Religious leaders from around the nation are calling upon all Christians to allocate a minute of silence on Sunday, Feb. 22, followed by a prayer reflecting upon the memory and for the grieving families of the 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians murdered by the hands of ISIS terrorists.
A variety of denominational and cultural faith leaders have joined in the efforts, including:
- Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, President of The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC)/Conela;
- Dr. Russell Moore, President of The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC);
- Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, Award-Winning Television Producers;
- Gabe Lyons, Founder of Q Ideas;
- James Robison, Founder of LIFE Outreach International;
- Johnnie Moore, Speaker, Commentator and Author of “Defying ISIS;”
- Mathew D. Staver, Esq., Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel; Dr.—Mark Williams, General Overseer of The Church of God;
- Dr. Doug Beacham, General Superintendent of The International Pentecostal Holiness Church;
- Dr. Glenn Burris, President of The Foursquare Church; and others.
“The Christian faith is the place where conviction marries compassion and truth joins hands with love,” said NHCLC/Conela President Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, who serves as a representative voice for the more than 100 million Hispanic Evangelicals throughout the world.
“We stand convicted and convinced that terror and intolerance cannot, and will not, extinguish the light of God’s grace, truth and love,” Rodriguez continued. “We hope leaders around the world will join us in honoring those who have lost their lives, praying for those suffering, and repudiating all acts of terror.”
