Toward Franciscan unity
TSSF, OEF, and SFO leaders
The Prelude to the General Rule of the OEF says, in part: "We shall strive to be living witnesses among all nations to the great truth that in Christ "there is no difference between Jews and Gentiles, between slaves and freemen, between men and women" (Galatians 3:28); that there are no barriers of race or nations in God's family. There is only the All-loving Creator, the Divine Redeemer, the one fellowship in the All-Wonderful Comforter."

Sisters and Brothers:
We had some absolutely wonderful discussions at chapter/convocation this year regarding the ministry of Justice, Peace, and Integrity of Creation. Out of these discussion emerged a renewed emphasis and rededication to JPIC ministry.
In an effort to help us define what JPIC is and what it is not, we (Bro. Craig Robert Miller and Sr. Katie Cook) your co-animators for JPIC ministry, wish to make some suggestions as to how you can become involved as Franciscans who are committed to work in the areas of social, political, and economic justice, world peace, and environmental justice.
