Preparing for Action

Rev. Tan Moss presents 
“Preparing for Action” 
With Carole Hawkins and Claudia Marshall as Worship Leaders

What does “putting faith into action” mean for those of us living in the Jacksonville area? In the year of COVID, vulnerable neighborhoods are now facing rising crime. We need criminal justice reform for communities of color and compassionate treatment for people dealing with mental illness. Every faith tradition calls its people to serve justice. When we show up together, we become a powerful force for good.
