What the Bible Has to Say About Murmuring Protests

from Bruce Koch, family ministries coordinator

When I was a child, I have fond memories of May Day in Pennsylvania. We created flower-filled May baskets and had a special musical program at school. Several children would weave together ribbons around the May Pole.

Our association with the first of May is a little different today. We often see labor riots, protests, worker uprisings, and civil disobedience.

But this is nothing new. These type of uprising events existed throughout history. You won't find protests mentioned much in the Bible, but you will find more instances of murmuring. It all started with the first murmuring of the angels in heaven and progressed through the ages to include the children of Israel and the protesting crowds at Jesus' crucifixion.

Let's take a brief look at what scripture has to say about restoration and justice. Keep reading!

Local Entrepreneur Finds Way to Give Back to God and Community

Eunice Reyes, a local entrepreneur and member of Volunteer Park Church in Seattle, Wash., knew from an early age that she wanted to one day be a part of the fashion industry. In 2015, Reyes and her cousin, Melissa Reyes, co-founded Le Foodie/The Food Tee, a fashion T-shirt line that allowed the two cousins to share their love of food and fashion. And then God impressed her with a way to give back to a special cause!

Praying Together on National Day of Prayer

Prayer brings people together. Prayer builds bridges between opposing persons and even political parties. Prayer reminds us that we are created in God's image and He desires for us to represent Him everywhere we go. Prayer brings UNITY. In 2018, the National Day of Prayer theme is Pray for America - UNITY, based upon Ephesians 4:3 which challenges us to mobilize unified public prayer for America, "Making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace."

Take a moment today to join in praying for our nation.
