A new Loudoun Clergy and Faith Leader Group has formed as A successor organization to the Loudoun Interfaith Clergy Group.
The group seeks to extend opportunities to strengthen collegial relationships with mutual support and trust, and to bring a broader and more inclusive set of faith-based voices into public and civic conversations in the Loudoun community.
The group’s monthly meeting are open to active and retired clergy, as well as congregational leaders from Loudoun County faith communities not served by clergy.
The Loudon Clergy and Faith Leader Group is led by Pastor Gerry Johnson, as chairman; the Rev. Jacquelyn Hollingsworth, as vice chairwoman, and Rabbi Amy Sapowith, as administrator.
“Our community needs to hear the clergy and faith leaders’ collective voice on issues of social justice, equity issues, and social change,” Johnson said. “We need to have a place where we can support our community as people of faith doing what we think God is calling us to do in this time and place.”
Johnson said the new group has updated its processes and structure to ensure the widest possible representation of the faith perspectives. “We welcome engagement with our local institutions like county and municipal governments, Loudoun County Public Schools and the independent schools in the area, higher education, health care, law enforcement, the Chamber of Commerce, and other civic organizations seeking partnership with the faith community,” he said.
