(WAVY) Christians from various churches in Virginia Beach descended on the Oceanfront Saturday to pray for the healing of our nation.
The ‘All for Jesus’ Unity Walk kicked off at 17th street and participants sang and cheered as they made their way to the 31st Street Stage.
“This is a sign of unity in the churches,” said John Blanchard, who is a pastor at The Rock Church in Virginia Beach.
Blanchard says the group, All for Jesus which is made up of various pastors, held a racial reconciliation foot-washing ceremony a couple of weeks ago.
They wanted to follow it up with another event so, they came up with the idea for this unity walk.
