Stories of People Striving Towards a World in which
God’s Love and God’s Grace Inform Our Works and Our Deeds
In this current political climate it may be hard for folks to understand how the church can and should respond. How can we ourselves answer the call to lift up our cross and carry it daily as followers of Jesus Christ? What does it mean to follow Christ? How can we change anything? Does it do any good to put on a Pink hat and declare our distaste for the current building up of empire? At St. Johns UCC we may not have all the answers. At our church we are blessed with location. We are situated in one of the poorest neighborhoods in the state of Michigan. This means that the need for God’s grace and Love come knocking on our door on a daily basis multiple times. At St. John’s UCC we don’t need to ask ourselves some of these tough questions because we are reminded of the cross we all bear. But some of us struggle with affecting larger change. This is where the following links come in. These are the folks doing the tough work of connecting faith, church, works, God, Christ and the Holy Spirit to our daily lives. Some are devotional. Some are political. Some are theological. All give voice to the struggle of living as a Christian in a country divided against itself. We all must work towards healing and unity. Maybe these sites will offer inspiration along with the idea that we are not alone in our struggle.
May God bless us and keep us: one and all.
