The Beloved Community Commission is honored to welcome The Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers to a webinar on Monday, October 16 at 7:00pm.

Stephanie Spellers serves as Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s Canon for Evangelism and Reconciliation. The author of The Church Cracked Open, and The Episcopal Way (with Eric Law), she has directed mission and evangelism work at General Theological Seminary and in the Diocese of Long Island.

She recently contributed the foreword for Peter Jarret-Schell’s book, Reparations: A Plan for Churches. The book “shows Christians how to make the work of restitution a reality by honest fact-finding and truth-telling, substantive and sustained engagement with those to whom reparations are owed, clear statements about what reparations are, and focused action to begin the work.” Canon Spellers will discuss the importance of this reckoning in the Episcopal Church and will answer questions. The event will be an important lead-in to our vote on an atonement resolution at the Diocesan Convention on October 28.
