We're watching and will keep you up-to-date throughout the week with the latest

Be of Good Cheer: Remembering Dr. Robert Meneilly

Let it be made clear from the outset that this is a sermon on religion, not politics. What is good about religion is good for the republic, and good about a republic is good for religion. However, we believe fervently in the American way, which stands for the separation of religion and state. 

To love our neighbors as ourselves requires tolerance, but it also requires looking out for the best ultimate welfare of both state and church. It means being humble, not self-righteous.

Getting closer to justice: George Floyd's murderer convicted

The guilty verdicts in the trial of George Floyd’s murderer yesterday brings some comfort to those who cared for him, and those who know his murder to be just one in a long line of injustices borne by Black people in America. But as others have said, justice in this case would mean George Floyd would still be alive. The Mainstream Coalition stands in support of those who continue to fight for that justice, against the inequalities endemic to our society and institutions. We pledge to continue to listen to and boost the voices of those who experience racism in the work we do to engage all Kansans in their political future.
