MeckMIN promotes interfaith collaboration to foster understanding, compassion and justice. We envision a community that lives by the highest values and core virtues of its rich faith traditions and respects the dignity of every person. MeckMIN values the core virtues of our rich faith traditions - our members being anchored in their belief in God, the Divine, the spiritual. We value the worth and dignity of all people - finding common ground through respecting and affirming all humans. We value relationships - recognizing that our spiritual and human relationships are even more important than the causes we address. We value the diversity of our community - enriching our lives as we learn from one another’s racial, ethnic, cultural, and faith understandings. We value peace - believing in the importance of peace within each person, our community and our world
MeckMIN encourages interfaith dialogue among congregations in order to uplift and empower the many common beliefs and values we share as well as to better understand and respect the differences among our faith traditions. We affirm compassion as our most central value by facilitating interfaith service projects, especially tending to the needs of the poor, disadvantaged, and marginalized. We promote action towards justice, healing, and peacemaking consistent with our interfaith work with respect to the diversity in scriptural values among our member congregations.
