“To do righteousness and justiceProverbs 21:3
is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.”
We at MHS express our profound sorrow over the senseless deaths in recent weeks of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. Once again, we are reminded of the many examples of racism and discrimination we continue to see in our communities. We also hear the legitimate frustration over a decades-long failure to reform police practices, and lament the ways that additional violence has occurred.
We recognize the deep pain and frustration of Black Americans caused by years of systemic injustice. We stand with our brothers and sisters and unequivocally proclaim that Black lives matter.
We commit to working toward a more just society by providing resources to our members that can help us work together long-term to undo the structures of systemic racism once and for all.
