We are shocked and saddened by the breakdown of our civil society and the attack on our democracy as evidenced by the violent assault on our nation’s Capitol on January 6, 2021. In these troubled days for our Republic, Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston (Interfaith Ministries) calls upon all people of faith, or no particular faith, to pray, reflect and aspire to the highest of our shared hopes, beliefs and values.

The attack on the U.S. Capitol, that struck at the heart of our representative government, has shaken our already divided country. There is much work to be done to heal our nation and it often seems like the work is overwhelming, or our efforts futile, but we must not give in to despair or complacency. We must continue in our work of building respect for each other, listening to one another and loving our neighbor. Let us, together, face with conviction, truth, and compassion, the challenges that are before us. Interfaith Ministries will continue to work with all people of goodwill to further our mission of dialogue, collaboration, and service.
