Build the Beloved Community With Us

Posted · Add Comment

“ISAAC shows the willingness to do what has never been done and to embrace the unpopular to address issues that have not been meaningfully addressed before. ISAAC has an unwavering commitment to build a better community.”

– Addis Moore, Northside Ministerial Alliance President and Mt. Zion Baptist Church

“In the scriptures we read that a threefold cord is not quickly broken. (Ecc. 4:12) When clergy, government officials and people from all walks of life join together with a powerful faith and stance for justice, we create a new more equitable system.  ISAAC is a strong and vibrant catalyst for positive, powerful, change in our community.”

– Rev. Joslyn Mason, Unity of Kalamazoo

“ISAAC is important to me because it is a place where communities of all types can come together to put our faiths into action.  The faith background or tradition may differ but the work unifies us as one faith community, working to make life better for those around us.  It is the definition of the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world).”

– Rabbi Matthew Zerwekh, Temple B’nail Israel

“We teach and preach love and justice.  With ISAAC, we are able to act in support of these values, make a difference, and create a more just and more loving Kalamazoo County community. Our partnership with ISAAC has taught us how to be strategic, effective change-makers who are dedicated to creating the beloved community.”

– Rev. Rachel Lonberg, People’s Church

There are more of these powerful statements from leaders of our member congregations and organizations, in our new brochure.
