Actively Working for Justice and Restoration of All Creation

We believe that Jesus calls the Church to love all our neighbors by actively working to dismantle racism and other forms of injustice against marginalized groups, such as LGBTQI+ people, immigrants, and others. We recognize that our silence in the face of the oppression of others is complicity, and we confess and repent for the ways in which we have contributed to the suffering of others. Placentia Presbyterian Church commits to listening to the guidance of the Holy Spirit as we actively work for justice and the restoration of all creation.

This last weekend we were witnesses to two tragic events involving shootings. One across the country in Buffalo, NY.  The other down the 5 freeway a few minutes from us.  One a racially motivated attack on a black community.  The other a nationalist attack against a Taiwanese community.  Eleven of God’s children were lost to our world in these senseless and violent acts.

The following is a statement from the Co-Moderators of our denomination the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) in response to these events.  While it doesn’t propose a policy, nor do they speak for anyone but themselves, it’s important to hear other voices.  Their outrage should be our outrage.
