Second Baptist Church, 1717 Benson Ave., will hold a vigil at 7 p.m. on June 15 in remembrance of the Orlando tragedy’s victims, their families and friends. Muslim, Christian and Jewish leaders, as will representatives of the LGBTQ and Hispanic communities. All are welcome. This killing spree occurred just five days short of the anniversary of the shooting at Mother Emmanuel Church in Charleston, S.C.
Reverend Michael Nabors, pastor at Second Baptist, said, “Hatred is spreading and it is being glorified. … Our community and nation must see the religious community respond in love and support.” All are welcome.
