Wow!

North Carolina-based Billy Graham Evangelical Association took to the streets of Charlotte on Wednesday. They prayed with protesters and sought to calm the violence.

A saying popped into Kelly Burke’s mind late Wednesday night.

Standing in the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association headquarters after a night of outreach in the ministry’s backyard of Charlotte, North Carolina, he said, “Never doubt in the dark what God has shown you in the light.”

Burke, a manager with the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team (RRT), will readily admit he’s paraphrasing, but the words attributed to late Pastor Adrian Rogers did bring some comfort after a challenging evening. Crisis-trained chaplains with the RRT deployed on Wednesday to Uptown Charlotte in the aftermath of violent civil unrest triggered by a fatal officer-involved shooting on Tuesday.

In the middle of the violence, these Christians brought peace.

Here are some images and a video Franklin Graham shared on Twitter:

Beautiful!
