The Greensboro Pulpit Forum of Clergy is planning a healing ceremony to discuss the next steps in the efforts to address violent crime in the city.

A Service of Healing for Hurting Hearts will be held on September 10 at 4:30 p.m. at Trinity AME Zion Church on Florida Street.

The pastors say that Sunday’s service is geared towards addressing the hurt, anguish and pain of those who have experienced violent crime, particularly those who have had loved ones murdered.

“Our city is experiencing a near record number of homicides and in the business of our city we clergy have found out that we have not taken the time to address the hurt and pain of those who are left behind,” said Rev.
