praying to free Eric Volz

Filed under: Christianity, soapbox — noisedoctor @ 7:15 am

I got this e-mail about Eric Volz. I hope you’ll join me in praying for this situation.


What you can do now…

For the past almost eight months as people have heard
the story of Eric
Volz's arrest and unjust imprisonment, after the look
of disbelief, there
comes a question, "what can we do?"

We struggle to believe, still, that this situation is
as dire as it appears,
that the chance for Eric to be freed hangs by such
thin threads. After all, we understand justice to mean
that if mistakes are made they will be made right. We
wait together for this to become true.

There have been and are still available opportunities
to communicate with Eric and to contribute to the
costs of his defense. (go to www.freeericvolz.com)

But now as we wait, we have another timely and
important answer to the question, "what can we do?"

Between the dates of July 21st and 29th (the week that
marks the beginning of the 9th month since Eric's
arrest) the friends of Eric Volz are calling for all
concerned persons and groups to gather together in
whatever way you practice prayer.

We will join together during this week to garner the
powers of grace, mercy, forgiveness, justice and love.
We believe these powers to be stronger than any of the
systemic brokenness and evil that keeps innocent
persons imprisoned. This is a time for faithful
persons to lean toward the changing of processes and
persons who have the power to decide to protect Eric's
safety and to set him free.

If you are reading this and as a group or individual
wish to add your energy to hoping with many others
please let us know that you'll be setting aside time
as an individual or with a group for a hour, a day, or
spread out across this week of response.

Please email the name, email and physical address of
the person who will coordinate the effort for your
group to: skeenj@mail.belmont.edu. As is possible we
will provide materials electronically that can be
reproduced as you choose for use with your group. We
will also mail additional support materials to share
with those who participate. (Please include an
estimate of how many are needed in your response)

Thank you for your ongoing concern for Eric and his
