Christian Leaders React to Ferguson

Last night, the nation watched as many in the town of Ferguson reacted with outrage and disappointment, when the local prosecutor announced that officer Darren Wilson would not be indicted in the shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown.

Throughout the evening, leaders in the Christian community joined millions across the nation, tweeting their own thoughts, prayers and messages of support to the community in turmoil, many using the hashtag #evangelicals4justice.

Here’s a look at how many of them have reacted to the events in Ferguson on the evening of Nov. 24, sending messages expressing grief, but also for hope and justice for the future. (Note, more tweets will be added throughout the afternoon.)
