Study Guide for Laudato Si'

Pope Francis recently released a highly anticipated papal encyclical, Laudato Si', on the subject of climate change. This study guide is intended to assist individuals or small groups to read and digest Laudato Si’. It follows the natural divisions of the letter and recommends scriptural and worship resources to create a seven part study designed to encourage fruitful conversation. It is our hope that these conversations will lead to a surge of faithful action on the part of Christians from all traditions to care for our common home.

We celebrate the use of creative diplomacy shown in the Iran Nuclear Deal announced Monday that diminishes the threat of war and nuclear proliferation in our world. We applaud the Obama administration for not walking away from the negotiating table, even though many in our country cry for a rejection of the deal, which would surely lead to violent conflict.

Update on Colombia Accompaniment: Tension and Threats

The situation in Colombia is very tense right now. The now long-running Havana-based peace-talks between government and FARC had made significant progress, including the establishment of a truth commission, but the talks are in a very fragile state after cease-fires broke down. There are new signs of de-escalation of violence; our prayers for peace are more than welcome.

Pastoral Response Letter to Charleston

We could look at this event and call for more gun control, we could call ­­­Dylann Roof mentally ill and monstrous, but as we turn to God in prayer asking for God’s transformative peace, we name what this event truly exemplifies—a culture of white supremacy. Our country’s history of slavery and genocide continues to shape all of us today, imposing trauma and violence upon people of color’s bodies and nurturing internalized superiority in white people. Knowing that all of us are dehumanized in this reign of white supremacy, we pray for God to empower each of us to tear down this idol and declare God’s reign in the struggle for freedom.
