There was an overwhelming response to the short-notice call for a prayer vigil at the dumpsters in The Pines Apartments where a woman's murdered body was found in a dumpster a week ago this morning. 150-200 people took part in the service with prayers, hymns and a procession around the apartment complex led by a half dozen pastors. It was a powerful way to stand alongside the people in the apartment complex to speak a word of hope in a time of despair, to show love in a place where hate was shown, to bring peace in a time of fear and to shine light in the darkness.
There is also a post about this event at Sunrise on the Marsh called Candles in The Pines
