YOUR MAGAZINE, to which I recently subscribed, is my first exposure to current events in more than 20 years, and my subscribing is the first "social action" I’ve taken in 53 years (well...that’s a little exaggerated, but not much). I continue my constitutionally inclined lifestyle of retired, solitary devotion. But now God seems to be calling me to peek out from under my rock. I do pray for our little planet, and I know that is no small thing. But you are helping enormously to direct my prayers from my "contemplative" place.

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)
