When a person understands the value of life…
they are less likely to readily take the life of another, or engage in activities that would cut their own life short.
By the same token, when they’re aware that death could occur at any time, to anyone, of any age, they are more inclined to build a positive legacy, abandon destructive habits, and live in a manner that promotes the wellbeing of self, family, and community.
To this end, Dr. R. A. Vernon and The Word Church present The Casket Crusades, where the goal is to shed light on the alarming number of people dying in our communities due to drug abuse and violence.
We’ll march through some of the hardest hit areas with men carrying caskets on their shoulders, to symbolize the burden we all share when a life is taken. Each march will conclude with a powerful, uplifting word from Dr. Vernon.
The Casket Crusades will feature
A climactic procession of caskets on public roads
Caskets with mirrors lodged inside them, enabling those who look inside the caskets to see their own reflections
An uplifting worship service and inspiring message from Dr. Vernon
Activities for children and families
