A Peaceful Way Forward


Janet Wittenberg shares a portion of the story of her time in Durham, NC. Her and her husband, Pastor Virgil Wittenberg, were instrumental players in helping a community find a faithful and peaceful way forward in the immediate aftermath of the desegregation ruling. They lived in the heart of the black community and served at a black church. They opened their homes and their lives. Because of their ministry and their hearts they became a bridge between the two tension laden groups. Through prayer and fostering strategic relationships a peaceful way forward was found. May we be inspired to do the same today.
