St. Andrew’s Peace and Justice Committee
We strive to follow Jesus in the way of love by advocating for laws, policies, and practices that counter discrimination based on skin color, national origin, faith, economic status, gender identity, and who people choose to love. We engage by voting, direct action, policy advocacy, mobilizing resources, and prayer.
The Committee is aware that we may not all be of one mind, but that we all share the Baptismal vow to “strive for peace and justice.” We aim to embrace our differences and come together, learning from and listening to each other always.
The group is discussing the materials in the “Sacred Ground” series from the Episcopal Church. Monthly discussions will resume on Zoom after Easter. On April 20 we will discuss the materials in Session #7. For more information or to join the committee, please contact Kathy Cartelli.
