United Methodists seek racial justice

 
 

The United Methodist Church sponsored a full-page advertisement in The New York Times on August 16, 2017 to proclaim the church’s position seeking racial justice. The page directs readers to the website www.umc.org/embracelove which quotes Romans 12:21: “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”  The page states, “We recognize racism as a sin and seek to eliminate it. As followers of Christ, we embrace love and affirm all persons as equally valuable in the sight of God and therefore work toward societies in which each person’s value is recognized, maintained, and strengthened.” There are links to stories, resources, and tools for you to learn more about the issue of racism and ways to advocate for the fair treatment of all people.
