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.
