The death of George Floyd at the hands of the police in Minneapolis and the subsequent protests on both sides of the Atlantic, have again drawn public attention to the ongoing evil of racism, which does so much harm throughout the world. The churches of the Independent Methodist Connexion add our voice to all who speak out against racial injustice and violence. Racism is an affront to God. His justice and love for all His creation demands we speak out at every opportunity.
Black lives, as do all lives, matter to a loving creator God who abhors all racism and prejudice. As unique as we are, we were all made in His image and it is incumbent upon us, the church, to stand together and say this has no place in our society in 2020.
