A Weekend of Prayer & Sacred Resistance

January 20-22, 2017

At All Saints Church we will enter this new era in our nation’s history with prayers for our country and a recommitment to sacred resistance. We will stand in resistance to the systemic evils that oppress and marginalize any member of our human family – including but not limited to racism, sexism, nativism, homophobia, anti-Semitism and Islamophobia. Grounded in our baptismal promises, our resistance to public policies that perpetuate those evils is how we put our faith into action in the world.

Please join us for some or all of these events and opportunities over Inauguration Weekend as we work with our Interfaith allies and community partners to continue to be the change we want to see in our nation and our world.
