The theme this year is "Being an

Inclusive Church...and not an exclusive club".

The Church is universal and embraces all ethnicities. Racism is a sin; a sin that divides the human family, blots out the image of God among specific members of that family, and violates the fundamental human dignity of those called to be children of the same Father.

Prayer: ‘Loving God, we are all wonderfully made in your image. Help your world to see you in each face, to see that each person has value, each person has a heart, and each person has a name. We thank you for all your people who work tirelessly to bring racism to an end.’ Amen.
