As a community of faith who finds ourselves in the crossroads of community, we have a long history in engaging social justice issues with work towards reconciliation. With our faith rooted in the local context of Wooster, Ohio, and a vision for a more just world, we are challenged to become more mindful through prayer, worship, conversation, and engagement as we continue the long and arduous task of dismantling racism.
