What does God require of us but to love mercy, do justice and walk humbly with God
The Nauset Interfaith Association is a volunteer association of clergy and lay leaders of some 20 member congregations on lower and outer Cape Cod. Our purpose is threefold: to deepen our understanding of each faith tradition represented; to provide mutual support and encouragement to each other; and to work together for the common good of our wider community, especially standing with the poor, oppressed and marginalized.

Lights of Liberty
Dear Nauset Interfaith colleagues and friends, A week from tomorrow on Friday July 12th across our country there will be hundreds if not thousands of public gatherings or vigils to call for an end of human detention camps in our country. ( see lightsforliberty.com ). There is plenty of room for dialogue and discussion about what is a reasonable policy for the USA consistent with our principles enunciated in our founding documents for immigration/refugee/asylum seekers. However, what is going on in human detention camps in our country right now is REPUGNANT to all that we seek to stand for in a country dedicated to " life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," and "liberty and justice for all."
Please remember in your prayers all those suffering because of their internment, especially the children who have died . the dead children include: Jakelin, 7 year old girl, Felipe,, 8 year old boy, Juan, 16 year old boy, 2 year old boy, from Guatemala, Carlos,16 year old boy, and a 10 year old girl from El Salvador, name not released.
I commend to your participation the Lights for Liberty event on the Orleans Town Common ( next to the Snow Library ) from 4 to 5:30 PM on Friday, July 12th. All ages welcome including children! There will be singing, speaking and a closing silent vigil as we remember those suffering in the camps right now, especially children. Bring signs and chairs if you can. Lots of parking at Nauset Regional Middle School next to the common.
