Have you wanted to be more active in the important issue of racial equity and justice, but don’t know how or where to begin? The Prince of Peace Board of Directors has a place to start.

We believe God is calling us to listen, to understand and to act. We want to be bridge builders to racial reconciliation in our church, our neighborhoods and our world.

We pray for God’s healing love to open our hearts to empathy as we learn how to do the work of racial reconciliation. We invite you to join us in prayer and in action as we answer God’s call to love one another and become bridge builders on the journey to reconciliation.

We hope this initiative will only be the start of many other efforts of building bridges and answering our call to connect. If not now, when?

“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” – Hebrews 10:24-25

Vision: We are Called to Connect at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church and beyond. We are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus for ALL people. To that end, as Christ followers we want to be bridge builders in the journey of justice. POP For Justice exists to further this mission within the Prince of Peace community as a whole. 

Purpose: The purpose of this group is to continue our growth in pursuit of justice for all people. We know that justice is a wide topic and covers many areas of growth. Our primary focus as we begin will be on racial reconciliation, but we plan to broaden our scope of justice in the months and years to come.

Action Steps: We have enlisted the help of “Be The Bridge”, a national organization founded by Latasha Morrison, designed to promote and help with this important work. The infrastructure is already there, we just need to tap into it. We’ll start by joining the Be the Bridge Facebook group and the POP For Justice Facebook group for conversation, education and community. Prince of Peace leadership has also compiled a list of educational resources from podcasts, books, films, articles, websites and more:

In June 2022, Prince of Peace members voted to adopt the Care for Creation Covenant, as a response to our responsibility to live in balanced relationship with all of God’s creation, valuing and preserving our environment for the health and prosperity of future generations.
