Dear NCIPL Leaders, Supporters, & Friends,
I wanted to personally reach out to each and every one of you today, to let you know that I am grateful for our faithful network and all that we do to make North Carolina a safe, healthy, and wonderous place for all.
My colleague Joelle Novey has offered us these words:
Our prayer right now is to find a rootedness deep in what is good; that we will be like trees planted by the water, fed by Spirit and the ever-present promise of redemption. We pray that we will have the clarity to be fierce warriors for the truth: that every human being is a child of God, not an object, not less than, sacred and beloved and deserving of — requiring our — regard and protection.
As we continue to move forward towards building an inclusive climate adaptation & resilience building movement, we are truly stronger together. We must explain to ourselves and our children that although we do not always understand how the Universe works, we still trust in a love beyond our imaginations. Although we might not always know how to address our challenges & challengers, we must continue to believe in our hope-filled positive visions for the future.
Thank you, for who you are and what you stand for – yesterday, today, and forever more.
Power to the Peaceful,
Susannah Tuttle, M.Div
Director, NC Interfaith Power & Light
