7/8 Letter Regarding Dallas Events

Dear members and friends of FPC,

It is with deep grief and sadness that your Session writes to you in the wake of the tragedy last night in Dallas. This is a time for Christians of all races to go to our knees together and pray: pray for the families of the Dallas police officers who were killed in the ambush…for the leaders and police force of the City of Dallas, and for its citizens…for the perpetrators, that they would be brought to justice…for ourselves, that we would be irenic and winsome witnesses – amidst the anger – for the One who is the Prince of Peace and Lord of all…for our own Susan Pamerleau as she leads the Bexar County Sheriff’s Department…and for the peace of our nation.

First Presbyterian Church will continue to do her best to extend the Gospel of Jesus Christ – the Gospel that is the only true antidote to racism and violence and injustice – across San Antonio, and around the word. We ask you to stand with us, your Session, in solidarity against everything in our current society that is antithetical to this Gospel, and for the healing of our nation at this crucial moment in her history. The place to start is on our knees, examining our own hearts, repenting of anything in us that would contribute to what is ripping our nation apart, and asking for the Lord’s forgiveness, mercy, and redemption to play out amidst the horrific tragedy that has occurred. This is a time for tears…and to resolve to be Christ’s men and women, boys and girls, who lovingly and courageously live to make Jesus visible when the night is darkest.

We’ll be praying with you in the days ahead…especially at 9:30, 11, and 11:02 this Sunday morning. There is also a Prayer Meeting at 8:30 a.m. in the Bride’s Room this Sunday -and every Sunday – where you can pray alongside your brothers and sisters in Christ.

Stay strong in the Lord,

+ Tripp Stuart, Clerk of Session                               + Ron Scates, Interim Sr. Pastor
