leaders in their community to create a Message of Unity. The video message can be found at ​https://youtu.be/w5HqR7mDMMU

​“The sadness I felt on Wednesday was equal to sadness I experienced as a boy when President Kennedy, his brother Robert, and Martin Luther King, Jr. were assassinated. It is the same depth of sadness as 9-11,” said Rev. Charles E. Broome, Senior Pastor at Kingswood. “It was profoundly impacting, because it comes on the heels of all the events from this past summer. Wednesday felt like the foundations of the United States of America were crumbling. I am sad. I am disappointed. I am angry.” Broome continued, “We need to search ourselves and strive to be a light which no one can miss, that positively influences everyone and all things that cross our paths.”

The video features clergy from Dunwoody Baptist Church, Dunwoody United Methodist Church, Kingswood United Methodist Church, Saint Luke’s Presbyterian Church Dunwoody, and Temple Sinai in Sandy Springs.
