I would like to invite you to participate in the 2013 March of Remembrance Houston.  As Honorary Chair of the event, I feel it is important in this specific point in time in our nation’s history that we as the church come together to speak out against the rise of anti-semitism and death spirit that is surging, not only in the U.S., but the world over.

Psalm 89:14 reminds us that Equity (Righteousness) and Justice arethe foundation of God’s throne, and that loyal love and faithfulness characterize His rule (NET  version.)  May we show our loyal love and faithfulness to our Jewish brothers and friends by showing our support and commitment to never forgetting.

Marches will be held in seven locations across the Houston area:  six on Saturday and one on Sunday at The Church at Bethel’s Family in the Braeswood area.

I hope you will join us.  Information can be found online at www.marchofremembrancehouston.org.  Details for the locations are below.
