Among the most exciting moments in this process of Redemption is watching the pieces come together. Anyone can do this. (You don't have to be a prophet!) Just by being an observer of the human scene,...current events, talk radio, internet news and daily experiences,--all this can be eye-opening about how the Rebbe's prophecy is being fulfilled.

Harrisburg Mayor Linda Thompsonsaid she will participate in the event. 
The Rev. Herb Stoner, pastor of adult training at Community Church of Camp Hill, said the answers to problems in Harrisburg and the region won’t be found in the wisdom or ability of humans. 
“Therefore, united, we turn our hearts to God, knowing that he is good, and that his plans for the capitol region will give us a bright future and a glorious hope,” Stoner said. 
An ecumenical service ending the fast will be at 4 p.m. Friday in Goodwin Memorial Baptist Church, 2447 Green St.
