A photo essay: In Texas, joining hands in unity

Christians gather in a special unity service, in light of violence and racial tension nationwide.


In light of violence and racial tensions nationwide, the Southside Church of Christ and the Richmond Avenue Church of Christ — both in Fort Worth, Texas — organized a special unity service. The recent Sunday night assembly at the Southside church building drew worshipers from 20 area congregations.

Southside minister Steve Cloer described the assembly as “as an attempt to demonstrate the power of the gospel to unite people above races and backgrounds.” The gathering, he said, made for a “very hopeful, inspiring and worshipful night.” Related articles from the September 2016 issue of The Christian Chronicle:
