Transformed Nonconformity

The Rev. Rich Weyls urges us not to conform not to the world. Faith in God led midwives in ancient Egypt to disobey Pharoah’s command to kill infant boys. Christian faith strengthened Rosa Parks, a seamstress in Montgomery, Alabama whose refusal to move to the back of the bus led to her arrest and ignited the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Conforming to God in our times means saying no to racism, transphobia, and militarism, and yes to love, peace, and justice.
