Open Hearts—Open Community

In response to God's call, we,
the congregation of Robertson-Wesley United Church,
declare our commitment to opening our hearts and our church family
to all people in our community,
regardless of sexual orientation, age, gender,
differing abilities, ethnicity, or economic circumstance.
We recognize that many people's lives continue
to be devastated by hatred, prejudice, and inequality,
therefore, as a compassionate and caring spiritual community
we will stand with those who are adversely affected
by injustice, alienation and oppression.
