Many of us at Heritage are beginning to use the word “resistance” when talking about the current American political situation. We’re sharing social media posts and emails about working within the system by contacting our legislators, showing up at Town Hall meetings, and signing petitions. Within our church walls Thane Thompson has set up letter writing stations so that we can simply and easily let our voices be heard. Nearly 100 Heritage people marched in Washington D.C. and in Cincinnati and even more marched in their hearts.
There is another way for us to resist hatred, bigotry, and racism. Teaching.
Did you know that every single lesson in our Religious Education program contains a segment titled “Faith in Action?” These segments offer concrete information and actions to help our children and youth recognize their own power and USE it.
Can you think of anything more powerful and important than teaching our children and youth to fight injustice?
