Imagine No Racism UNYUMC

The people of faith called United Methodists have not mobilized nor been proactive enough. While there have been pronouncements, calls to prayer, moments of silence and candlelight vigils, we have not moved rhetoric into action. Racism, white privilege and white supremacy which are inconsistent with the kingdom of God, are still the order of the day. To those viewing within and from outside, the Church seems to be complicit in perpetuating a culture fo racism and white privilege.​

The goal of “Imagine No Racism” is for churches and connectional organizations within the Conference to show a “real increase in mission and ministries that impact racial justice in churches and communities.”

Religion & Race UMC

General Commission on Religion and Race (GCORR) was formed to hold the newly formed United Methodist Church accountable in its commitment to reject the sin of racism in every aspect of the life of the church.

Discipleship Ministries and other agencies and bodies of the United Methodist Church are providing resources and guidance on how to become anti-racist individuals and churches. The Worship Team of Discipleship Ministries believes that such a change will not happen unless the whole process is bathed in prayer every step along the way. To that end, we will be providing daily prayers to help keep us all centered on the journey ahead. From Monday through Friday, a new prayer will be posted as personal devotion, to share in your small group, or for use in corporate worship.
