Help ReconcilingWorks welcome the newest Reconciling in Christ (RIC) community: Queen Anne Lutheran Church (Seattle, WA).
Their welcome statement reads:
“Queen Anne Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Our faith community is a diverse and inclusive community welcoming people of all cultures, races, sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions. We commit ourselves to embracing the work of anti-racism, social and economic justice, and environmental care.
We are committed to the mission of proclaiming God’s love in Christ for every person.
We share in God’s Word, which shapes our faith formation, through a varied and diverse range of conversations that challenges both children and adults to appreciate the elusive but real presence of God in the world and to bring faith to expression in word and deed.
Called by Jesus Christ to love our neighbors as ourselves, we affirm that all people—regardless of faith or religious affiliation—should be treated with dignity and respect. We stand by our brothers and sisters of churches, synagogues, mosques and other faith communities and we condemn threats and attacks upon them. More broadly, we pledge to oppose bigotry, discrimination, and scapegoating within the Christian tradition and in the society around us in response to the embracing and inclusive love God has shown us in Jesus Christ.“
