For the last several months a group of local, district, and agency leaders in the Church of the Brethren have been working on the 2022 Annual Conference’s call to study and act against the violence of racism. This committee, facilitated by On Earth Peace, comprised of members of the Southern Ohio-Kentucky district, and joined by Mission and Ministry Board staff, have outlined three objectives for the next two years:
- Connect people interested in and/or working on matters related to racial justice
- Study the teachings of Jesus so that we might love our neighbors
- Act to change racial injustices.
On March 14, you are invited to join us at a special online event to build relationships and to learn more about the work of this two-year study/action process to help the Church of the Brethren to stand with people of color.
Participants will gather using Zoom on Tuesday, March 14, to learn about and engage the dreams, the hopes, and the plan for next steps for the work in the next two years. We hope to connect and foster community with racial justice advocates, or those yearning to get involved, from across the Church of the Brethren. We want to hear examples of what racial justice education and action looks like right now where you are. Participants will explore the committee’s objectives and consider how we can all work together in 2023 and 2024.
