We Resolve: All Saints on Gun Violence Prevention

“Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?” The answer to this question from our Baptismal Covenant is “We will with God’s help.” One way we live out that commitment as a congregation is for the Vestry (the governing Board) to take official stands on issues of justice and peace and in support of the dignity of every human being. We do that through the process of adopting a resolution. One of those resolutions — adopted in 2013 — concerns Gun Violence Prevention.

The Supreme Court and Immigration Relief Programs

The Future of Undocumented Immigrants in the U.S.

Thomas Saenz in the Rector’s Forum on Sunday, June 26, 2016:

“This is an odd way of commemorating our upcoming Independence Day — to not do your job. This is an epidemic that does not begin or end with the Supreme Court, it is an epidemic that threatens to bring all of our government to a grinding halt.”

“Getting Lost to Find Your Way”

Sally Howard on Sunday, June 16, 2016:

“Jesus was determined to dismantle all that stands against love. Nothing can contain this unbridled spirit of love — and the empire powers feel its threat.”

The Supreme Court and Immigration Relief Programs: The Future of Undocumented Immigrants in the U.S.

Sunday, June 26

The June 23rd split decision by the Supreme Court — failing to act on President Obama’s executive actions on immigration and leaving in place a lower court ruling pending further litigation — once again highlights the desperate need for comprehensive immigration reform in our nation. And there is no one better to unpack the implications of today’s ruling – along with the wider issues of immigration reform – than our Forum speaker this Sunday: MALDEF (Mexican American Legal Defense & Educational Fund) President and General Counsel Thomas A. Saenz.
