On behalf of the entire diocese of Olympia, Bishop Greg has signed on to a document – A Covenant to Root Out Racism – originally promulgated by the Bishop of Missouri, The Rt. Rev. Deon K. Johnson. It is a long, broad, and thorough document that bears study and reflection in order to enable effective action.
The new year, with our new interim in place and with our congregation prayerfully engaged in seeking God’s new direction for us, seems an ideal time to tackle such a project. If you are interested in participating in a group forming to study and discuss the Covenant, please contact Peach McDouall (at church or via directory contact info). For more information about the Covenant in our Diocese, see Bishop Greg’s statement at https://ecww.org/a-covenant-to-root-out-racism/
