About the event
The Palmetto Journey of Hope is a collaborative speaking tour between SCADP and Journey of Hope...From Violence to Healing. The Journey is an organization made up of murder victims family members, death row family members, death row survivors, and others affected by the use of the death penalty. These individuals share their stories with audiences to help them understand how the act of violence wrought by the death penalty does not bring the healing that victims need after trauma. Speakers from The Journey have learned that killing people who've killed other people is never the answer; it is love and compassion for all of humanity.
Today's event features the Rev. Dr. Jack Sullivan, Jr. (a murder victim family member) as the guest preacher at Silver Hill Memorial UMC. The Reverend Dr. Jack Sullivan is the executive director of the 103-year-old statewide body known as the Ohio Council of Churches. As the OCC is a “Jesus movement for unity, justice, and peace,” Dr. Sullivan gives public and collegial leadership and service that lifts up the Council’s priorities while working to enhance the relationships of the 17 Christian denominations that comprise the OCC. He is the immediate-past Senior Pastor of First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Findlay, OH, and is former Executive Director of Murder Victims’ Families for Reconciliation, and Regional Minister and President of the Northwest and Pennsylvania Regions, respectively, of his denomination, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) US and Canada.
