Why I March

WomensMarch 2018_header.jpg

This Saturday, January 20, at 10 a.m. I will join women, girls, men, and boys for the Houston Women's March as it begins on Sabine St. and I hope you will come with me.

I am marching to demonstrate my faith that Christ is revealed in every human being, especially those who are most marginalized and powerless in our society. Each of us deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. This includes my undocumented neighbors.

I am marching because I believe that the kingdom, the power, and the glory belong to God. God is first. America, though I love her, is not.

I am marching because I know that the only way that our elected officials will embrace the common good, above consumerism and military hegemony, is by citizens who vote demanding a different set of values.

I marching because we will be encouraging others to register to vote and to put their franchise where their hearts are in the next election. This is not a partisan movement; it is about civic engagement. This land is our land...including our First Nation brothers and sisters, those who were brought to this country against their wills, and those who are longing for full citizenship.

I will be in Pecore Hall on Saturday making a sign/poster to carry and then will carpool from the Church to the March. I hope to see you too. RSVP form and itinerary is below.
