'Lights of Love for Charlottesville': Summit's Christ Church Hosts 'Vigil for Peace' Aug. 14

SUMMIT, NJ - In a program that will see "little candles of love lit to combat the torches of hate," The Summit Interfaith Council will host 'Lights of Love for Charlottesville,' a "vigil for peace," August 14, from 7:30 - 8:15 p.m. at Christ Church in Summit.

The Virginia city was the site of a August 12 "Unite the Right" rally organized by white nationalists and the 'alt-right', which saw violent clashes between the white nationalist groups and those opposing them. and where 32-year-old Heather Heyer was tragically killed when 20-year-old James Alex Fields, Jr. of Ohio allegedly drove his car at at high rate of speed directly into a group of counter-protesters. Multiple news reports have indicated that Fields, Jr. identified with white supremacist groups and their ideologies.

In addition, two Virginia state troopers died when their helicopter crashed while performing surveillance duties related to the nationalist rally.

The Reverend Chuck Rush of Christ Church expects a wide, interfaith and multigenerational cross-section of the Summit community and its neighbors to attend the vigil, saying the intent of the event is to send a clear message that racism, bigotry and hatred "will not be tolerated." Reverend Rush said the brief words and song that will comprise the vigil's program are intended to communicate "justice informed by love" and to let those in attendance and throughout the community know that, "If you are horrified by this, you are not alone."
