Repairing the Breach

The labyrinth is set of interrelated commitments around which we as Episcopalians may organize our many efforts to respond to racial injustice and grow a community of reconcilers, justice-makers, and healers.

The Province V team hopes to accomplish this by engaging leadership teams from multiple dioceses to become informed, inspired, and spiritually developed leaders for the future.

Our goal is not to create a “one-size-fits-all” model, but instead to use our own learning community to promote pathways for experimentation, deep sharing, and engagement of all groups of people with a rich diversity of backgrounds and experiences. We hope to provide Beloved Community Builders both with a variety of practical examples of Becoming Beloved Community work going on in our dioceses and with the tools they will need for adapting those examples to their own contexts.
