WASHINGTON, DC -- People of faith all across the country will join a diverse group of ecumenical Christian leaders for a non-partisan prayer ecumenical Christian service hosted by and including our many diverse faith communities and traditions--live streamed across the country linked to #PeaceWithJustice.

In the face of mob violence and political insurrection, we as followers of Jesus are called to be peacemakers. He didn’t instruct us to merely be peace lovers who call for unity and healing, but rather to act; and do the things that make for peace. Faith leaders know, as Pope Paul VI said, “If you want peace, work for justice.”

President Donald Trump incited a violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol yesterday. His supporters invaded and desecrated the Capitol building, threatening the lives of all Capitol Hill personnel and members of Congress. With Trump flags and Christian symbols, along with the Confederate flag, the angry mob forcefully attempted to stop the process of confirming the Electoral College vote.

The Sojourners Board of Directors has appointed Rev. Adam Russell Taylor as the new president of Sojourners.

Joe Biden has been declared the winner in the United States Presidential Election. The election is over and the people have spoken. We want to congratulate President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris and are hopeful about their commitment to both healing and change.  As Christians we are called to love our neighbors and our enemies and prioritize protecting the most vulnerable while advancing the common good. This is a moment in which both political and faith leaders must find the courage and resolve to put our country and the common good over political idolatry and naked ambition. Leaders must stop making reckless statements about election fraud without evidence that continue to stoke partisan and political flames. We are calling for unity in this moment.
