A Statement from Ministers of the Muscatine Ministerial Association on the Occasion of New Beginnings and Transitions

Muscatine Ministerial Association
We are a voluntary association of clergy in and around the Muscatine area working to promote Christian peace and unity in our community.

Muscatine Living

In the wake of the events of January 6, the ongoing pandemic, and the inauguration, the Muscatine Ministerial Association share this community pastoral message. It is also available as a video on the Ministerial Association Facebook page.

We live in dangerous and uncertain times. On January 6, our capitol building and democracy itself came under attack, and the pandemic continues to cause untold suffering and disruption.

Now more than ever, we need to come together, in a spirit of peace and truth. As people of faith, we pray for peace and we value truth.

The truth is that we now have a new president who was fairly, duly, and freely elected. The truth is that we all have a part to play in protecting one another from the COVID-19 virus. The truth is also that we are divided, but we do not have to be.

Together, as citizens, neighbors, and people of goodwill, we can come together despite our differences by condemning hatred and violence, promoting compassion and justice for all people, and seeing the good in others, even those different from us.

Romans, chapter 13, verses 8 and 10, say “Owe no one anything, except to love one another, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.”

Together we can bring about the peace that we pray for by loving one another and by doing no wrong to one another.

We invite all of Muscatine, along with people everywhere, to join us in praying for our democracy and for all the world. And we ask for all of us to take it upon ourselves to be lights of hope and healing, and for all of us to do our part to live the truth that out of many, we are one.
