At Monday evening’s ICARE event, a consortium of local pastors upbraided Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry for not showing up to commit to a homeless day resource center.

It was about the April 11 ICARE Nehemiah Assembly: a literal Come to Jesus moment for Jacksonville politicians, who are held to account for social issues […]

ICARE, the Interfaith Coalition for Action, Reconciliation and Empowerment, describes itself as a “diverse, multi-issue, organization of 40 member congregations representing over 30,000 Duval County residents.” On Monday night, three thousand people from these congregations, and others throughout the community, are going to pack the Potter’s House Church on Jacksonville’s Westside to discuss issues on […]
