Churches Uniting In Christ

Reconciling the baptized, seeking unity with justice

CUIC President Issues Call to "Tear Down Strongholds of Captivity"



"The ministry of Jesus the Christ was about challenging unjust systems that held individuals and marginalized communities in bondage. He empowered his disciples to touch lives and tear down strongholds of captivity. He commissioned them to care for the most vulnerable in society and give witness to the reign of God marked by justice."


Rev. Robina Winbush, president of Churches Uniting in Christ, was recently quoted by Matt Ferner of the Huffington Post, reporting on a conference call on April 16th held by the Drug Policy Alliance. Winbush joined several Christian leaders in calling for an end of mass incarceration and the failed war on drugs. The article is available in full at the Huffington Post
