pray for the body of Christ
: The Coptic Christian Community of Nashville will hold a rally on Tuesday, January 19, 2010, in front of Rep. Jim Cooper's office 605 Church Street from 111 AM to 2PM to protest the killing of seven Coptic Orthodox Christians in Nag Hammadi, Egypt on January 7, 2010. Muslim gunmen opened fire with machine guns on worshipers as they were coming out of church after celebrating Christmas liturgy. Besides the seven Copts that were killed, 25 others were wounded and the next day, numerous homes and businesses were set ablaze, leaving many homeless and without a livelihood.
