Since last fall, Our Saviour’s Council has been discussing the issue of racism. Racist incidents, both locally and across the country, have led us to wonder how we might best respond. The Council Statement for Consideration below is a step in that response. It is grounded in God’s call for us to love one another as God has first loved all people.
As you read the statement, you may have questions or comments. Please email those to firstname.lastname@example.org. All responses will be shared with the Council and with the team being created to continue work on the issue of racism.
As you read the statement below, you may wonder how to become further involved. The team is working on opportunities for discussion, learning, and action. If you would like to be further involved in the process, please respond to email@example.com.
We pray for our congregation and community as we seek to respond to all people with God’s love.
Pastor John Gerike
