Help ReconcilingWorks welcome the newest Reconciling in Christ (RIC) community: Robeson Evangelical Lutheran Church (Mohnton, PA).
Their welcome statement reads:
“In response to the overwhelming love of God, we stand in awe of the wideness of God’s mercy. In faithfulness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, mindful of our Lutheran emphasis on grace, and rejoicing in the celebration of our shared baptismal journey, we welcome as members of our extended family all those who have ever felt excluded or harmed by the Church because of their race, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental ability, socio-economic status, national origin, or marital or family status.
As followers of Christ, and in obedience to his command to love, all members of Robeson Lutheran Church are compelled by the Gospel to seek reconciliation and wholeness in a world that is all too often an unloving place. Therefore, rejoicing in God’s abundant grace, we extend a special welcome to all. Whether you are a believer, a doubter, or a seeker; whatever your circumstances; we recognize you as a child of God and, in Christ’s love, we welcome you, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit we can work together to usher in God’s Reign of justice, peace, and mercy.”
