The death of Charleena Lyles was tragic. Several gatherings have since taken place in response to this tragedy. As a leading advocate for social justice, Rev Kelle Brown led the invocation at a public forum arranged by Councilmember Lorena Gonzalez at Kane Hall the evening of Tuesday, June 27. Rev. Brown then joined other faith leaders in a discussion with Mayor Murray and Chief of Police, Kathleen O’Toole on Wednesday, June 28. Her passion and gifted use of words was well received:
“I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you reaching out to our community at the resident-only meeting held on our campus last week. Your words of faith and healing, combined with your advocacy for Charleena Lyles have been a welcome comfort for so many of us,” said Office of Seattle Councilmember Lorena Gonzalez.
Kelle’s response: “Thank you for reaching out. It is my honor. God won't let me rest when there is no justice for too many of us. You are amazing. I'm so grateful for your truth-telling and grace.” –Rev. Kelle Brown, Lead Pastor Plymouth UCCSubscribe
