If you haven’t yet heard of it, the Episcopal Public Policy Network is a grassroots network of Episcopalians across the country dedicated to carrying out the Baptismal Covenant call to “strive for justice and peace” through the active ministry of public policy advocacy.
The EPPN is a part of The Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations located in Washington, DC. The actions, programs, and ministry of the Office of Government Relations are based entirely on policies approved by the Church meeting in General Convention or by the Executive Council.
This Lent they have a series posted to their blog entitled, Engaging the Beloved Community.
Each week of Lent the EPPN will feature video, written reflections, or voice recordings from Episcopalians engaged in the work of racial justice and reconciliation.
In a recent video discussing racism and reconciliation, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry said, “We who follow Jesus are in the business of seeking to transform things from the way they are into something closer to the way God dreams them to be.” During this Lenten season, we invite you to walk in the ways of justice, peace, and reconciliation and explore what it means for The Episcopal Church to transform our world into the Beloved Community.
Each week, they will send an email to your inbox that frames the reflection and includes a link to the full reflection on their EPPN Lenten Blog .
