“I do not believe the Bible points to any political policy or action…I believe, at the most, the Bible (a) can frame questions in the public sector according to the will and purpose of God as that will and purpose have been discerned in the church in a long, interpretive tradition, and (b) can provide specific materials that can evoke and tilt our imagination in one direction or another.”-Walter Bruegemann (2013)

The Social Justice Advocacy Committee continues to raise a voice against the evils of hunger, poverty, gun violence, racism, ecological degradation, and other societal ills. We regularly urge our federal and state representatives, as they contemplate legislation, to consider those who are marginalized in our society as in Matthew 25. In collaboration with the Adult Education Committee, we sponsor adult education series to raise our awareness of the hiddenness of these ills on the affluent Main Line and in the nation and the world.

The Office seeks to translate the church’s deep convictions about justice, peace, and freedom into reality by advocating for the positions established by the PC(USA). The Office engages national legislators and their staffs to help clarify the moral and ethical issues at stake in public policy decisions. For example, advocacy can take the form of inquiring about programs that involve local law enforcement in enforcing federal immigration laws, contacting your legislators to urge them to take action on immigration, serving directly in partnership with local immigrant communities, and educating yourself on immigration issues. Be creative, prayerful, and discern how God is calling you to respond to the needs of our communities.
