If you want to participate in Gentle Faith via Zoom, let me know....we can sign in by 10 am.
For Gentle Faith, we are discerning how God is calling us (as a congregation, community, small group, and/or individually) to address Racism towards Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) - sisters and brothers, created in God's image, who have been marginalized for centuries.
Here are words from Pope Francis:
In his encyclical Laudato Si’, Pope Francis emphasized solidarity with the poor and marginalized as part of our faith vocation to pursue the common good:
In the present condition of global society, where injustices abound and growing numbers of people are deprived of basic human rights and considered expendable, the principle of the common good immediately becomes, logically and inevitably, a summons to solidarity and a preferential option for the poorest of our brothers and sisters. This option entails recognizing the implications of the universal destination of the world’s goods, but . . . it demands before all else an appreciation of the immense dignity of the poor in the light of our deepest convictions as believers.
