Lutherans, others declare "holy ground"

ELCA Bishop Craig Johnson and Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak helped over 100 members from fourteen ISAIAH Minneapolis faith communities to declare congregational neighborhoods “Holy Ground.” The gathering took place June 12 at St. Joan of Arc Roman Catholic Church in south Minneapolis.
The declaration was intended as a practical demonstration of faith values to create a safe and just Minneapolis. ISAIAH is a multi-faith organization of congregations committed to building an equitable and just community through intentional and intensive relationship building, development and involvement of lay leadership and effective participation in the public arena.
