A group of St. Martin’s parishioners is uniting to improve our understanding of issues surrounding race; privilege; class; religious, ethnic and gender intolerance; and other social justice issues. As these issues have commanded the headlines in recent years, we believe they demand our attention as a people of faith who are called to uphold our baptismal covenant, striving for justice and peace among all people, and respecting the dignity of every human being.
Please join Jane Klieve and Kurt Greenbaum for a series of discernment meetings in mid-October. We invite members of the congregation to join us to help form this ministry, which we believe will focus initially on education, awareness and personal growth. From there, we expect to move toward adult formation programming and additional ministry in the world — but that will depend on the appetite of participants as we build and shape this ministry.
We plan to host discernment meetings at three times to maximize the opportunity for participation among parishioners. Please join us for one or all of the following sessions:
- Saturday, October 8, following the 5:05 service, at the Corner Pub
- Sunday, October 9, during the Christian formation period between services at church
- Wednesday, October 12, at 6:00 p.m., at St. Martin’s (food will be provided)
Please RSVP to Kurt by email to [email protected] if you’re interested. Let us know who is coming and at which meeting time so we can best plan.
