Statement on the sin of racism

Responding to recent events around race in our country

In light of the recent happenings in our nation incited by violence that begets violence, but rooted in the sin of racism, it's important that United Methodists and Lehman United Methodists know and affirm in as many ways as possible what our denomination teaches about such issues. Here's a link to the social principles regarding the social community to get you started. I pray it gives some insight to each of us as we think about appropriate and Gospel-centered responses - internally and externally.
