We are faced with another painful decision from the Supreme Court. The first has made it easier to carry a weapon in public spaces. The second takes away the right of every woman to decide reproductive health care. Both are life and death decisions that will negatively impact many, many people. This may be a time of tears and bitter disappointment for you. It may also be a time of anger and frustration. It is, in either event, a very sad time for our republic.
I commend to you the message from our Presiding Bishop. Bishop Curry has expressed grave disappointment and acknowledges the impact this reversal will have in the lives of the poor.
Because we follow Jesus, we do not give up hope. And because we promise to “uphold the dignity of every human being,” we will not accept the injustice created by this act. May God give us the wisdom needed for the path ahead.
Faithfully in Christ,
