Since the start of Lent, our Diocesan Commission for Racial Justice and Reconciliation has led online sessions of Sacred Ground, a film and readings-based dialogue series on race, grounded in faith. It was developed by The Episcopal Church as a part of “Becoming Beloved Community” and is designed to promote racial understanding, justice and reconciliation. Today, the class concluded with a final Session 11, centered around a theme of “Walk On: The Journey After Sacred Ground.”
The group from across the diocese, and even friends outside of our diocese, met today in Charleston at Grace Church Cathedral. Informal time with coffee, snacks and conversation was followed by the day’s session. after lunch, the group adjourned to the Cathedral for starts at a sending Eucharist. Many thanks to all on the Commission, especially co-chair Gail DeCosta and Tater Beak, who worked tirelessly to offer this important program to the diocese. Here are some photos from the Eucharist today, which was joyfully attended by Bishop Ruth Woodliff-Stanley.
