standing in solidarity

The Episcopal Urban Caucus stands in solidarity with all Asian Americans in this

time of increased violence and white supremacist murder. We recommit ourselves

to ending all forms of racism. We humbly assure our Episcopal Asian American

fellow parishioners and friends that the Caucus is with you in our struggle to

redeem a denomination which white supremacy has defamed and distorted the

Gospel message to love thy neighbor. The EUC has always spoken out against

systems, -isms, policies, and even our own communities when we, and the places

our churches are located have strayed from recognizing the face of God in each

other. This moment is no different. 

Understanding that we are all God’s children, created equally, we join our voices

with those that cry out in lament and anguish. Together we proclaim that these

overt actions of hatred must cease. We live in the hope that only God can give, that

one day all of God’s children will live with true equity and in peace.

Prayer for the Human Race BCP p.815

O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son:

Look with compassion on the whole human family; take away the arrogance and

hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in

bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your

purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in

harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
