Lent 2017, day 17

lenten-reflections-on-the-confession-of-belhar“In the spirit of true unity, diversity is a gift. We are reminded to live into the reality of our different talents, different roles, and different abilities. When we celebrate the gifts present among our community, we create a language that allows us to name sustainable ways to continue to work for justice.”

Lenten Reflections on the Confession of Belhar

This Lenten season I am using a new resource to explore the Belhar Confession: Lenten Reflections on the Confession of Belhar, edited by Kerri N. Allen and Donald K. McKim. The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), in which I serve as a teaching elder (pastor), added the Confession of Belhar to our Book of Confessions in 2016. This confession came from the Dutch Reformed Mission Church during its historic struggle against apartheid in South Africa.

See you along the Trail.
