Presbyterians Doing Justice
The words of Micah are ringing in our ears this week:
“God has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Holy One require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”
Presbyterians all over the country are accustomed to working for justice for LGBT people in the church – especially in those years when we’re heading into a General Assembly and we prepare to prayerfully discern the will of God through the voices of the people. What may not be as obvious are the ways Presbyterians are working to do justice on behalf of LGBT people in civil society, 365 days a year.
Involvement in local chapters of Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, working to elect local council members and state legislators who will enact just legislation, and reaching out to those who have been historically wounded by the church are just a few of the ways Presbyterians across the country are following Micah’s directive.
Right now, Presbyterians in the four states where marriage equality is up for a vote in November – Washington, Minnesota, Maryland and Maine – are having thousands of sacred conversations with voters, and organizing for justice. Pray for peace and work for justice.
