Diversity & Justice at St. Luke

Statement of Purpose

To better love our neighbors as ourselves, we commit to:

  • Educating ourselves and serving as a resource on issues creating divisions in our world.

  • Connecting and reaching out to diverse groups of people to build community relationships

  • Engaging in initiatives to help bring justice and equality to all our neighbors

The issues we intend to address include discrimination (in forms such as systemic racism, sexism, exclusion of people with disabilities, intolerance of other faiths and creeds, and prejudice against LGBTQIA+ folk), economic disparity, and the disproportionate effect of various ecological crises on marginalized groups.

Faithful Next Steps

We recognize that the work of justice and reconciliation is a journey and not a destination. As such we are committed to discerning and taking the next faithful steps in this journey. We acknowledge the harm done to marginalized communities by the Christian church at-large and seek to find healing and wholeness through personal relationship and community-building efforts.
