Representing Bishop Jung and the Wisconsin Conference UMC, Assistant to the Bishop Steve Polster participated in an interfaith prayer service for peace in the Middle East at All Saints’ Cathedral in Milwaukee on Wednesday, July 16. Tom Heinen, Executive Director of the Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee, said the service was uplifting, and that it was inspirational to see leaders of so many faith traditions gathered in unity. But he said attendees were also reminded that praying is only the first step to peace. “Prayers without action are meaningless,” said The Very Rev. Kevin Carroll, Dean of All Saints’ Cathedral.
