    Spiritual Reflections on Politics

Human Rights Group

It is important to apply our faith and thoughtfulness to the important social issues of our day. Monthly meetings bring together church members for discussion on such topics as civil rights, environmental concerns, new legislation, health care reform, education, local business development issues. Group discussion may begin with a short article from the newspaper. People are encouraged to articulate all the different positions people seem to hold, and contemplate what they think Jesus would say or recommend, and how to enact positive and peaceful change in the world. Conversation is balanced, respectful of all viewpoints, and rooted in a desire to know the deeper mind of God.
