“Act justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8)
Micah Connection started in 2016 as a discussion group focusing on topics related to race relations. The group has since reconstituted and expanded its focus to include other social issues. There is a core group of about a dozen members, although the group invites anyone interested to attend meetings and participate in its activities.
In fall of 2017 Micah sponsored the well-attended SNL class “Crucial Conversations.” The three classes focused on issues surrounding gun violence, immigration and race. In February 2018 Micah held a brainstorming session and developed three focus areas: education, advocacy and relationship building (within the church and outside the church.) We also coordinated church members’ participation in the March for Our Lives (gun violence) rally and attendance at the recent Singing for Justice concert at St. James Presbyterian.
