The 3 Great Loves campaign of the UCC is an opportunity for all of us to express our Love of Neighbor, Love of Children, and Love of Creation by working together to address the inequities in our world. This is a 2-year initiative, and the UCC is providing resources for and seeking stories of how we are living out God’s love in our world. Stories can be shared at www.ucc.org/3greatloves, or on Facebook, or on Instagram and Twitter using #3greatloves in the post.
For 2019, the UCC printed a desktop calendar called “Just Act,” a daily action calendar for creating a just world for all. Every Sunday the actions for the coming week will be on the bulletin board by the Love of Neighbor poster. Use these actions as a resource for your ideas and actions about making a Just World for All.
Here are some highlights from the February calendar:
Reflect on the ethnic heritage of your family; what strengths and limitations have you inherited? How does your heritage shape you? Advocate for safety of those that are homeless in your community. Write notes to family and friends, celebrating God's love, and yours. Write a letter to the editor of your local media outlet on a justice topic important to you. Take a risk for the sake of justice: show up, step up, speak up! Take deep, prayer-filled breaths: Fill your heart and your words with wisdom. Start a social media practice of responding thoughtfully and prayerfully to highly charged, political invective.
