The African Methodist Episcopal Church Council of Bishops has invited congregations of the faith community to join in a “Day of Confession, Repentance, Prayer, and Commitment to End Racism,” on Sunday, September 6.
In recognition, Belmont UMC will host a discussion on racism and reconciliation, led by Rev. Marilyn Thornton, in the chapel, at 9:15 a.m., during the Sunday school hour.
The African American Episcopal Church Council of Bishops has requested places of worship to focus on racism as we are reminded that “out of one blood, God created all of us to dwell together in unity”.
Rev. Thornton is an ordained clergy member of the Tennessee Conference of The United Methodist Church. Rev. Thornton serves as Campus Minister/Director of the Wesley Foundation of Fisk University and Lead Editor of African American Resources at The United Methodist Publishing House. Rev. Thorton has led conversations and lectures on racism and reconciliation.
