Leaders call on Episcopalians to heal ‘pain of racial injustice, division’

pope-quote-racism[Episcopal News Service] The leaders of the Episcopal Church’s House of Bishops and House of Deputies March 12 issued a letter “to welcome sisters and brothers in both Houses and ultimately all Episcopalians to join us” in the ministry of racial justice and reconciliation, as called for last summer by General Convention in Resolution C019.

“The pain of racial injustice and division has wracked our church and the many communities where we both proclaim and embody the gospel of Jesus Christ,” they wrote. “Our collective prayer and action can begin to heal what is broken and nurture the Beloved Community that is God’s dream for all.”

The text of the letter follows in English and Spanish.
