Beginning September 20 and running until October 11 we will have special guests at out 12:00 pm CH@Ts. The Rev. Seth Wispelwey and The Rev Tracy Howe are married pastors in the United Church of Christ traditions. Seth is most well known for being one of the key organizers of Congregate C’ville, a faith-based group that organized to be in opposition to the white supremacist groups that came together in Charlottesville for the “Unite the Right” rally in August 2017. Together they invited interfaith clergy to stand in solidarity and love, to provide instruction on nonviolent action, to prepare and hold prayer services during the rally. They will share some of their own experiences, help us to center our justice work in our Christian faith, and give some practical advice for our congregation. All are welcome to join.
For Sunday, September 27th take some time to read and reflect on the following articles:
