STATEMENT FROM THE DEAN OF ELY #BLACKLIVESMATTER

Published: 14 Jun 2020   updated: 11 Aug 2020

'The horrific murder of George Floyd has rightly caused a sense of outrage and revulsion around the world. This one action has called us all to look deeply at ourselves, at our society, at our work and at our church resolutely to root out the causes of all prejudice and hate that are around.

God created us all in his image and we are called to recognise that the structures that exclude because of race, wealth or status are not God-given.

May God give us grace to work for his kingdom of justice, mercy and peace and begin with ourselves by recognising our complicity in the inequalities of life and help us seek forgiveness for that.'

The Very Revd Mark Bonney
Dean of Ely
