During Lent we'll dive into this important book by the Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers, who serves on the staff of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry as the Episcopal Church's Canon for Evangelism and Reconciliation. Led by Stephen Shaver and Daphne Vernon.
About the book:
A global pandemic and once-in-a-generation reckoning with white supremacy—on top of decades of systemic decline—have spurred Christians everywhere to ask who we are, why God placed us here and what difference that makes to the world. In this critical yet loving book, the author explores the American story and the Episcopal story in order to find out how communities steeped in racism, establishment, and privilege can at last fall in love with Jesus, walk humbly with the most vulnerable and embody beloved community in our own broken but beautiful way.
