We're a Peace-and-Justice-making faith community because we believe that the Spirit is grieved by injustice, inequity, war, poverty, prejudice and oppression of every kind. The life and spirit of Jesus Christ direct us to dismantle all forms of injustice, and to transform anything that is demeaning or destructive to the human spirit or to any other part of God's creation. We affirm Nonviolence as a way of life for courageous people. Shalom (Peace) is not just the absence of war but the presence of Justice and Love.
