Faith and Society Update - June 2020
Welcome to this month’s Update full of news and resources for your church.
We have all been very aware of the disturbing and heartbreaking situation in the USA over the past week, beginning with the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, which has been indicative of deep-rooted injustices across our world. Please take time to read the response from our General Secretary Lynn Green along with some further reflections from Baptists. In addition, two prayers of lament have been written and can be shared widely.
Lynn calls us to ‘seize this moment and take some giant leaps forward in terms of becoming the kind of Kingdom Movement that God is calling us towards’ and so we commend to you the new ‘Just Aware’ training resource which aims to raise awareness of prejudice, discrimination, racism and its debilitating impact on the people with whom we live and work. We are hoping to pilot this online in the next few weeks and then it can be delivered on request to groups/churches around the country. Details will be published on the website shortly.
