Service for Justice & Reconciliation
January 17, 2015
Saint Peter’s Church is a welcoming and diverse evangelical catholic communion. Sermons respect and reflect the rich diversity of this community, and rooted in biblical scholarship and proper distinction between what theologians call God's judgment and promise. This distinction has at its center the conviction that all people are upright before God on account of Christ alone.

The Service for Justice & Reconciliation, hosted by The Metropolitan New York Synod and organized by the Sent Committee, was an opportunity to stand together to call for peace amidst racial tensions in our city and nation. Ecumenical and interfaith leaders, including representatives from Muslim, Roman Catholic, Presbyterian, and Reformed communities, led a litany for justice while leaders from throughout our synod led prayers for reconciliation.
