I just got back from Orlando, where it was my privilege to attend the Prayer March and Rally for Persecuted Christians. The Rev. Bruce Lieske and his team at Burning Bush Ministries are to be commended for their efforts in organizing a memorable and inspirational evening.
A number of Gates of Vienna regulars took part in the march. Among the representatives from Europe were Sister Hatune Dogan (Germany), Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff (Austria), and Henrik Ræder Clausen (Denmark), who took the video posted below.
Valerie Price of ACT! For Canada was also among the out-of-town (and out-of country) marchers.
Preceding the march was an ACT! For America meeting on Thursday night (where Elisabeth gave the speech you read a couple of days ago), and a panel discussion at a local Lutheran church on Friday night. The march on Saturday was followed by a prayer service at another Lutheran church, this one in downtown Orlando.
All the events were a great success, thanks to the tireless work of the ecumenical team that did the planning, donated the venues and materials, and provided the staffing for the march and the prayer service.
Many thanks also to Vlad Tepes for uploading this clip from yesterday evening:
