Help ReconcilingWorks welcome the newest Reconciling in Christ (RIC) community: Bethel Lutheran Church (Auburn, MA).
Their welcome statement reads:
“Following the Way of our sovereign Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ, ALL ARE WELCOME at Bethel as we heartily affirm that each individual is a much-loved child of God, recognizing everyone as called to become as one body (in community), yet with many members in support of the whole, in witness to creation of the sacrifice and atonement of the cross.
By the power of the Spirit we seek to humbly walk together, united for equity and justice, with people of every race, ethnicity, creed, class, age, gender, marital status, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. In this gift called life we are blessed, justified, empowered and increasingly sanctified by grace through faith.”
