We gather in support of this cause knowing that we are called to be a public witness in the world. We will have a number of events this year to equip each other for these difficult but necessary conversations. All who participate in the Warrior Run are invited to a dinner & time of conversation at Pastor Lorne and Becca’s home in Mariemont on Wednesday, September 27 before the race. All are also welcome to a workshop put on by Cincinnati Children’s Hospital called, Surviving the Teens on Wednesday, October 11 at 7:00pm called “Surviving the Teens”. We are in this together! From the ELCA’s message on Suicide Prevention:
Suicide testifies to life’s tragic brokenness. We believe that life is God’s good and precious gift to us, and yet life for us—ourselves and others— sometimes appears to be hell, a torment without hope. When we would prefer to ignore, reject, or shy away from those who despair of life, we need to recall what we have heard: God’s boundless love in Jesus Christ will leave no one alone and abandoned. We who lean on God’s love to live are called to “bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2). Our efforts to prevent suicide grow out of our obligation to protect and promote life, our hope in God amid suffering and adversity, and our love for our troubled neighbor.
Please feel free to reach out to Pastor Lorne, Amy Dakoske (parent organizer from POP), or me with any questions about our participation. We look forward to this journey together!
