Greetings! My name is Carol Ann Davidson and I am the Board liaison to a new unified Social Justice Committee.
The past two years have been hard for many. It is easy to feel helpless given some of the challenges we are facing in the world. Working together, even in small ways, can help to bring a sense of purpose and integrity through living our values. It can also help to ease anxiety. Many of our congregants have expressed the desire to get back into the community and recommit to social justice work and your Board of Trustees agrees. It is time to begin again!
Prior to the pandemic, Cedars had a Social Action Committee that focused on community service and a Social Justice Committee that focused on education and outreach events.
At present, both committees have dissolved although Super Suppers continue to be supported by a few former committee members. The Cedars Board’s vision is to revitalize our efforts with a newly formed Social Justice Committee that will join together with the Faith Formation and Green Sanctuary Committee members to plan a year in which Cedars recommits to social action projects and social justice work on Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap.
If you are interested in learning more, please reach out to Carol Ann Davidson.
