A pastor from Ferguson asked a black congregation if they would pray for Darren Wilson. There was no response. He than asked if they would pray for his family. Only one person said they would.

These events have the potential to release pent-up anger, and even violence. How we choose to respond to these events, reveal very quickly what kind of Christians we really are.
