As a congregation, we stand with our many communities vocalizing a definitive “no” to the killing of George Floyd. We proclaim that this culture of police violence and systemic racism must be addressed. We look to the Purposes of our Church where we state that God’s creation benefits from our love lived out in the world. And so we continue to commit ourselves to advance human rights and further social, economic, racial, and environmental justice.
And we echo Isaiah 62.1, “We will not keep silent.”
Let us continue the work of our Racial Justice Initiative and other justice organizations and make our voices heard where injustice has been done.
Black lives matter.
Paula, Beth, and Seth
One way to support the communities affected by the unrest of our city, following the police killing of George Floyd, is to give to the Minneapolis Interfaith Relief Fund here.
