At this time, when people of Asian descent locally and across America are being victimized by racist words and acts, we denounce this and all racism as sin. We decry all words, acts or policies that perpetuate racism and pray that those committing such acts realize their wrongdoing. Join us in standing in solidarity with our Asian neighbors. We pray for the victims, that they feel the support of the majority of the community and country and that witnesses of such acts speak up when they encounter injustice.
At Prince of Peace Lutheran Church and the House Next Door in Princeton Junction, we value the richness of God’s creation and offer a radical welcome to all people, appreciating our common humanity and our differences. We do not view diversity as a barrier to unity. We recognize and will challenge dynamics that create fear or barriers to participation and equity in our church and/or society. In this time of uncertainty and fear, we pray for unity.
