Undoing Racism

For the past several years, members of our congregation have been engaged with Rendall Memorial Presbyterian Church in our Undoing Racism project. These efforts echo the growing national conversation within our denomination and beyond about the scourge of systemic racism in our country. -The Reverend Sarah Green, Associate Pastor for Congregational Life and Mission
The Presbyterian Church in Morristown stands in solidarity with our Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) brothers and sisters, the movement of Black Lives Matter, Diversity Day and the Diversity Coalition of Morris County, and our Undoing Racism ministry.

We are a Matthew 25 Church: Ending Racism & White Supremacy

“…when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you? …Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.”
— Matthew 25:44b-45

Devotional by Vern Verhoef on behalf of PCM’s Undoing Racism group.
Masks Not Required! These are strange words in today’s environment of Covid-19; however, important words in being and becoming the Beloved Community. In this broken world of polarizing messages and devastating violence, the work of “undoing racism” is critically important. As a participant in this initiative with the Rendall Memorial Presbyterian Church in Harlem, I have learned to listen with humility and have begun to strip off my masks of indifference, of comfort, of white privilege, of control, and of perfectionism. Often a painful process! Join us on this journey as we move toward addressing critical community issues in our own Morristown neighborhood. Grounded in the Spirit of Christ, the work continues. For additional information, please contact Sarah Galo.

He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)
