JPIC (Justice, Peace, and the Integrity of Creation)
JPIC provides a channel of expression for those concerned about the interface of their Christian convictions with social issues.
Action and Education
The Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) subcommittee of Adult Education operates with the goal of promoting stewardship of our community and environment through education and action.
The committee began in 1997 out of concern for the preservation of the environment and was called Eco-Cell. Since that time the committee’s activities and scope have expanded to include issues of social justice.
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Maker, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
-- Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi
