Share your stories and ideas with the network as you respond to crisis and disaster.

This Sunday, in honor of the victims that were killed last week at the Sikh temple, we are asking for you to join the Faith Community in a moment of silence to honor their memory.

Often times, people will wonder what they can do to help in times like this. As a Christian, we have the responsibility to provide a biblical response through prayer, caring for victims, and sharing the hope that we have in Christ.

The Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund released a statement on August 9th asking for the Faith Community to stand with them in solidarity as they honor the victims. They “hope that this National Moment of Reflection at churches, mosques, synagogues, temples, gurdwaras, and community centers across America will send the message of blessings for all, and that we stand united against hate and intolerance and as part of a common humanity.”

As Christians, we are called to love our neighbors. This is never truer than in their time of need. I read a quote today that said, “out of 100 people, 1 will read the full Bible. The other 99 will read the Christian.” We encourage you to stand with CEN, the Christian Community and the broader Faith Community in showing love to our fellow Americans who were impacted by an active shooter during their service last week, trying to love like Christ does!
