Light the Night for Workers Rights Vigil
“We call upon this place of business to repent and be redeemed, to turn from selfish and greedy ways to a way of business that benefits all – guests, workers, managers, corporate executives and investors.
I stand and speak to remind us all that the choices we make and the actions we take in this life, on this earth, are of ultimate concern. The way we live—as individuals, families, businesses, societies and nations—matters to God. God cares. God cares, intensely, about justice and righteousness in the workplace. God judges the unjust; God judges the greedy corporate executives and business managers who treat their employees unjustly. The Word of God calls out:
Do not heap up for yourselves piles of profits to satisfy your greed; rather, hear and heed
the voice of the prophets who speak the truth of God’s reign of justice for all.
We call upon this place of business to repent and be redeemed, to turn from selfish and greedy ways to a way of business that benefits all –investors, corporate executives, managers, workers, and guests.” – Pastor Petersen at the boycott Hilton vigil
