I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one.


As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.


-- John 17:20-21, NRSV

A Pastoral Letter to All Christians and People of Good Will

Grace and peace be to you, in the name of our Lord and Savior!
 
We write to you as leaders of Christian Churches Together in the USA. During the last three weeks of political unrest in Egypt, we have witnessed with great concern the escalation of violence. Hundreds of lives have been lost because of this violence. As followers of the Prince of Peace, we mourn from afar the lost of lives and pray that peace be restored.
 
In a more particular way, we are concerned for the ways in which this violence has affected the very lives of Christians in Egypt. Different news sources have reported how Christians have been the object of targeted violence because of their faith. These same sources have also reported how in many instances people of other faiths (particularly Islam) have risked their own lives to protect their Christian neighbors. We give thanks to God for those who have risked their lives to offer protection. We lament the violence against our brothers and sisters in Egypt.

CUIC Responds to Zimmerman Verdict

 

Image Last March, Churches Uniting in Christ joined with other faith leaders and ecumenical and civil organizations calling for an investigation into the killing of the unarmed African American adolescent Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman.  We raised the issue of racial profiling of African American male children and the presumption of criminality of black and brown people.  We challenged the so-called “stand-your-ground” laws that allowed Trayvon to be killed.  

Sixteen months later, a jury has declared Trayvon’s killer “not guilty.”  We suspect that the range of emotions and perspectives in the member churches of CUIC reflect the range of emotions and feelings in the nation at large. Many individuals are struggling with the unanswered questions of accountability for an unarmed child being profiled, followed and killed. Many individuals are remembering historical realities of black people being killed and no one being held accountable. Many individuals are wrestling with what to say to black and brown children about expectations of walking freely in America.   Many individuals are wondering how to fix a broken criminal justice system. Also, there are individuals within the CUIC congregations who are frustrated with the continued focus on race and what has been described as the “racial targeting” of George Zimmerman.  Further, there are those within our congregations whose fear of black and brown male children is insurmountable.  There are those who will say that this case has nothing to do with race.  There are those who will say that the Church needs to stick to the business of saving souls and leave justice and social issues to the courts. Then, there are those who will argue that the justice system has worked, and we need to “move on.” 

How do we move on, and how do we move on together?
