The newly formed group, “Wichita Clergy for Equality” met last Thursday at Pine Valley Christian Church. Our guest was Kerry Wilks from the organization – Equality Kansas: The mission of Equality Kansas is “to end discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, and to fight for full equality and civil rights for all LGBT Kansans.” Kerry seemed very thankful for the interest of our new clergy group.
Amongst the needs of Equality Kansas is to know which clergy and which churches support their mission. This is very important as it can be expected that legalized discrimination bills (“religious freedom” bills) will be introduced again in this year’s legislative session. In the needs discussed at the meeting is the willingness of church members who are willing to make phone calls and write letters concerning legalized discrimination. Kerry will give notice to the churches as the need arises. If you are willing to make a phone call or write a letter please contact me or the church office so we can make a database and be in touch the most expeditious way as possible.
Remember to pray for justice in Kansas.
Grace and Peace,
