At diocesan convention in Hannibal, one of the keynote speakers was the Rev. Charles Wynder, in his role as racial reconciliation officer from the presiding bishop’s staff. He spoke about Becoming Beloved Community, the church’s long term program from racial reconciliation and healing. We’ve made two episodes from this talk, part one is the context in our churches and in our communities that sparked General Convention to ask for this resource. In part two, Chuck unpacks the “labyrinth” symbolism as it relates to conversations and actions around racial reconciliation in the Becoming Beloved Community materials.
It really helps to have a copy of the BBC materials in front of you as you are listening to part 2. Here are those links:
- Becoming Beloved Community Where You Are: A Resource for Individuals, Congregations and Communities
- Becoming Beloved Community, Commitment and Plan
