January 25 event Journey for Justice POSTPONED

JOURNEY FOR JUSTICE 2015
A FAITH GATHERING FOR THE PURPOSE OF COMMITTING TO A COVENANT

Ward4DC04_1331139360 (2)-001Mayor Bowser will meet with the Good Faith Board and leadership on February 3rd to discuss and plan the Journey for Justice covenant event.  Currently, a pre-meeting is required before a community event involving the Mayor is scheduled. As she settles into her new role, the Mayor has many urgent demands on her time.  We appreciate her willingness to meet with us and plan the event.

January 25 event Journey for Justice POSTPONED

While you wait for the Covenant event……

  •  Spend 10 worthwhile minutes with the Biblical Roots of Justice as 4 clergy reflect on our call as faith communities to work for justice for our neighbors in need.  Watch the Video of the October 12th event.

  • Read the Resolution and Covenant again.  42 DC congregations and 5 faith organizations have signed the Resolution.  Encourage your congregation to become a participant in the covenant community!   There is still time to sign the Resolution.  Contact:  John Hisle, johnhisle@verizon.net, 301-325-8437.

  •  Pray for the 575 families with 1107 children living in the shelters maintained by the city, January 14, 2015.  On that night, the city shelters housed 2,575 persons.

WE CAN AND MUST DO BETTER!
