I read this article on Supreme Court nominee, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, from Religion News Service with great interest. I appreciate the fact that she talks about the significance of her faith without feeling the need to hold the contours of that faith up for public scrutiny.
We live in a day when faith is far too quickly politicized and weaponized. Witness the question Senator Lindsay Graham asked Judge Jackson, “On a scale of 1 to 10, how faithful would you say you are?”
In our Youth Group Zoom on Monday evening one of our high school seniors said it well. “I am glad to know that she (Judge Jackson) has faith. I don’t need to know much more than that. Her job is to be a judge, not a faith leader.”
Prayers for us all this week as we live our faith,

Dear Faith Communities,
In partnership with the ICE out of CA Coalition, we are excited to invite you to the Faith Action Hour for the VISION Act (AB 937) tomorrow Wed, March 23, 7-8pm via zoom, to provide a space for the faith community to learn about how to stop ICE transfers in California, hear from directly impacted community members, and take action as the faith community.
All people of faith are welcome! We will be reaching out to key Senators and Governor Newsom. Senators Dodd, Glazer, and Eggman are of particular interest in Northern California, so please encourage faith communities in those districts to join us.
