United against Racism Online Worship Service




Please join us on Sunday, June 14 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern time / 4:00 p.m. Pacific time for United against Racism, a special online worship service presented by the Black Clergy Network of The United Church of Canada. This will be a time of worship, prayer, and reflection on issues of anti-Black racism across our country and in our church. In worship we will lament, we will hope, and we will be reminded of the need to act against racism.

This service of prayer and reflection will be led by members of the Black Clergy Network and will be livestreamed on The United Church of Canada's YouTube Channel. You will be able to observe the service as well as chat and comment through YouTube by logging in with a Google account.

Please plan to join live and let others know by sharing this event on social media. Use the hashtags #UCCan and #UnitedvsRacism

Dear White People




In a new blog post, Rev. Dr. Paul Douglas Walfall calls on White people in the church to put their love into action to counteract racism. "Confronting racism is an act of love," writes Walfall, "When you love, you treat every person with dignity, as all people are created in the image of God."
