What will your sign be?
Recently in worship we reflected on what it means to live the name of God. We looked at the words of the ancient prophets, psalmists and story tellers from the scriptures as if they were signs they would carry at a justice rally. Words like: “Let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.” Amos 5.24, “What does God require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God” Micah 6:8 and “Speak out on behalf of the voiceless, and for the rights of all who are vulnerable.” Proverbs 31:8. Then we created our own signs as we asked, what will be our sign be as we answer the call to God’s justice. Here are the voices of HUCC and our signs: Practice Compassion● Marriage Equality Now ● Environmental Justice● Revolution: a voice of justice for all● Marriage Equality● The way people treat the environment● Marriage Equality in NC● All workers deserve a living wage● Children should be loved not abused● We are all God’s Children Peace and Love to All● My child is Multi racial…You’re the one MIXED UP● Every Voice deserves a vote● Gender Equality in All Nations (including our own)● Equal : Marriage, Religion, Gender, Education, Race, votes, $$$● True Legal Equality for All● Extend Missions work for Justice, Humane and Ethical Treatment of All God’s Creations, Human and Non-Human Alike, especially the voiceless● Appreciate Diversity, ED for All, Love thy Neighbor as thyself (that includes Everyone), Equality, No Racism, Love, Joy, Peace● Stop Discrimination through Education● Education for everyone not just for some● Equal Education opportunities for all● Living Wage!●Freedom of Religion● Voting Rights… Expand Medicaid● Peace on ALL the Earth● Equality● So, What will your sign be?
