"He has shown you, O man, what is good;

And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justly, To love mercy,

And to walk humbly with your God?"
Micah 6:8 NKJV

 

 

 

 From the National President:  

 A Statement on Racism  

 

  “It is urgent for Christian leaders to speak into this racially charged moment of our nation's history. Silence in this matter can be interpreted as complicity with a demonically empowered status quo that prefers one kind of human over another. Please do not opt out. Call us all not only to repentance and faith but also service. Challenge us to ask the Holy Spirit to empower us for mission. May God help our churches become beacons of healing, serving our deeply divided communities in the Name of Jesus Christ.”

                                                                      Bishop Gregory O. Brewer

                                                                                     National Chaplain

 

 

We are living in sad times. An underwhelming sadness clouds my days. It seems like déjà vu — one more time. I have lived through the segregation in the 1950’s, sit-ins in the1960’s, integration, marches and Black Power in the 1970’s, and the glass ceiling of corporate America in the 2000’s. As a nation of peoples, we have now come to a time when men and women of color are in danger for simply living. Say his name! George Floyd! Running while black! Sleeping while black! It is easy to slip into hopelessness and anger while our nation wrestles with the sin of racism. I could choose to live in fear, but I choose differently. I choose to turn again and find joy in my God.

“O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”

 How to Be An Antiracist  

   

Ibram X. Kendi's concept of antiracism reenergizes and reshapes the conversation about racial justice in America--but even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. Instead of working with the policies and system we have in place, Kendi asks us to think about what an antiracist society might look like, and how we can play an active role in building it.

 Racial Equity Glossary  

 

  

In talking about issues of race, a common vocabulary is essential to avoid misunderstandings and misinterpretations. Words often have different meanings to different people, based on their experiences. The purpose of this glossary, which is a work in progress, is to help avoid such misunderstandings. Not everyone will agree on the definition of every word; but everyone should have a common understanding of how words are being used in particular circumstances.

 White Fragility  

 

  

In this “vital, necessary, and beautiful book”, antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility and “allows us to understand racism as a practice not restricted to ‘bad people’” (Claudia Rankine). Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue. In this in-depth exploration, DiAngelo examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.
