We pray together as a family of the faithful with the vision of a Church community that at its core upholds the full equality of all of its members. So that our daughters and yours may know radical inclusion and justice, equality without qualification, and an institution that transforms oppression into love without bounds.

  1. A Church that recognizes that all people are created in God's image and equally endowed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit for the common good.

    R: Let us build a Church for our daughters.
  1. A Church that celebrates the witness and contributions of our foremothers in faith – those in Scripture, those in our tradition, and those who walk with us today.

    R: Let us build a Church for our daughters.
  1. A Church that celebrates and promotes a spirituality that recognizes an inclusive God, beyond gender, and incorporates language that is inclusive in liturgy, doctrine, and pastoral practice.

    R: Let us build a Church for our daughters.
  1. A Church that takes a firm and proactive stand opposing all forms of exploitation and violence perpetrated against women.

    R: Let us build a Church for our daughters.
  1. A Church that advocates for social structures that support and sustain the basic needs of women including access to clean water, clean air, adequate housing, food, security, education, the workforce, political and social engagement, and freedom of movement.

    R: Let us build a Church for our daughters.
  1. A Church that works to dismantle oppressive structures and customs that disproportionately impact women creating inequality in pay, employment opportunities, development of public policy, and property ownership.

    R: Let us build a Church for our daughters.
  1. A Church that commits to reflect on its own participation in the oppression of women; to repent for unjust acts, systems, and teaching; and to renew structures of leadership to be more inclusive of the People of God at every level.

    R: Let us build a Church for our daughters.
