As the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement, we dream and work to foster Beloved Communities where all people may experience dignity and abundant life and see themselves and others as beloved children of God.
All Saints’ of Austin recently commenced a journey of reconciliation of race, grounded in the belief that we are all created in God’s image and that our differences are to be valued and celebrated. For the past few months, a committee of parishioners has researched the history of the country, the state, community, the church and explored how race and injustice are woven into these. This is a path of discovery looking into where we have been, where we are now and ultimately in the words of Bishop Curry, “where we can and must by God’s grace, go”.
We seek to offer safe and trusting discussions to examine this history and its impact and move towards a loving, caring, respectful reconciliation that furthers education, self-awareness, and transformation. Imagine the possibilities, the creativity and the new horizons that occur in such a place.
The committee is looking for educational opportunities, open discussions, building trust and transparency to form the basis to embrace diversity, find confidence in sharing and experience real love.
This is not a journey that we take on our own, but is shared both locally and nationally in the Episcopal Church. We are on this journey together and we hope that you will join us.
