A rally was held in Carthage at Trustmark Park on Sunday. Pastors and community leaders from all walks of life and denominations gathered to discuss race relations, and experiences of strength, hope, and the love of Jesus. Mayor Vivians led “Amazing Grace,” congregants layered across the grassy knoll followed. Then the leaders laid hands and prayed over the Mayor as the service closed. There were no riots. Peace and unity prevailed. Could revival be not so far away?
