Church Leaders to Gather at the Capitol for Weekly Prayer in Action

The Kentucky Council of Churches is hosting Prayer in Action Days at the State Capitol each Tuesday during this year’s General Assembly to pray for government officials and act on behalf of Kentucky’s most vulnerable citizens. Gatherings will begin at 9:30 am. at the Capital Annex. The room number for each week is listed below.

Feb. 28                   Death Penalty - Room 171

Mar. 7                    Environment/Energy - Room 113

Mar. 14                Immigrants/Refugees - Room 111

Prayer in Action Days are inspired by Moral Mondays in North Carolina, where religious leaders created significant change in policies that oppressed the poor and people of color. In 2016, the Council of Churches partnered with Repairers of the Breach, a national organization led by Moral Monday leader Rev. Dr. William Barber. “We held three excellent and well-attended events, including the Day of Action rally and the Moral Revival service,” said Rev. Dr. Peggy Hinds. Executive Director of the Council. “These events inspired more progressive faith leaders to speak out against racism, xenophobia, and unjust social policies. We want to continue that momentum in 2017.”

The Kentucky Council of Churches chose these issues based on policy statements approved by all eleven of the Council’s denominational members. The membership includes Protestant and Roman Catholic congregations. The Council works with other state advocacy groups and coalitions on issues, and many of them have committed to support the Prayer in Action Days.

All Prayer in Action events are interfaith and open to the public and media. For more information contact the Kentucky Council of Churches at (859) 269-7715.
