Five excellent essays on anti-racism Jul 29, 2007
There are five authors of essays in this book: "A Dangerous Book the Bible" by Frederick Houk Borsch, "Baptism: Liberating Sacrament of Identity and Justice" by Fredrica Harris Thompsett, "Eucharistic Reconciliation" by Michael Battle, "Race and Reconciliation: Writing a New Ending to an Old Story" by Bishop Steven Charleston (Choctaw), and Racism and Anti-Racism in Congregations: Building Multiracial Communities" by the editor, Sheryl A. Kujawa-Holbrook. All of these relatively brief essays reexamine living out ministry as authentic anti-racism work. Thompsett's essay on baptism is especially illuminating in examining the Episcopal Church's understanding of its baptismal covenant and the inclusivity of the sacrament. The notes are extensive and there is a wonderful list of resources on anti-racism work at the end of the book. The Rev. Jayne Oasin, Social Justice Officer for the Episcopal Church, adds a succinct and prophetic introduction. This is higly recommended to any individual who seriously desires to undertake the work of anti-racism.
