Becoming Beloved Community
We are living in unprecedented times, confronted with a pandemic which has exposed injustice and racism long present but often ignored. As Episcopalians, we promise in our baptismal covenant to work for justice and peace, and respect the dignity of every human being. The work of acknowledging and deconstructing racism is part of our mandate as Christians.
If you have been moved by the events of recent weeks, you may wonder where to go from here. Our Becoming Beloved Community group is creating opportunities for St. David’s to learn, pray and act in these tumultuous times and beyond.
The BBC team welcomes the opportunity to learn, pray and act with you to work toward God's dream of justice and peace for all people.

Becoming Beloved Community Course
Our Becoming Beloved Community team is dedicated to sacred conversations about learning about and dismantling racism. We are offering a five week small virtual group course which will begin on Thursday, July 16 at 7 pm and continue on Thursdays through August 13. The class will provide opportunity for honest conversation in the context of our faith, along with resources and readings. If you would like to sign up for the class, please email Rev. Mary Kay at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you join us.
We are creating a list of opportunities to act in ways great and small - in protests, demonstrations, walks, public forums in our own area. We’ll share what we know. If you know of events taking place, please forward the information to BBC@sdlife.org.
BBC is starting a subgroup to explore public policy and ways in which St. David’s can be an effective agent of change at local, state and national levels. We will keep you posted about this group as it develops.
