The Anti-racism Training model of the Episcopal Church, Seeing the Face of God in Each Other, is designed to make us all more aware of how society’s racist past still haunts us today. Through self-examination and sharing our stories, we come to learn more about how our behavior affects others, and how our society, institutions and churches affect how we think and feel about others.
The 79th General Convention of the Episcopal Church in July 2018, re-affirmed the necessity and importance of anti-racism training for the lay and ordained leadership of The Episcopal Church and the importance of engaging in ongoing spiritual formation and education focused on racial healing, justice, and reconciliation as part of our Church’s commitment to Becoming Beloved Community.
