Pursuing Love & Justice

Pursuing Love & Justice

Jesus calls us to live out all of his teachings. Love Mercy Do Justice (LMDJ) is a mission priority of our denomination, the Evangelical Covenant Church (ECC). To “Join God in making things right in our broken world,” we must commit to the hard but necessary work surrounding justice and reconciliation. We may not have all the answers, but we can no longer be silent. At PLCC, we are dedicating ourselves to justice and racial equality by…

  1. Highlighting God’s vision for the church and community through a sermon series on the book of Acts;
  2. Hosting book and film discussion groups;
  3. Engaging staff in the Intercultural Development Inventory and through pastoral cohorts on anti-racism;
  4. Encouraging we, the church, (students and adults) to learn about mercy and justice through the Journey to Mosaic or Sankofa;
  5. Emphasizing our continual call to prayer to recognize, repent, and renew our commitment to love mercy and do justice.

In addition, we have curated a list of resources with options to read, watch, and listen to a variety of voices…
