"With each breath in, take in the faith of those
who have believed when belief seemed foolish,
who persevered. With each breath out, cherish."
- Ellen Bass, from her poem "Pray for Peace" in The Human Line
We celebrate the gifts of prophets in our time.
RESOLUTION TO RENEW OUR COMMITMENT TO NONVIOLENCE AS A JUST PEACE CHURCH:
While violence in our society has been an ongoing issue, recent events that strike at the heart of our safety and security have raised violence in our society front and center. For followers of a non-violent Jesus Christ, it is time to re-energize and re-commit to being a Just Peace Church.
During Lent 2013 the NAUCC focused on the theme "Faith in a Time of Violence." Following this reflective time, we approved a resolution (quarterly meeting, April 28) which was passed on to the conference. At the June Central Atlantic Conference meeting the resolution was approved with minor edits. The CAC will pass it up for the next national Synod. Click here
