Charter for Racial Justice Facebook Page Propels Discussions in the Delaware-Peninsula Conference

The United Methodist Women Charter for Racial Justice may seem like a piece of paper to some. But, for many of us, it is a critical document that acts as a way to steer conversations among fellow citizens who wish to live in harmony with one another despite our differences.

As a member of United Methodist Women, I take this document seriously. So much so that as a member of my District Race Relationship team, I have presented it to my fellow team members as a resource to assist us in our efforts.

During a recent lunch meeting with my District Superintendent, we discussed the articles and posts that are made available on the Charter for Racial Justice Facebook page.

As the team meets, we regularly refer to current events that reflect the need for Racial Justice intervention by concerned individuals. These posts are a necessary tool for our discussions.

The posts provide insight into varied situations that reflect the need for racial justice to take a front seat in our interactions with one another no matter who we are. Rather than seeing this issue as "us against them," we should consider a "we are in this together" attitude. Only when we work together to bring understanding and peaceful resolutions will we find the peace and harmony that God designed for all.

The Charter for Racial Justice provides a framework of understanding for all of God's people. This understanding is crucial if we are to live together on this earth as God intends…as brothers and sisters in Christ
