We are devastated and crushed that our beloved physical sanctuary at Middle Collegiate Church has burned. And yet no fire can stop Revolutionary Love. We thank God that there has been no loss of life. We know that God does not cause these kinds of tragedies but is present with us and to us as we grieve, present in the hugs and prayers of loved ones. We’ve been worshiping and doing our ministry in digital spaces since March and that’s what we’ll be doing tomorrow.

This isn't just an election: It's a moral referendum. What kind of country do we want to be: One fueled by bigotry and hatred, or one grounded in revolutionary love? God calls us to do everything in our power to build a world where everyone has healthcare, where every person is fed and housed, where migrants are enthusiastically welcomed and we honor our relationship with creation.

We are Middle Church– a multicultural, multi-ethnic, intergenerational movement of Spirit & justice, powered by Revolutionary Love, with room for all. Following in the Way of Jesus’ radical love, & inspired by the prophets, we are called by God to do a bold new thing on the earth.

The census isn't just a crucial political tool—it's a moral declaration: Every person counts. Every. Person. Regardless of your immigration status, gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, income, age, or ability: You count so deeply to God. And we want to make sure government counts you as well! The census is crucial for determining political representation, federal funding and more, so it's imperative that it's accurate.
