Fly the Christian Flag over Montgomery, Alabama for a Month


We, The Christian Believers of Montgomery, petition the city of Montgomery, Alabama to fly the Christian flag for one month.

Our city of Montgomery has a remarkable history, especially during the Civil Rights Movement. Back then, Christianity played a pivotal role in advocating for justice and equality. Today, we have an opportunity to honor that legacy by petitioning to fly the Christian flag for a month.

**Reason 1: SYMBOL OF FAITH**
When we talk about the Christian flag, it's not just a symbol – it's a representation of our faith in Jesus Christ, a faith that inspired many during the Civil Rights Movement.

**Verse: Galatians 3:27**
Galatians 3:27 reminds us, "For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ." The flag symbolizes that commitment to Christ that inspired so many to stand up for justice.

As we think about the struggles of the Civil Rights Movement, we remember that it was about more than just racial equality. It was about the freedom to express our beliefs openly protected by our first amendment right to freedom of religion and free speech, just like displaying the Christian flag stands for today.

**Verse: John 13:35**
John 13:35 has a special relevance here: "By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." That love was a driving force during the Movement, and the flag can remind us to continue that legacy.

Those who fought for civil rights upheld values like love, compassion, and peace – values that the Christian flag also represents.

**Verse: Matthew 5:16**
Remember what Jesus said in Matthew 5:16? "Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." The flag can be a reminder to continue spreading those good deeds.

Just like the Civil Rights Movement brought people together for a common cause, flying the Christian flag can unite our community around our shared faith.

**Verse: Matthew 28:19**
Matthew 28:19 tells us to "go therefore and make disciples of all nations." Our flag can be a conversation starter, just as the Movement sparked conversations about equality.

Our city's history is deeply tied to Christianity's role in the Civil Rights Movement. The flag can honor that heritage.

**Verse: Deuteronomy 32:7**
Deuteronomy 32:7 encourages us to "remember the days of old; consider the generations long past." The flag is a way to remember those who fought for justice.

During the Civil Rights Movement, prayer played a significant role in guiding actions. The flag can serve as a reminder to pray for our city, just as they prayed for justice back then.

**Verse: 1 Timothy 2:1**
Let's not forget 1 Timothy 2:1: "I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people." This flag can prompt us to pray for everyone, just like they did during the Movement.

By flying the Christian flag for the month of September, we're not just displaying a piece of fabric. We're honoring our city's great history, celebrating our faith, and remembering how Christianity played a pivotal role during the Civil Rights Movement. It's a way to connect our past with our present and continue spreading the values that define us as a community and a beacon of freedom to the rest of the world.
