– 2018 Year of Lamentations: The Diocese Laments its Role in Slavery
At last month’s 241st Diocesan Convention, the Diocese passed a resolution proposed by the Reparations Committee to begin a Year of Lamentations, beginning January 2018. The Year of Lamentations will center around an ongoing study of our Diocese and its history of the involvement in slavery in its old and new incarnations.
Without recognizing a problem and lamenting it, there can be no repentance, no recognition of the need for justice, no healing, no repair, and ultimately no reconciliation. Over the course of this year, the Reparations Committee will have opportunities to express our lamentation, with the awareness that it is the first step toward repentance and reparation.
