Becoming Beloved Community

Becoming Beloved Community is the Episcopal Church’s Long-Term Commitment to Racial Healing, Reconciliation, and Justice” (BBC). This vision document and related resources invite Episcopalians to approach the lifelong journey of racial healing as if walking a labyrinth that moves through four quadrants:

  • Telling the Truth about the Church and Race
  • Proclaiming the Dream of Beloved Community
  • Practicing Jesus’ Way of Healing Love
  • Repairing the Breach in Society and Institutions
