Be Campaign

Do Justice. Be Kind. Walk Humbly.

As we head into the November elections, the Cathedral is joining with other churches from around the country in the BE Campaign, a call to action rooted in the prophet Micah’s exhortation to be just, kind and humble. 

Each Sunday in October, we’ll focus on a specific theme: Be just (Oct. 2); Be kind (Oct 9); Be humble (Oct. 16); Love your neighbor (Oct. 23); and the intersection of religion and politics (Oct. 30).
