"Finding Our Way After Ferguson"
A Special Dialogue with the Dean
This Sunday, November 30, 2014
The Grand Jury decision in Ferguson, MO has sparked multiple reactions and stirred-up deep-seated feelings. We have felt them here in Buffalo, NY. There is a need for dialogue about what we've all experienced as we have witnessed the peaceful protests, violent responses and frustrations. One discussion alone is not likely to make much of a difference but might be the start of some resolution, reconciliation and healing in our own city.

The Very Rev. Mike Kinman, Dean of Christ Church Cathedral in St. Louis, MO, sent an impassioned message to the deans of all cathedrals in The Episcopal Church with the following plea:
This is not just about Ferguson or St. Louis. Deep divides of race and class touch every one of our cities. It might look different in different places but it is there. And I know you know that and probably already are addressing it. Right now, St. Louis and Ferguson have become the identified patient for American racism. And that will not heal us here and it will not heal our nation. I am hoping you can help do something about that.
Will you take one Sunday in Advent and talk about Ferguson and your city?
That's all I'm asking ... that you join us...and have just one event during Advent where you have a conversation about the issues Ferguson has raised and where those issues of race, class and the oppression of God's children are present in your community.
I responded, "Yes, Mike, St. Paul's Cathedral in Buffalo, NY joins you."
Will you join me?
