More Pictures from the Event
St. David’s February Pub Theology group explored the topic of forgiveness.
A large crowd gathered at Wednesday, November 30, at St. David’s, Bean Blossom to remove hate-filled graffiti defacing the church from earlier in the month, share a celebration of worship together, and conclude with a chili supper. The graffiti, including a swastika and an anti-gay slur, was found the morning of Nov. 13th. The cleaning event was called “Replacing Darkness with Light: Overcoming Hate with Love.”
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
By now you all know that St. David’s, Bean Blossom, was vandalized this weekend with a symbol of intimidation, language demeaning of GLBT persons, and praise of the President-elect. While it is deeply disturbing to be on the receiving end of such vitriol, it is also an opportunity to be very clear, with ourselves and the world around us, that we take seriously the commandment of our Lord to love one another with the same love God lavishes on every person – no exceptions.
We do not know who is responsible for the vandalism. What we do know is that the kind of language used during the recent Presidential campaign has emboldened some people to become openly abusive and insulting. Our option as faithful people is to be sure we don’t respond in kind. The Episcopal Church will continue to welcome all people, to seek and serve Christ in the world around us, to strive for justice and peace among all people, and to respect the dignity of every human being – even those who deface our buildings. Our buildings can be marred by anger and hatred – we will not allow our hearts to be defiled.
Our hearts and our doors remain open to everyone, as we pray for the wisdom and courage to remain faithful disciples of Jesus.
