, a growing national movement of leaders reclaiming the moral leadership of America’s pulpits, held a “Peaceably Gather Rally” in downtown Louisville on Tuesday led by pastors from black, white and Latino congregations, and attended by Mayor Greg Fischer, police officers and concerned citizens alike.

In an event in which many were on their knees, Pastor Brian Gibson announced a new PPP Plan — Prayer, Preaching and Partnership — to end the riots and heal racial divisions.

Calling on pastors everywhere to join a national movement for peace, Gibson detailed a new PPP Plan and announced he will lead by example by traveling to Washington, DC this weekend to preach.

Peaceably Gather PPP Plan

● PRAYER: People of all backgrounds must come together in humility and repentance, confess the communal sins of pride, arrogance and apathy, then seek God’s direction for bringing healing to their communities and neighborhoods.

● PREACHING: Pastors and clergy must leave the safety of their pulpits and go to the areas that have seen the violence and riots, preaching the power of God’s word and His truth over those neighborhoods.

● PARTNERSHIP: Suburban churches need to establish “sister church” relationships, partnering with urban churches. They must come together, share their needs, their experiences, support each other’s work and preach from each other’s pulpits.
