Over the past month GOFAD has posted several blogs featuring various perspectives on institutional racism in the USA that have triggered protests worldwide. In these portrayals there is a tendency to miss important voices of support for the Black Lives Movement emanating from church leaders. The Bishop and clergy at the Washington National Cathedral in DC for example have been in the forefront of championing the cause in sermons from the pulpit as well as in a series of symposiums "Honest to God" on Wednesday evenings engaging audiences from around the World.
This week we bring to your attention a sample of the vibrancy of the Church's message and the passion and purposefulness that it brings to this discussion. I commend this 18 minute video of a sermon by The Very Rev Randolph Marshall Hollerith, Dean of the Washington National Cathedral. It is a condemnation of the racist system that has persisted for over 400 years in the USA and more particular, an appeal to White Americans to make the change.
