by Mary Cole-Duvall | March 2009

Thanks for Jim Wallis’ thoughts in “A Pastoral Strategy for Hard Times” (December 2008). Our church is gearing up to assist more folks in our church and local community.

Thanks for Jim Wallis’ thoughts in “A Pastoral Strategy for Hard Times” (December 2008). Our church is gearing up to assist more folks in our church and local community. These activities help us keep our eyes on God by opening our hands to our neighbors. Fear is much more manageable when we work together. Blessings to you for faithfully speaking to our current time.

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)
