Anti-Racism Initiative of the Cathedral of the Rockies
“I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:6
Last fall, a conversation began amongst church members and Cathedral staff related to art and stained glass, and images that could be barriers for all people to experience God’s love and healing and racial reconciliation in our places of worship. This conversation grew to unpack an even larger but perhaps more invisible justice issue – that of engaging in the hard conversations and the work of dismantling the unjust system of racism. We have assembled a lead team of church members and staff to design steps forward, so that in our place and in our time we are faithful to God’s calling in the restoration of a deep, sometimes invisible, broken foundation and system. We know there are no easy answers, but we believe it is faithful work, and worthy of the unfolding work Christ calls us into during our time and place. Work the Spirit beckons the church into.
