On October 28, 2008 at our annual public meeting we promised to remember you in our prayers. Individually as well as collectively our congregations have been praying for each family’s spiritual health, physical health and most certainly that God keep your mind in perfect peace.
One of Racine Interfaith Coalition’s deepest values is building a community of hope. Our goal is to bring compassion and justice to the City of Racine. Subsequently, Racine Interfaith Coalition has been blessed with helpers. Those helpers are called sustaining members and friends.
Consider RIC your sustaining friends. No better time than Christmas to remind you that many people are praying for you. That there is some good in Racine. As promised, we remember your loss, we remember your pain, and are aware of the changes that you and your family have had to endure especially at this time of the year.
As you and your family celebrate this Christmas our prayer is that with the coming New Year you receive the available gift of complete restoration, that your wounded hearts are healed, that your anxiousness be replaced with perfect peace and that your tears and bad memories be replaced with smiles and happy memories. That the tragedy you have experienced be transformed into thanksgiving for God kindly placing your loved one in your lives for His chosen period of time.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
