As Seventh-day Adventist followers of Jesus in the Oregon Conference we share deep concern about what we witnessed today in the United States of America with a crowd violently breaching the US capitol. The Church, as with our Lord Jesus, is not politically partisan. We reject violence and harm of persons and property as the solution to society’s needs.
This is a sobering time for our nation and for God’s Church. It is a time to remember that our single focus is knowing, loving, serving and sharing Jesus. This is not only the purpose of the Church, but the greatest need of our world. It is a time for sincere prayer for healing in our nation and in the Church.
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14, KJV.
