LEWINSVILLE RESPONDS TO MATTHEW 25 INVITATION

In Matthew 25:40 Jesus teaches that we serve Him when we serve the most vulnerable, “the least of these,” who are members of His family. Increased racial injustice and of widening economic disparity in our country reveal there is work to be done.

At its September regular meeting, Lewinsville’s Session voted to join several hundred other Presbyterian churches undertaking this work as part of the “Matthew 25 Initiative” of the Presbyterian Church (USA) for dismantling structural racism.

In the months ahead, Session will be sharing with the congregation a framework for considering how we might collectively or individually build toward greater racial justice and improved economic well-being for those most vulnerable among us. More can be learned about the PC(USA) Matthew 25 initiative HERE.

The “Matthew 25 Iniative” has been set to music in a new hymn, “Jesus Be With Us,” with text and tune by the Rev. Dr. David Gambrell, and musical accompaniment by Phillip Morgan. Read more about this hymn HERE. John Nothaft and three members of our Chancel Quartet perform this new hymn below:

In Matthew 25:40 Jesus teaches that we serve Him when we serve the most vulnerable. As a church, may we sing the text of this new hymn “Jesus, Be With Us,” and find inspiration to serve particularly disadvantaged groups, following the examples of  Martin Luther King Jr, as we strive to be drum majors of peace, justice, and righteousness in our own community.
