Acknowledging and remembering that we are situated on the traditional land of the Nacotchtank and Piscataway people, and on the land on which enslaved African people and their descendants labored and lived, we gather together in worship. May the words of our mouths, the meditations of our hearts and the actions of our hands point the way toward a more just future. May the memory of those whose love and labor went before inspire us to create a path of greater joy and justice for all who will follow.
River Road has a rich history and spirit of community, but we know that this kind of community doesn’t happen overnight. It happens in ways big and small, quiet and out loud, prolonged and steady. Join us as we explore the ways we build community in our hearts and lives everyday, how we can nurture the community that we’ve co-created, and how we can share this community with the larger world.
