A Prayer Walk From NYC to Chicago With ATS Alumnus Al Taylor
If someone asks you to walk a mile in his shoes, you might consider it. But would you be willing to trek 780 miles from New York City to Chicago?
That’s what 2011 Alliance Theological Seminary alumnus Rev. Al Taylor did. The pastor at Infinity Mennonite Church in Harlem is no stranger to walking. In fact , he completed his prayer walk this past August traveling through New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Michigan. His story was featured in the Summer 2016 issue of The Positive Community, a New Jersey publication.
Under the protection of police escort, he participated in a prayer gathering on Chicago’s South Side where more than 500 individuals have been victims of violence in 2016. Taylor's prayer walk was covered by Fox News 32 Chicago.
Under the banner of “It’s a Love Thing,” Rev. Taylor’s walk was a demonstration against gun violence. He is also the founder of “Man Up in Harlem,” an outreach ministry for men that includes weekly prayer walks and a variety of community service efforts.
