How to Create the Beloved Community In our Baptismal Covenant (Prayer Book page 304), we vow to "respect the dignity of every human being" and to "seek and serve Christ, loving our neighbor as ourselves." These vows are not a one-time pledge, but a daily evaluation we should do with our actions, looking to see how the ways we interact with those around us both helps to create as well as hinders the formation of the Beloved Community that Jesus sought to build here on earth.
Please join us on February 8th from 1:30-2:30pm as we explore how we can create the Beloved Community. We will use Just Us: An American Conversation by Claudia Rankine.
