This Lent, our Region VI Community is invited into a journey to commit in new ways to becoming Beloved Community and growing loving, liberating, life-giving relationships across the human family of God. This program will explore four interrelated commitments, like quadrants of a labyrinth. We will focus on one quadrant each week during our Lenten series.

  1. Telling the Truth: Who are we? What things have we done and left undone regarding racial justice and healing?

  2. Proclaiming the Dream: How can we publicly acknowledge things done and left undone? What does Beloved Community look like in this place? What behaviors and commitments will foster reconciliation, justice, and healing?

  3. Practicing the Way of Love: How will we grow as reconcilers, healers, and justice-bearers? How will we actively grow relationship across dividing walls and seek Christ in the other?

  4. Repairing the Breach: What institutions and systems are broken near us? How will we participate in repair, restoration, and healing of people, institutions, and systems?
