Hundreds of Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Pagans and other religious followers from across Western North Carolina took to the streets of Asheville Thursday, March 16, in a peaceful march in support of undocumented immigrants anxious about round-ups and deportations under the Trump administration.
“By the time we arrive back at First C at 8 that evening, we’ve made a vow: We will commit ourselves to continuing the work of the march — which for us is pretty straightforward: to care for our country and our democracy by caring for the human beings who inhabit it.”
‘Hope. In the end, that’s George Bailey’s true gift to Bedford Falls — and the gift that Asheville’s churches bestow upon our own community. In this time of difficulty and turmoil, as we confront a new reality, could there be anything more relevant?’
While there are as many approaches to environmental stewardship as there are churches dotting our region, more and more local faith communities are investing time, money and effort to align their buildings and practices with their spiritual commitment to caring for creation.
