For the People Voting Rights Reform Act

“We the people,” the often-repeated words that begin our nation’s constitution, remain both foundational and aspirational The Bill of Rights, those fundamental initial amendments define and protect rights and suggest that as circumstances and human experience and insight changes, our laws and policies also develop. Our very existence as a nation demands that we the [...]

Tech Safety Act

As we move into Lent, we reflect on who we are and who the Gospel calls us to be. This renewal demands an examination of attitudes and actions.

Words Matter-House Impeachment

Words matter.  The Incarnate Word, Jesus speaks unceasingly to us of God’s love.  We make vows; public officials begin their service with an oath to their office, convinced that people are as good as their word.  For almost two weeks, our nation has been immersed in a consideration of words and their consequences.  On January [...]

Christ The King

What would it be like to see Christ the King through Mary’s eyes? I imagine she sees her beloved Son as one who asks only that we accept and share God’s mercy. This is Christ’s gift to us and the gift he asks of us. In this time of protests, civic divisions, pandemic spread with [...]
