From August 14-16 a small group of us gathered in Portland, OR to pray, worship, and discern together how to seek justice.
We gathered to spur each other toward hope and action and we invite you to join us!
Sign the pledge if...
you want regular updates on how you can take action on key issues identified at the meeting-- action for racial justice, to welcome refugees and immigrants, and combat climate change.
We commit ourselves to
Pray daily the Lord’s prayer “your kingdom come, your will be done,” and pray against the the powers and principalities of racism, sexism, oppression, abuse and apathy.
Challenge our elected officials to take bold action to:
- reduce emissions that cause climate change, and provide support to impoverished communities suffering from the impacts of climate change
- empower and protect communities of color, end mass incarceration and heavily invest in education of all children no matter their zip code race or creed.
- protect and welcome refugees and immigrants, and all those who are fleeing oppression, conflict and persecution.
Change our own attitudes and behaviors that perpetuate injustice and deny God’s plan for all creation to flourish.
We are prophets of hope declaring a future when Jesus reigns over all creation and when racism, sexism, poverty and injustice are vanquished.
We are priests preaching and teaching the Gospel of Jesus; good news to the poor, freedom for the captives, and restoration for all that is broken.
We are poets imagining, mourning, celebrating, lamenting and laughing as we tell the story of the Kingdom of God crashing into our world.
