Beautiful Together

On Tuesday 6/28 a group of Hopesters & friends gathered for the "Beautiful Together: A Journey Toward Hope" concert at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. What an amazing evening.

More than 50 Orlando arts groups joined forces to perform dance, readings, poems and songs in tribute to the men and women slain 6/12 in the Pulse nightclub massacre. Proceeds benefited the OneOrlando fund, supporting victims and families of the shooting that left 49 dead and 53 wounded.

Before and afterwards concert-goers roamed the memorials outside the Dr. Phillips Center,  which were surrounded by members of the Angel Wing Project -- "winged" volunteers who in the days following the mass shooting assembled outside the funerals of victims to protect family members from anti-gay protestors. They have performed ministry. 

If you have done it to the least of these, you have done it unto me. ~ Jesus, Matthew 25.40

The evening was a lovely reminder for The City Beautiful that we are Beautiful Together.
