January, 2016 | Today, we are facing a profound crisis. This January our call as people of faith will be tested as never before. We cannot continue ‘business as usual’ while our neighbor has their health care stolen from them or has their family torn apart. What is our response as we face an environmental crisis that could threaten our survival and threaten our commitment to God’s creation and future generations of God’s people on this Earth?
Through our faith, we have a unique and prophetic vision for the future that oppressive systems cannot overpower. Our strongest offense is our powerful defense.
We are in a new era. We have a renewed call on us as people of faith to come together and make a choice: We will choose either complicity to violence and dehumanization or prophetic resistance through our faith. This choice cannot be abstract or sentimental because for many it is about life and death.
