In compliance with a request from Bishop Klusmeyer, the vestry of Zion Episcopal Church agreed to the expectations outlined in the Seven Steps to Racial Justice. In the spirit of these steps and as we are in Black History Month, I invite and encourage you to reflect on our shared community history, our church’s history, and family history. Perhaps begin your reflection by reading Martin Luther King’s Letter from A Birmingham Jail. For me, there is a timelessness to this letter that calls me up short and challenges my perspectives on culture and the Church. This is especially true considering that King was responding to a letter ("A Call to Unity") signed by two Episcopal Bishops, among others, criticizing King and his associates.
