All Saints' Statement of Conscience
As members of All Saints’ Episcopal Church, we affirm our support for all people of color and diverse backgrounds. Many of us will never be able to understand the struggles for equality and justice in our nation experienced by our fellow brothers and sisters. We cannot presume to understand the extent of prejudice and injustice they feel every day. As 1 John 4:20 states, “If anyone says, ‘I love God,’ and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen.” Our faith and humanity require us to “do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with our God,” so our challenge in today’s tumultuous time is to turn these words into action. In this time of pain, fear, and unrest, we commit to listen with an open heart and hear your words, to watch with an open heart and see your pain, and to sustain and support our brothers and sisters with our voices, words, and actions.
We hear you, we see you, we stand with you.
We are your allies.
