Becoming Beloved Community NOW

Racial justice and healing leaders and practitioners across The Episcopal Church gathered July 28-30, 2020, to build community, craft strategy, and equip each other for action during a series of Becoming Beloved Community NOW online gatherings.

Convened by the Presiding Officers’ Advisory Group on Beloved Community Implementation, the three gatherings focused on three urgent themes: Truth, Justice, and Healing. Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and President of the House of Deputies Gay Clark Jennings offered prayer and reflections throughout the sessions.
