As we continue our commitment to on-going Anti-Racism work, individually and as a congregation, here is one thing you can read this week, one place you can donate or give this week, and one concrete action you can take this week:
Friends, just like COVID-19, confronting racism is a marathon not a sprint. But as Pr John has pointed out, this race has already started, and we need to keep on going.
