In our vision statement, we affirm that “Cedar Lane is a community where love works. Together, we explore the eternal, nurture community, and build a more just world. Together, we dare to embody beloved community.” After some serious discussion, we have decided that we can best live out our vision on March 24 by attending the March for Our Lives rally, standing in solidarity with those affected by and in fear of school shootings and gun violence, and therefore have decided to cancel this year’s Seminary for a Day, which was to be held on the same day, during the same time. We do not want to make you choose which event to attend, and feel that this is an important moment nationally that we all need to make a priority.
We hope that you will attend the rally with us on March 24, and we will keep you updated on plans for a Cedar Lane contingent as they develop.
