There is no time like the present to address racial justice. In addition to the protests around the country sparked by the killing of George Floyd, June 17th will mark 5 years since the mass shooting at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC. These resources are provided for congregations by the ELCA in collaboration with ecumenical partners, to remember and advocate for racial justice.

From the resource: 

“Our relationship to the shooter as well as two of the slain reminds us of both our complicity and our calling. Together we confess that we are in bondage to the sins of racism and white supremacy and, at the same time, we rejoice in the freedom that is ours in Christ Jesus who “has broken down the dividing wall, that is, the hostility between us” (Ephesians 2:14). May God continue to guide us as we seek repentance and renewal, and racial justice and reconciliation among God’s precious children.”
