Advocacy


Do you believe that the voices of the marginalized are as important as yours?

Do we have a responsibility to speak out if we see someone bullied, harassed or accosted because of their religion, the color of their skin, their gender identity?

 

 

 
Members of Advent have wrestled with these questions.   As hate incidents increase both in Augusta and the rest of the US, Christ calls us to serve our neighbor; to give voice.  Our Baptismal calling includes ‘…striving for justice and peace in all the earth’. When looking to the ELCA, we can see that there is an advocacy ministry both at the national level, and at the Southeast Synod. These groups work to educate, change public policy and engage in difficult conversations.  Starting an Advocacy Ministry at Advent seemed essential both for us as members and for the community.  We meet the third Saturday of the month.  ALL ARE WELCOME!
