Urge Your US Representative to Support the RECLAIM Act!

Because the West Virginia Council of Churches supports dignified work opportunities as well as restoration of God’s creation, we invite you to sign a petition to our West Virginia US congressional representatives, encouraging them to support the RECLAIM Act (HR 2156). If passed, this Act will clean up abandoned mine sites, as well as revitalize local communities and economies. 

As Christians, we have a calling from God to be stewards of the Earth and be good neighbors to all who live on it. Please sign now to support the RECLAIM Act. Find the petition HERE.

Psalm 24:1 “A Psalm of David. The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein” 

A year of the Lord’s favor

West Virginia turns 155 years old today. WVCC Executive Director, the Rev. Jeff Allen reflected on Isaiah 61 this morning at the Interfaith Service at the state cultural center in Charleston:

“The year of the LORD’s favor is an invitation to dream, to trust, to love, and to care, to know that all things are in God’s hands.”

Dr. Bob Harrison wrote this prayer for West Virginia that was read this morning as well.
