Justice and Peacekeeping

Our commitment to be disciples of Jesus calls us to, in the words of the prophet Micah, “do justice,” and, in Jesus’ words, be peacemakers. We are called to witness in the church and in the public square. Clarendon has been a prophetic voice in the church for many years seeking the full participation of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people of faith in the life, ministry and witness of the  Presbyterian Church.

We have taken that same commitment into the public
square working for marriage equality and supporting the work of People of Faith for Equality Virginia. We have also supported the work of Christian Peace Witness for Iraq in public witness for peace.

Our commitments have also led us to work and witness for
at-risk children and youth, for the empowerment of women, and in support of local affordable housing initiatives among other social justice concerns. Contact David Ensign with questions or concerns.
