"I fully support a statement issued by the UMC Council of Bishops today condemning the senseless and apparently racist killing of Ahmaud Arbury in Georgia. It says in part, "Parents of Black children live in fear each and every day that they themselves or a member of their family will be the next victim as the pervasive culture of racism and white supremacy
grows each day." As a church, we have long condemned racism but we must do more to address it throughout our society. We can pray for Ahmaud's family but our prayers must result in actions."
Bishop Scott J. Jones

Everyone is looking at ministry in a different context and trying to find ways to maintain community. These resources can help.
