what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?
Below are social justice activities Rev. Tina has been passionately involved in through her ministry.
- No Compressor Station in North Weymouth (environmental advocacy)
This Compressor Station poses a serious threat to the health, safety, environment, and economy of the South Shore.
Spectra Energy, now known as Enbridge*, plans to build a 7,700-horsepower Fracked-Gas Compressor Station adjacent to the new Fore River Bridge in North Weymouth, which will adversely affect South Shore residents.
Rev. Tina has been a passionate advocate, speaker, educator, march/rallie attender and leader in summer prayer circles supporting the fight against the compressor station.
- Addiction Crisis
In both her current ministerial settings (Chaplains on the Way and Pilgrim Church), Rev. Tina has accompanied people through addiction issues. Being a witness to the pain and suffering caused by this horrible disease, Rev. Tina has become active in the Weymouth Substance Abuse Prevention Team and the Homeless and Addiction Collaboration in Waltham.
Chaplains on the Way is a ministry to people experiencing homelessness and poverty in Waltham, MA. At Chaplains on the Way, we go out into the streets and meeting places, bringing a ministry of spiritual care and hope. The people we encounter often are facing additional issues like addiction or mental illness. It is through this ministry that Rev. Tina's eyes have been opened and God's love shined wider in seeing that we are all God's beloved children.
- Food Insecurity
Each Thursday morning you will find Rev. Tina volunteering at the Weymouth Food Pantry. It may be surprising to some that in an age when our society is so rich that so many people are still left food insecure. These individuals are not just those who are unemployed, but also working moms and dads, grandparents, aunts who are legal guardians for their nephews and new immigrants.
