A Million Christians for Social Justice: Are You In?

Yesterday, I shared our prayers and discussions about possibly launching A Million Christians for Social Justice, "to bring us together to fight injustice and inequality, to fight hunger and hopelessness, and ultimately, to love and nourish all the souls that are a part of God's creation -- and to do so in the name of Jesus." I asked for your honest feedback to help us discern this important decision; we need your prayers, comments, and commitments.

So far, we have received more than 800 comments! We heard "I'm in!" over and over again. Thanks for all those responses, and we'll be carefully reading and processing them in the days to come. If you did not leave a comment, I invite you again to let me know if you would join such a network and movement of faith and action. Would you be one of a million voices connecting, speaking, and acting in a common witness? Click here to leave a comment and tell us your ideas.

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)
