Letters from our Bishops
Last week, many bishops from across the Southeastern Jurisdiction of the United Methodist Church wrote a letter to the jurisdiction as a whole addressing the racial disparities in the United States. There is a letter from the white bishops of the Southeastern Jurisdiction as well as a letter from a Leonard Fairly, a black bishop in the same jurisdiction. We highly encourage our congregation and others to read these letters and learn how we can stand up against racism in our country.
The council of bishops have also released a letter calling on all Methodists to “name the egregious sin of racism and white supremacy” and that it is time to “use our voices, our pens, our feet and our heart for change.” We also highly encourage you to read this statement as well and learn how the Methodist church is actively working to combat racism.
