Why have we formed?

WHY HAVE WE FORMED?

We have grown weary and discontent with what we see as a failure on the Christian church’s part to protect and speak up for the marginalized.  We are sadly aware that the Church has often contributed to the prejudices of society and defended the status quo with exclusionary practices and judgemental statements.  Such acts cause harm to all involved and misrepresent the very Jesus we claim to follow.   Therefore, we are responding to God’s call to practice love and inclusion, to speak truth to power, and to make God’s Dream our reality.
