Matthew 25 Task Force
The ruler will say to those on the right, ‘Come, you blessed of my Abba God! Inherit the kindom prepared for you from the creation of the world! For I was hungry and you fed me; I was thirsty and you gave me drink. I was a stranger and you welcomed me; naked and you clothed me. I was ill and you comforted me; in prison and you came to visit me.’ (From The Inclusive Bible)
Yes, we did it! After much discernment, we have decided to make the call of Matthew 25 into a PERMANENT ministry of the church. We can't wait to put our joy and our justice into ACTION!
PCUSA’S Matthew 25 Vision asks congregations to participate in at least one of these Focus areas:
Building Congregational Vitality–growing in spiritual strength & capacity for purposeful mission
Eradicating Systemic poverty–fighting the economic exploitation of people who are poor through laws, policies, practices and systems that perpetuate their impoverished status
Dismantling Structural Racism–confronting deeply ingrained racist systems and structures in our communities and country
THANK YOU to those who filled out our survey, to those who voted, to those who organized, to those who researched, to those who advocated, to those who prayed. We have accepted the Matthew 25 call and look forward to learning new ways to be part of the solution - to seek JUSTICE, and love KINDNESS, and walk HUMBLY with our God.
