Broken families, struggling schools and a struggling economy.
Like most of the nation, these are issues confronting Yazoo.
“It’s not like a natural disaster where you can immediately see the damage, but it’s still very devastating,” said Rev. George Woodliff, pastor of Trinity Episcopal Church. “When families are destroyed the consequences are felt in our schools, our neighborhoods, our economy... it just goes on and on. We ignore this at our own peril.”
A group of local ministers are confronting the issues by encouraging Yazooans of all denominations to join together in prayer. Pray Yazoo was established in an effort to unite the community to seek God’s help. Woodliff said he believes many people in Yazoo are crying out for help.
“We as Christians have an obligation to see the problems that exist and ask for God’s guidance in seeking a solution,” Woodliff said.
