West End United Methodist Church

As we enter into this special season of Lent, our focus is on Micah 6:8, specifically its call to mercy, justice, and humility. We believe God is calling us to both acts of charity or mercy and acts of justice. 

Charity addresses immediate needs in front of us, the type of work an organization like Room in the Inn does by providing a night of rest and food for people without housing. 

Justice work means creating the legal and systemic infrastructure that provide opportunities for folks to flourish without needing acts of charity. This includes advocacy against laws that criminalize homelessness, laws that encourage gun reform,  laws that eliminate the possibility of executing someone who is innocent. In Nashville we have the opportunities in abundance to do both. 

Over the next 40 days, there are numerous ways you can live into this calling, and we have found several opportunities we can engage in as a community of faith. So, grab a copy of Praying With Our Feet by Lindsey Krinks, and come here her lead us in coversation at our First Wednesday on March 6. Also check out the different ways to be involved and register to participate. To make sign up easier for you, we’ve created a Lenten Mercy and Justice Hub on our website.
