No Hate Yard Signs

“We love because God first loved us. Those who say, “I love God,” and hate their brothers or sisters, are liars; for those who do not love a brother or sister whom they have seen, cannot love God whom they have not seen.” – 1 John 4:19-20

 

Let’s Take a Stand Against Hate

There is so much hate in our world today. As Christians, we are called by God to love others. We are also called to take a stand against hate and the harm it causes so many people in our communities. We do this by educating ourselves, by amplifying the voices of those who have been harmed by hate, and by using our own voices to speak out against hate.

At Manchester UMC, we extend God’s love and grace to ALL people (see our Welcome Statement). In that spirit, Manchester UMC is offering yard signs featuring the above image for display at the homes of those who wish to take a stand against hate in our communities. These vibrant signs are one-sided and made with corrugated plastic to withstand wind and rain and come with a metal sign holder for placing in your yard.

The three hearts on the sign represent three groups of God’s children who have been recipients of significant hate and harm and to whom we extend God’s love and grace: LGBTQ+ individuals, transgender individuals and persons of color.

The cost of these yard signs is $5 each.  While supplies last, these signs are available for purchase at the Information Center on Sunday mornings or by emailing Rev. Ali Fields.

If you have any questions, please email Rev. Ali Fields.

In God We Trust

Throughout the centuries, “trust in God” has been a frequent theme in our prayers, our hymns and our sacred songs. It is certainly a biblical theme as well. There are 182 references to “trust” in the Bible, and most of these refer to us placing our trust in God. In America, our money even proclaims “In God We Trust.” I invite you to join us for worship this weekend as we take a look at Psalm 105 and at the refrain, “In God We Trust.” Does that mean that we expect God will “fix” everything? What about free will? How should we really trust in God?
