Join the Faithful Action group
July 31-August 1 Rev. Laurie Anzilotti will be leading a delegation from Holy Communion on the Jewish Federation of St. Louis‘s Take Action in Oklahoma trip, to protest the detention of immigrant families and children. We are joining other faith communities to stand p and say “not in our name.” There is still room on the trip, but you have to act fast.
April 2018 Interfaith Leaders Say No to Open Carry in Houses of Worship
From our Rector’s Pentecost Sermon:
We are making a difference
This is a movement for love, and we are making a difference. I have to take just a moment to say thank you to members of this congregation. Many of you made phone calls, sent emails, even wrote letters to our Missouri legislature this session. We were working against the so-called “guns everywhere” legislation, that would have expanded Missouri’s conceal-carry automatically into houses of worship, into college campuses, and in day cares. People could have come in with concealed weapons. You stood with religious leaders from across our State, and I heard yesterday that the legislature finished its session without passing that dangerous proposed law.
This is a small incremental step, but it’s an important one. If we are going to build on this win. If we are going to build a coalition of people of faith who will stand together for love, for justice. We also need to take time celebrate the victories, and we won this day. Justice won. Love won. When we continue to hear about shootings, while our gun laws still do not protect enough of God’s children, we have to celebrate the wins, and we have to build momentum. Thank you for continuing to stand for sensible gun reform. You won this one. Keep the faith.
