Statement To Our Community!
by Jeffrey Haglund | October 18, 2017
“We, the Executive Committee of the North Central Florida Baptist Association, vow to lead our churches to stand together against ALL racism, hatred, bigotry, and violence. We unite together in the brotherhood of Christ for freedom and equality. God is our Father and the creator of all, regardless of one’s skin color, language, or ethnicity. We commit to work together to accomplish peace with all people and stand against the aforementioned injustices. We remain united in one voice on this matter.”
Tomorrow, hate arrives to Gainesville, Florida. People with no agenda but to pursue their interests, race, or create a great disturbance to disrupt and disunify our community are unwelcome. Let me urge you all to stay at home and do not engage or give a platform to Richard Spencer or his group. Let the peace of God that passes all understanding guard your hearts and minds. Let’s figuratively and physically cross hands in unity against hate!
