While many in our nation, including members of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), are struggling with the recent acquittal in the case of Florida v. George Zimmerman, resultant from the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, it is important that we remember our faith commitment to pray for those persons directly involved. Irrespective of our opinions regarding the outcome of the case, both families have encountered a significant ordeal over the past year. Neither the Martin nor Zimmerman families will find an easy resolution or closure in the days ahead. Therefore, as people of faith, we must be steadfast in our commitment to pray for their healing.
Mientras muchas personas en nuestra nación, incluyendo a la membresía de la Iglesia Presbiteriana (EUUA) están haciendo frente a la reciente sentencia absolutoria en el caso de la Florida contra George Zimmerman, como resultado de la muerte a tiros de Trayvon Martin, es importante que recordemos nuestro compromiso de fe de orar por aquellas personas que están directamente involucradas. Ambas familias, independientemente de nuestras opiniones con respecto al resultado del litigio, han enfrentado una prueba difícil este pasado año. Ni la familia Martin, ni la familia Zimmerman, encontrarán una solución fácil o un final satisfactorio en los próximos días. Por lo tanto, como comunidad de fe, debemos ser firmes en nuestro compromiso de orar por su sanidad.
