As a Matthew 25 church, Harvey Browne Memorial Presbyterian has committed itself to the work of dismantling structural racism. We join with congregations across the country in committing to the work of anti-racism, examining the persistence of racism within our country, our church communities, and ourselves as individuals. Beginning with the Justice Week of Action (August 25-30), we are invited into a broader season of discernment throughout this fall, exploring not only how racism has impacted our local communities, but how it influences us as individuals. To this end, we as a congregation are invited to commit ourselves anew to God’s vision of a Beloved Community through prayer, education, and action.
The following list is provided as a resource primarily to white Christians who are wanting to dig more deeply into the work of anti-racism. It is offered not only as an opportunity for education, but as a prayerful commitment to our siblings of color – our siblings in Christ, made in the very image of God.
(The following list was adapted from Eddie Moore’s 21 Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge.)
