As the first denomination to ordain a woman in 1854, our United Church of Christ has always empowered, trusted, and respected women and their leadership, wisdom, and self-determination. Today’s Supreme Court decision is counter to what we stand for and to the wholeness and wellness of women. While our social justice list is long, it just got longer and even more personal for over half the population. I encourage you to grieve, to pray, and most of all to act! This is not justice – this is not mercy, it is not walking humbly with our God who made us equal, free, wise, and discerning.This evening, June 24, 2022, the UCC is offering a service of Gathering and Lament: Beyond Roe at 6:00 p.m. Eastern on Zoom. Register for the webinar or watch the stream on YouTube by using the links below. I also invite you to stay tuned as we find ways to engage our collective power and faithfulness to protect women, their rights, and their ability to choose.
