Racial Justice

Micah 6:8and what does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
We commit to prayer, education, and continued soul-searching repentance for racial justice. As persons of faith, we commit to sharing God’s love for all people. The diversity of people and thought is fundamental for Christian unity, and our prayer is for our community to come together to listen, to learn, and to develop new relationships.  We are working to restore justice and righteousness for all of God’s people.

Advocating Racial Justice

Addressing racial injustice has been a part of the Minneapolis ELCA synod and the ELCA in general for many years. The Minneapolis Synod added a resolution addressing racial injustice in 2016, and in 2019, Brenda Blackhawk was hired as a Congregational Organizer for Racial Justice. In response to the murder of George Floyd, the Minneapolis ELCA synod urged all congregations to have conversations about race and how they can take the next steps toward living in their Christian calling. Holy Trinity’s Racial Justice Committee held their first meeting in June of 2020.
