A Lenten Experience of Scripture, UMC Social Principles and Antiracist Action to Build Beloved Community:
Each Sunday during Lent, the sermons we hear will be more of a study, that is, an opportunity to deepen and grow our faith during this holy season of preparation for Easter.
We will begin each week's study with Scripture followed by exploring United Methodist Social Principles, learning from the witness of United Methodist ministries around the world, and reflecting on how God is calling each of us to faithful action in the face of evil forces that seek to divide and demean the human family. While this evil has many names, we name racism as one of these manifestations. This study is full of invitations to draw on each of the above resources as you navigate God’s calling to address the brokenness forged by racism.
During this season I pray that we will reconcile ourselves to God, in following in the way of Christ, by the power of the Spirit.
