Notes from the Social Justice Team:
Love Your Neighbor
We seek to respond to Christ’s call through advocacy and acts of peace, justice, and love. We will work to have a transforming impact on local, national and global communities.
A Moment for Prayer and Reflection
Several of us met last Sunday for our Social Justice Moment of Prayer and Reflection. The recent wave of Police shootings, racial discrimination and gun violence weighed heavy on each of our hearts. We discussed police departments, like those in St. Louis and LA, who are restructuring how they respond to mental health calls.
If these issues are important to you, learn more and act through the UCC website.
Demilitarize Law Enforcement
Act to End Police Violence
Join the UCC’s Justice and Peace Action Network to be aware of issues in our world and how to respond.
We ended our time together with a prayer for peace and change.
We come before you today, asking that you give us strength and courage to face our failures, our faults, and our fallacies. We as individuals, as communities, as industries and businesses as community organizations as well as political institutions have a long history of traditions AND courage to CHANGE. We ask your guidance, your grace and courage to accept the truths that need to be recognized to move from certain traditions based in fallacies to more appropriate practices, beliefs, and policies that are truly based in Christ taught Truths!
Again with your guidance and our humility help us work to get closer to liberty, equality and justice for all.
Anyone is welcome to join us the third Sunday of each month at 11:30 am for the Moment of Prayer and Reflection. Watch the Weekly Word for Zoom invite.
