In this issue of the Saint Bartholomew Episcopal Church newsletter, read the Bishops’ statement from the Episcopal Diocese of Texas, get George Bush’s take on institutional racism, and see pictures from Houston’s march for George Floyd.
Here is an excerpt from the Bishops’ statement:
We grieve for the most recent deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery. We hear the voices of people of color who live, daily, as victims of prejudice, contempt, and violence in America. We support peaceful protests. We speak out against the actions of authorities who tear-gas peaceful protestors. We reject the government’s removal of clergy from church property without cause. We reject the use of the Episcopal church as a political prop. We condemn destruction of property.
