Another World is Possible mixed media art by Ricardo Levins Morales

In this issue find out how we have responded to our Board’s “Call to Action” and, in so doing, have taken our initial steps towards fulfilling our new Vision.  Learn how our children and youth are experiencing this journey. Survey the programming in which our adults are engaged. Hear from members of our Core Groups why they made their deep commitments to participate.

Personal reflections are offered by Environmental Justice Core Group members Charles King and Nancy Pierce and by Racial Justice Core Group members Karen Bringle and Anne Magnuson. Rachel Pepper offers a reflection on tackling the work of justice with our children and youth.
  • Charles King: “I expect that working with our Environmental Justice Core Group will offer opportunities for a more intimate experience, through learning about local environmental concerns. I hope that we will identify and collaborate with local groups that advocate for the people who are most likely to experience environmental degradation first hand in our own part of the world.”
  • Karen Bringle: “I would like us to transform ourselves into listeners–listening to voices of a great variety of people of color in a variety of settings on an ongoing basis. I would like a majority of our congregation to understand much of the history of how white supremacy has been instilled and maintained in our church, our country and throughout the world.”
