“Understand and accept yourself as you are. We all have the same path to God.
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — It doesn’t matter who you are, what language you speak or where you live. What matters is unity and peace. This is the First Baptist Church’s message to the community and to Ukraine.
Four songs created by Ukrainians were played by Loyd Lott, a carillonneur. He named a few.
“Ana Maria, what a moonlit night and what a prayer for Ukraine,” Lott said.
On Sunday, outside of First Baptist, a 15-minute concert was played. No lyrics, just music.
“Harmony. Harmony and peace,” said Julio Leal, who supports peace in Ukraine, “and listening to those bells is something beautiful.”
Harmony is a message; A Julio appreciates. He said his whole heart was with the people losing everything in Ukraine, and it’s important to remember that we are all human, we all feel and we all deserve support.
“Understand and accept each other as we are. We all have the same path to God,” Leal added.
Bill Humphries taught English and Bible study in Ukraine a few years ago. He said religion remained the same across all borders and waters.
“They are like us and the Christians there are like the Christians here,” Humphries said.
He said there were still people in Ukraine he kept in touch with and as of Sunday they were alive. He said it was a blessing and hopes it will continue.
“We text them and they text us. Yes, we reassure them that we are praying for them, and God has a plan and we are praying for their faith to stay strong,” Humphries added.
First Baptist will let the community know when there is another concert. In the meantime, if you would like to donate and help people in Ukraine, some links have been provided below.
