The ABCs of Love for Health, Justice and Liberty for All Life: Our Heart’s Wisdom Points Us Beyond Personal Violence & Planetary Exploitation

A draft of The ABCs of Love for Health, Justice and Liberty for All Life: Our Heart’s Wisdom Points Us Beyond Personal Violence & Planetary Exploitation is posted at www.freedomwise.com. I seek others to enhance its content and presentation in print and other media because this material will be most completely helpful when produced collaboratively. The material promotes dialogue among people of all paths of faith in overcoming the obstacles that fear has fabricated as false yet persuasive excuses for not sharing the power of divine love as Jesus shared it -- without reservation and extended to everyone. The ABCs of love liberate our hearts and minds from learned fears to allow us to discover within us the native gifts and power with which we are each endowed by our Creator and to share these gifts and power within bonds of trust beyond the ego's learned barriers of mistrust.

Environmental Justice with Indigenous Peoples

Each year, Creation Justice Ministries offers a resource to help Christian communities pray, learn, and act on a certain issue, chosen by Creation Justice Ministries' board. Our 2017 resource explores the impact the Doctrine of Discovery has had on U.S. history and theology, as well as our relationships with God's creation and one another. It also includes information about tribal sovereignty, sacred places, and consumer choices. The resource can be useful for observing Earth Day Sunday on the Sunday closest to Earth Day (April 22), the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation on September 1, or the Sunday closest to Indigenous Peoples Day/Columbus Day in October. Find sermon preparation resources, hymn suggestions, Christian education ideas, action opportunities, and more. Download it today at www.creationjustice.org/indigenous, and remember you can find a host of other Christian education resources released in previous years at www.creationjustice.org/educational-resources.

Rabbis Against Gun Violence Resource Packet

On Wednesday, December 14th, 2106, the 4th Annual National Vigil for All Gun Violence Victims will be held in Washington, D.C. at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, launching local vigils and commemorations across the nation from December 14-18th. Congregations from coast to coast will participate – offering prayers, songs, and education. Faith communities will remember those who have lost their lives to gunfire, pray for those whose lives have been forever changed because of gun related injuries or the loss of a loved one, and educate one another on proven strategies to reduce gun violence. Your congregation, community, school or family can participate by incorporating songs, readings, poems, prayers, sermons and/or discussions in your service, at a community gathering or vigil, or around your family Shabbat table. This Resource Packet has ready-to-use materials, suggestions, and links to other sources that make it easy for you to find what you might want or need to make this happen.
