Last night, over 60 pastors were on a zoom call to discuss ways in which the church can speak with a unified voice to end racism, hatred, and violence right now. Today, many of us participated in a press conference that communicated a resounding message of love for everyone regardless of race, economics, or religious affiliation. We are going to spend some time over the next few weeks addressing this urgent issue and commit ourselves to move into action. I am thankful for the Faith Initiative to End Child Poverty and to be a pastor here at First Presbyterian Church. I ask that your thoughts and actions reflect those of Jesus as we welcome all people to the table.
