The Faith in Action Commission is calling all participants in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Oklahoma to make this a year of reconciliation. Our identity Statement is “We are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. We welcome all to the Lord’s Table as God has welcomed us.”
There are many opportunities to build harmony,
- Seek out another congregation to grow reconciliation with yours and plan events that would foster harmony. You could sing together or intercity churches could welcome rural churches and rural churches could introduce inter city residents to farms.
- Start a justice book club
- Tour the Greenwood district in Tulsa and learn about the Tulsa Riots.
- Take a field trip to the First Americans Museum.
- Research and experiment with what others have used successfully to build reconciliation.
Many activities can be done at little cost, but if you need financial help with your plan the Reconciliation Grant process opens for applications on March 1.
