Call to prayer and fasting in support of just immigration reform
Bishop Gwinn, Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño (Desert Southwest Conference), and the Council of Bishops ask all United Methodists to join them as a committed people in the fight for comprehensive, just, and Christ-centered immigration reform. In such manner, all United Methodists are invited to participate in the Isaiah 58 National Solidarity Vigil and Fast for Arizona that will begin on June 6 and continue with constant prayer and public witness through July 28, the date on which implementation of Arizona law, SB1070 will begin.
During these eight weeks, vigil participation will roll from one region to another, with faith communities in groups of states leading activities for one week at a time. Each week, the vigil will engage individuals in the assigned states in constant prayer, and will include at least one public prayer event. Vigil participants will take their prayers for justice to the streets, standing as witnesses outside their statehouse, detention center, school, and other places where the brokenness of our immigration system is most apparent. For more information, please see: National Solidarity Vigil and Fast.
