A Final Word

This will be my last blog post as Hillsdale United Methodist Church Public Theology Advocate.  I am moving to New England, but the team lives on. 

We will continue to meet the 2nd Sunday of every month, 11:30am, after worship service.  Our meetings are open to all and will start with a reading of sacred text (any text) that speaks to your heart about justice and service.  After a brief discussion about the text, we will discuss projects, ideas, and support each other through our personal networks – connecting into justice work that is in progress and groups seeking to do more.

In time, other Public Theology Advocates may pick up this blog and continue the quest to share with you, through this medium, the events and work of social justice advocates near and far.  If not, that is also fine, because there is a wealth of material in the existing posts.

Please look to the homepage of www.HillsdaleNJumc.org for announcements and invitations to join in local justice work.

Please continue to pray for us in the role of Public Theology Advocate as we take a stand for justice.  Respond to this blog, or contact me directly, with your thoughts, ideas, and concerns about social justice in the Pascack Valley region.
