Good Friday was a Lynching

Jesus’ death was a state-sponsored lynching. Until we face that reality, we cannot face the truth of our faith and what God is calling us to in our current and local contexts. Join us this Friday at 10 a.m. ET as 7 Christian faith leaders, guided by the 7 last words of Jesus, share admonition and inspiration to continue the work of justice, calling for an end to state-sanctioned violence, excessive policing, and white supremacy.

Rev. Phillip Baber, The People’s Church of Jacksonville (Jacksonville, FL)
Rev. Dr. William Flippin, Jr., Assistant to the Bishop, Director of Evangelical Mission, Southeastern Pennsylvania Synod of the ELCA (Philadelphia, PA)
Rev. Dr. Susan Smith, Crazy Faith Ministries (Columbus, OH)
Rev. Dr. Tim Ahrens, First Congregational Church (Columbus, OH)
Rev. Dr. Jack Sullivan, Jr. Ohio Council of Churches (Columbus, OH)
Ms. Adrienne Hood, Mother of Henry Green murdered by Columbus police in June 2016 (Columbus, OH)
Minister Christian Watkins, National Council of Churches (Washington, DC)
