It is in solidarity and gratitude that we stand with Congregation Beth Israel and the partnering organizations of Peace Together.

We stand for the values of diversity and love, not separation and hate. We stand for justice for all. Justice that brings peace. We stand for the presence of God that is often found in loving those who are different from us. In this presence we are strengthened to overcome our fears.

We stand in solidarity with those immanently effected by the hostility and tragedy of the hostage siege yesterday. The resources of the Grace Presbytery Disaster Response Team are being engaged to help address the trauma of these families and their loved ones.

We stand together!
