At All Saints Church one of our core values is putting our faith into action. We believe our personal journeys of faith are informed by and made accountable to the world’s deep needs when we commit ourselves to the courageous and risk-filled work of peace and justice.
Visit the Action Table on the lawn every Sunday as we take action locally, nationally and globally on issues from hunger & poverty to marriage equality; from ending torture to building interfaith bridges of understanding; from peacemaking to immigration reform; from environmental sustainability to economic justice.
This Sunday, August 20:
This week we send a letter to the Mayor of Charlottesville, VA, to express our support to the Charlottesville community as they heal from the hateful demonstrations, senseless violence and domestic terrorism of last weekend. The act of terrorism that occurred on Saturday, August 12th, was an act of cowardice fueled by hatred and intolerance. We write to offer our condolences to the Charlottesville community for the loss and trauma they experienced as a result of the violence.
We offer our sympathy for those who were injured, and we mourn the deaths of those who were killed. We condemn the racism, antisemitism and antigay attitudes that were manifested by white supremacist demonstrators in Charlottesville. We call on the Charlottesville police and Virginia State Police to prevent violence like this from happening. We support Charlottesville and our nation in efforts to heal from this recent trauma.
VOTING is both a privilege and a responsibility as we live out our baptismal covenant to “strive for justice and peace among all people.” Follow the link below to register online.
