A call to Justice and Mercy (JAM)
What does God require of you but to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8
We all are called to do justice and love mercy. Jesus calls us to love our neighbor. As Christians we should be and are frustrated and troubled by the racism we see in our world, our country, and in our own communities. The question before us is how can we help to bring change to the effects of racism? The first step needed is to learn about racism. How do we talk about it? How did racism come to be? How does it show up in our daily lives? We must know about it to do something about it. So we begin to learn about racism, its language, its history, and how it still continues in subtle and not so subtle ways in our society.
The first session will begin Sunday, September 17, between services. There are plans for 3 different sessions throughout this 2023-24 year. A branch of Church and Society, this task force, known as JAM, has spent the past year in planning for these learning events.
