Dismantling Racism: A Service of Lament

June 26, 2020 by The United Methodist Church

Join leaders of the United Methodist Church in a service of lament, repentance, communion, and commitment here.

May participating in this service offer you space to lament, repent, commune, and commit to the work of antiracism. To quote Council of Bishops President Cynthia Fierro Harvey, "Dear Life-Giving God, we your people are in this for the long haul.”

May it ever be so.

Our resolve must be different.

“My prayer is that we have finally reached a tipping point. My hope is that when the protests fade and the marches slow that our will as a church to truly eradicate the scourge of racism won’t dissipate but grows even stronger.”
