Working for Justice and Equality
But let justice roll down like waters,
and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream. -- Amos 5:24
As United Methodists, we believe that God has given us principles for how to live in a community. Central to Jesus’ teachings, life, death, and resurrection is the Great Commandment: we must love God and love our neighbors as ourselves. (Matthew 22:35-40; Mark 12:28-34)
All Are Welcome Here
We have engaged in some studies to better understand how we read scripture faithfully. Here are some resources we have used and discussed.
From the progressive compatablist perspective:
Faithful and Inclusive: The Bible, Sexuality, and the United Methodist Church, a video series from Pastor Rob Fuquay
Holy Love: A Biblical Theology for Human Sexuality by Dr. Steve Harper
From the conservative compatabalist perspective:
We at Tuskawilla are committed to the work of dismantling racism. “As Jesus’ people, we begin with the knowledge that all persons are created in the image of God. We seek to name the injustices within the Florida Conference of The United Methodist Church and work toward healing and unity." This community group meets on Zoom at 4 pm every second Sunday.
