The PC(USA) has ratified the Belhar Confession for inclusion in our Book of Confessions. The Belhar Confession is the first from the global south to be included and arose out of the era of apartheid in South Africa. Video announcement here:
Text of the Confession:
If you’re going to care about the fall of the sparrow you can’t pick and choose who’s going to be the sparrow. It’s everybody.
The earth is at the same time mother,
she is mother of all that is natural,
mother of all that is human,
She is the mother of all,
for contained in her
aret he seeds of all.
The earth of humankind
contains all moistness,
all germinating power.
It is in so many ways fruitful.
All creation comes from it.
Yet it forms not only the basic
raw material for humankind,
but also the substance
of the incarnation
of God’s son.
~Hildegard of Bingen
