Interfaith Initiative to Hold Our City in Prayer, Presence, and Love
In the midst of our communal brokenness and with our diverse experiences and perspectives we invite you to hold our city in prayer, presence and love. The Louisville Prays initiative is co-sponsored by Interfaith Paths to Peace and Center for Interfaith Relations.
Candles are a guiding symbol for all of the Louisville Prays events. The flame represents our common humanity and the different candles our unique expressions of its light.
"Louisville Prays" yard signs are available for free. If you would like a yard sign, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Through the election season, we are asking all Louisvillians at 8:00 PM to light a candle and stand outside, at a street corner in their neighborhood, or place a flameless candle in a window as a sign of offering love and healing presence to our city.
