“Can you yearn enough for Church; can you yearn enough for Jesus.”
Posted by Winnie Varghese on Sunday, July 5, 2020
Bishop Kevin expresses his support of Kelly Brown Douglas, Stephanie Spellers, and Winnie Varghese, and encourages everyone in the diocese to read their message, “Speaking of Freedom,” and reflect upon this moment.
Here is their written statement.
In this video they read the statement and discuss.
Please, I urge you to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest. This is a call to the Church, to us Episcopalians, to BE CHURCH.
White Fragility Book
In this “vital, necessary, and beautiful book” (Michael Eric Dyson), antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility and “allows us to understand racism as a practice not restricted to ‘bad people’” (Claudia Rankine). Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue. In this in-depth exploration, DiAngelo examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.”
And a good article from Psychology Today – The Psychology of Rioting: The Language of the Unheard.
Here’s an Ascension and Pentecost at Home resource compiled by Rev. Beth Hoffman Reed and Rev. Peter Pearson for seasonal devotion.
