Day 29: Make a Resolution for Love
Today is Day 29 of the Thirty Days of Love. Today’s action is to share photos and stories from your Thirty Days events, and make a resolution to stand on the side of love for the rest of the year. Click here for resources, family actions, and more!
- On Day 14, we asked you to sign-up to help us send messages of love to those affected by acts of violence. Over 119 of you registered, and we will give you another chance to join in next week when we announce the winning name for our response team.
- During Day 19, Ravi Ragbir shared his personal immigration story, and asked that we send messages to Congress asking for immigration reform that keeps families together. Over 1,156 messages were sent to Congress sharing your concerns!
- Christina Warner, from Shoulder-to-Shoulder, invited us to join her in a webinar learning how to respond to anti-Muslim bigotry on Thursday, Feb. 28. You can still sign-up here.
At our Standing on the Side of Love worship service, my own congregation, First Parish Cambridge, will present a Courageous Love Award to Tina Chery. Tina founded Mothers for Peace and the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute in Boston. After losing her son Louis to gun violence, Tina has dedicated her life to non-violence and is an inspiration to our community. We are also reading The New Jim Crow and our congregation is thinking deeply about how to respond to mass incarceration. We are planning a program at our church with interfaith and community activists to explore how to address this issue in Massachusetts.
I plan on standing on the side of love for the rest of the year, and beyond! What is your resolution to continue standing on the side of love in the next year? Click here to share it with us.
Also, please forward this message to your congregation, your friends, and community. We’ve grown our vibrant online community to over 30,000 people. Let’s continue to grow. Folks can use this link to sign-up for our email list.
Will you continue to stand with me?
