The Common Good

Prayer of the Day: You are there

You are there, O God, when a baby cries. You are there, O God, when someone dies. You are there when they love and do your will -- You are there when they fight and hate and kill. You are there and you love them, though they do not care though they laugh at and mock you, you are always there. You are there in the darkness, in the light you are here, your presence brings hope - so why should we fear? Adapted from a poem by Fr Roger Lesser

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
