Rev. Willie Ray

Posted by Al Hathaway Sunday, June 20, 2010

I have just recently learned that Rev. Willie Ray is recovering from a stroke. Rev. Ray is one who in spite of his own pain and issues seeks to be a voice for those who are without voice or advocate. Receiving this training through the Model Cities program he firmly believes that by mobilizing people issues that impact citizens and communities can be addressed. Without fear of criticism or critique he has walked the street of Baltimore emphatically proclaiming, "Stop the Killing." Periodically he would obtain press coverage for candlelight vigils he would hold with grieving relatives who have lost a member to senseless violence. You can always find him in gatherings of clergy insisting that they should open the doors of their churches during the week and weekends as safe havens. Over the years some have discounting his efforts and others have critiqued his personal lifestyle. I would say, "he that is without sin, cast the first stone." I pray for his recovery and say to Brother Ray that now is the time to rest secure in the arms of God.
