San Pedro church leaders say, “The solution to crime is found at home”

On Monday April 28th, Mayor of San Pedro Town Daniel Guerrero and members of his council met with church leaders from the San Pedro Evangelical Alliance. The main purpose of the meeting was to discuss general issues affecting San Pedro Town and the ways that church leaders can play an active role in helping address these issues. The hottest topic was ‘crime,’ and the gathering church leaders all echoed that San Pedro needs “spiritual healing.”

In his opening statement, Mayor Guerrero asked that they use their platform as leaders and “step up” their work, calling on them to join in the fight against crime. The Mayor said that there has been a significant breakdown in the family structure, which is causing the “collapse of the society.” He added that alcohol, prostitution and drugs are just three of the leading factors contributing to crime and the breakdown of society. “It has to be more than just preaching, we all must get more involved in the process of development on the island, and in the fight against crime,” said Mayor Daniel. He added that while crime is being fought from all angles, the most important place to tackle it is within the home, where the church has much influence.

After a sober reflection on the reality of crime on the island, the nine Pastors and Church leaders also had the opportunity to address the issues at hand. According to the leaders, the historic meeting of the community leaders and the church leaders is a step in the right direction. “It is the right approach, and as leaders we have a commitment, not only to our congregation but to this community,” said Pastor Francisco Flores.
