Shine on Justice

The City is sponsoring a commemoration of the life of George Floyd and others.  The intent is to shine a light on injustice.  Please see the description below.


In support of this citywide effort, it would be wonderful to have some people with a candle/flashlight/cellphone at church each night, along 54th Ave. S. on the sidewalk, 6 feet apart, with masks on.  The request is to take the knee, with the light/candle on at 8:00 p.m. for 8 minutes and 46 seconds.  

This is going on every night beginning today, Tuesday, June 2 through Tuesday June 9.  

Please just show up and do it.  Once or every night.  Whatever works for you.  Rev. Wells will be there most nights but cannot be there tonight – Tuesday.  If there are a lot of people, great.  Just spread out.  If there are a few, that’s great, too.  Stand near the sign.

For more information or to indicate your interest in participating, please contact Patti Cooksey at

If you cannot come to church to take part, please consider participating from your home.  

Thank you so much for being part of this expression of solidarity with the wider community.

  1. George Floyd and his journey is on my mind all the time. I will be following at home with a light.
