Adult Forum - Canon Angela Shepherd, "Becoming Beloved Community: The Episcopal Church’s Long-Term Commitment to Racial Healing, Reconciliation, and Justice – Unpacking the Contents for Today"

The Rev. Dr. Angela Shepherd, Canon for Mission, will discuss “becoming beloved community,” which was released in 2017 as a response to a long-term commitment to racial justice. Our denomination has made overtures in the direction for several decades with spotty success. Canon Shepherd will explore the four areas outlined in the document: telling the truth, repairing the breach, proclaiming the dream, and practicing the way of love. We can all do more to help dismantle the sin of racism as it exists in our day. Much has already been accomplished, but the work is not finished.
