As a church, we continue to grieve the racist and misogynist violence against Asian and Asian American people. We cry out to God for justice on behalf of those who were murdered in Georgia last week. And we commit to speaking clearly and consistently about any violence against our Asian and Asian American family and neighbors.

I urge you to attend one or both of the vigils below. It's critical that Christians are visible and responsive in this moment. To meet-up with other New Com people at either vigil, please email Amy and she'll connect with others.

- Pastor David

PS Please listen to our own Esther Yoon-Ji Kang reporting on NPR's All Things Considered about the increased attacks against Asian and Asian American people in this country.

FRIDAY

This vigil is sponsored by four organizations that are led by and center Asian American women.  As we seek to mourn with those who mourn, it is important to recognize both the racial and gendered nature of the violence and follow the lead of those who were impacted mostly closely by the tragedy. A huge thanks to Valeri Chow Tao who has been working so hard to help make this vigil happen.

SUNDAY

Hosted by the Asian American Christian Collaborative: "We want to show our nation and world that Asian American Christians will not remain silent in the face of injustice and that we will actively oppose the powers and principalities that could lead to such a heinous act of hate. We will turn to God in prayer for our nation and for the families of those we lost, and we will call the Church to join us and stand for AAPI lives and dignity."
