Proclaiming the Dream of Beloved Community
Church of the Redeemer has made a long-term commitment to the Becoming Beloved Community journey, a set of interrelated commitments around which Episcopalians may organize our many efforts to respond to racial injustice and grow a community of reconcilers, justice-makers, and healers. The labyrinth may be an even more useful image for engaging the vision. On the road toward reconciliation and healing, we move around corners and double back into quadrants we have visited before, each time discovering new revelation and challenge.
During Lent 2021, we will spend some time in the Proclaiming the Dream of Beloved Community quadrant, remembering our Baptismal Promise to proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ. With our offerings this season, we hope to ponder these questions together:
- How can we publicly acknowledge things done and left undone?
- What does Beloved Community look like in this place?
- What behaviors and commitments will foster reconciliation, justice, and healing?
Continue the journey with us.
