“We’re called to witness against the powerful and privileged by living as Christ wanted us to live–by sitting with those whom no one wants to sit with, by opening ourselves up to the hurt and pain that are caused by those who control and harm others. We must do this to make the church reflect the diversity of the world around us. We must work to dismantle that ability to control and harm others.”
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.
