Faith & Democracy Sunday 9/20/2020

Poeple in line to cast a vote.

Faith & Democracy 2020, a campaign of the Justice & Witness Action Network, calls on local churches across the Central Atlantic Conference to come together on Sunday, Sep. 20, for a time of worship and mobilization to call on voters to vote in the General Election.
As people of faith, our vote serves as a powerful tool to rid our communities of injustice, racism and inequity. There is no better time than now to be faithful to God’s call. The call to engage in public life. The call to fight for justice and liberation.
Join us for this important organizing moment in the Faith & Democracy 2020 campaign. Mark your calendar and prepare to receive the Faith & Democracy 2020 worship packet soon.

CANCELED: The Arctic, Climate Change, and US National Security: Reflections from the U.S. Icebreaker, Healy

Join Marisol Maddox to learn about the state of the Arctic- which is experiencing climate change at more than twice the global average- and implications for US national security. She will share experiences from her time with Coast Guard in the Arctic Ocean this past summer on the icebreaker, Healy, as well as the relevance of changes in the Arctic to the rest of the globe. 
Marisol Maddox is an Arctic analyst at the Woodrow Wilson Center, as well as a non-resident research fellow at the Center for Climate & Security, and a graduate student in International Security at George Mason University. Her research considers the security implications of an opening Arctic, the evolution of US strategy in the region, polar governance and geopolitics, climate change risk mitigation, and opportunities for enhanced international collaboration on regenerative solutions to shared security concerns.

UCC Higher Education Sunday

Sunday, October 30 is Higher Education Sunday.  In the UCC, this is typically the Sunday we lift up the institutions of higher education which are affiliated with our denomination.  In keeping with UCC’s commitment of welcoming all, the Potomac Association’s Higher Education Committee asks that churches remember all colleges today and especially those whose campus ministries we support.

The above words can be included in your bulletin as a way of raising awareness around Higher Education Sunday.  Additionally, the Higher Education Committee asks that if possible you include the prayer below in your worship on Sunday, October 30, 2011.

On this Higher Education Sunday, we ask your blessing on students, their professors, and college support staffs everywhere.  May leaders emerge from these institutions who are committed to peace, justice, and transformation.  We lift up the campus ministries that the Potomac Association supports at the University of Maryland, George Mason University, the Community Colleges of Northern Virginia, and University of the District of Columbia.


With hope and in hope,

Suzanne Adele Schmidt, Chair
