UNITED METHODISTS STAND AGAINST RACISM
November 18, 1:00 p.m. Denominational Panel Discussion: The Doctrine of Discovery
December 9, 1:00 p.m. Denominational Panel Discussion: Systemic Racism in UMC
We recognize that racism and injustice are deeply embedded and vexing issues within our Church and our communities. We will take action, we will learn together, and we will continue to press forward in transforming our Church, our communities, and our world into the “beloved community.” How can we be silent and stand by when those whom Christ loves are killed by those who are supposed to serve and protect them? How can we further empower our clergy and members to “accept the freedom and power God gives you to resist evil, injustice, and oppression in whatever forms they present themselves?” Will we be among those who recognize Christ saying, “I can’t breathe” (Matthew 25:31-46)? We do not have all of the answers but we commit to take these next steps together. - from the Anti-Racism Commitment signed by Bishop Tracy S. Malone & the Extended Cabinet
