A call to prayer and action in response to the violence in Charlottesville

Here's an expert from the MCUSA Denominational statement about the recent events in Charlottesville, VA.

"As followers of Jesus, we must speak out against the evil of racism, white supremacy and neo-Nazism that prompted the demonstration. We declare with the authority of scripture that all people are created in the image of God, and that no so-called race is inherently superior to any other. We call all of Mennonite Church USA to be watchful and open to the Spirit of God, inspiring and emboldening us to stand together with people who are the target of hate solely because of the color of their skin, gender, sexual orientation or religion."

In his contribution, Pastor Joel writes, "The answer about church discipline is not in returning to a supposed golden age when the church did discipline well. Even if we wanted to, we would not achieve a unifying consensus on what grounds and under whose authority discipline should be exercised.  Rather the answer of church discipline is in a reneweed committment to teach and pass on the faith..."  Click here to read more.
