Chaos or Community? A Prayer Gathering

Beloved Eco-Stewards Community,

The recent siege on the U.S. Capitol was a heartbreaking moment, leaving damage, hurt, and the loss of life. As people of faith, we are called to take part in the works of mercy, not the works of destruction and despair. We are called to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly (Micah 6:8). The Capitol siege leaves us with the glaring question: Where do we go from here? It’s the same question posed by Martin Luther King, Jr. more than 50 years ago in his final book of the same title.

In light of back-to-back celebrations of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and service and the inauguration of President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris, The Eco-Stewards Program would like to extend yet another invitation to gather as a community to continue praying for peace, reconciliation, and a path forward that values both climate justice and racial justice. We hope you will consider joining us for another Connect & Reflect gathering on Tuesday, January 19, at 8pm EDT as we pray for a hope-filled, peaceful future that upholds equality and justice as well as equity and kindness for all.

A postcard from Dr. King’s alma mater, Boston University School of Theology, reminded me this morning that “Out of chaos is where God creates.” (Rev. Dorlimar Lebron Malave, First United Methodist Church, New York, NY). We hope to see you next Tuesday on the eve of what we pray will be a peaceful transition of power. Please find the Zoom call info below.

In hope,
