Reminding Ourselves of our Social Principles

On Sunday, Jan 15, we heard read this wonderfully appropriate sermon by Martin Luther King, based on Matthew 10:16-23. Read it! You’ll be amazed!!

A Tough Mind and a Tender Heart

So, our week started with the sermon. Then on Monday we celebrated Martin Luther King Day and his wisdom and leadership during a crucial period in our nation’s history.

And then the week closed with the inauguration of a new President…

…and culminated with the participation of many of our members in the “Women’s March” in downtown Mount Vernon on Saturday, Jan 21.

And then on Sunday we heard a call…what does it really mean to be a disciple of Jesus Christ? What is this adventure to which we are called really about? Where to go? What to DO??

Whew!! What a week!!

One thing for sure, as United Methodists, we are called to take a stand for the rights of all women. Women’s rights include immigrants rights, civil rights, worker’s rights, reproductive rights, LGBTQIA rights, disabilities rights, and rights of the aging.

These are among the things that our United Methodist Social Principles call on all of us as United Methodists to take a stand for.  

So, maybe this is a good time to remind ourselves as to what those Social Principles actually say!!
