@ Hands of Christ earlier this year

This Sunday, we’re glad to welcome Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg to Westminster for the 11:00 worship service.  One of the things that impresses me about our mayor is his commitment to racial reconciliation in Charleston.

From Scripture and the Constitution of our denomination we declare with a clear and unwavering voice:

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.  John 13:34

We believe that Christ’s work of reconciliation is made manifest in the church as the community of believers who have been reconciled with God and with one another…that this unity must become visible so that the world may believe that separation, enmity and hatred between people and groups is sin which Christ has already conquered, and accordingly that anything which threatens this unity may have no place in the church and must be resisted.  Confession of Belhar (1986)

I’m glad the Mayor is joining us to share a testimony of love and share his gifts on the piano as well.  Join us!

On the side of love,

Pastor Daniel
