The Faith and Justice Committee offers a means for members of our parish to be engaged in our common Christian values of justice, compassion, and hospitality to the outsider, and to do so in community with one another.
The Committee engages in the following:
o Local and regional justice issues that need advocacy
o Providing educational resources on current justice issues
o Educational events, discussion forums and guest speakers
o Building relationships where there may be division, or reaching out to communities that experience exclusion
The Committee is keenly aware that we may not all be of one mind, but that we all share the Baptismal vow to “strive for peace and justice.” We aim to embrace our differences and come together, learning from and listening to each other always.
We invite St. Paul’s parishioners to help us in this work. Sign up for our email alerts, share your ideas, join the committee, or just participate in the events we make available. You can visit our Faith and Justice Table after services on Sundays for more information and to write a letter to your representative about pressing policy concerns.
Meanwhile, visit the Episcopal Public Policy Network website to read their blog and see videos about their work. We think you’ll be inspired.
To find out how to join our committee (or to just come check it out), or to be added to our email action alerts, contact Cassie Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
