Justice & Peace Report
Coordinator: The Rev. Linda Watkins, [email protected]
Report of the Province III Peace and Justice Ministry Coordinator:
I am brand-new to this position, and so my task over the next year is to learn my way around! My plan is to do a lot of networking over the next few months and see what is being done as far as P&J Ministry, meeting people involved, and discerning an appropriate plan of action (possibly a P&J conference for Province III). I will be attending the Synod meeting in November and the Province III meeting in May. I will also be doing some networking at Ecumenical Advocacy Days in Washington in April and possibly even at General Convention in July. I do know that in Central PA we have an active Social Justice Network that is charged with supporting a wide variety of Peace and Justice ministries. I am also JPIC Animator for the Third Order, Society of St. Francis, and there are initiatives underway there in working with the Franciscan Action Network on Environmental Justice. My hope is to be able to share these things widely in Province III.
