GOD IS WITH US!
Embracing our diversity, we are searchers for justice, truth, and beauty here and everywhere, aware of and responding to community need.

Derek Chauvin Convicted of Murdering George Floyd
On Tuesday, Derek Chauvin was convicted of murdering George Floyd. He was convicted on all 3 charges brought before the court; he remains to be sentenced sometime in the near future.
This conviction will not bring George back, nor will it single-handedly end systemic racism or state violence. But it is a real step of accountability, especially considering how rarely police officers are even charged with crimes after using deadly force.
This conviction is a victory for justice, although we know it is one step in a very long journey. The last few weeks have brought news of police violence and intimidation to people of color across the country. At St. Augustine's, we commit to being an active ally in anti-racist work. As always, if you have thoughts, concerns, questions, or ideas about this work, please contact Rev. Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org
Bishop Mariann has released her own statement on the conviction, which you can read here.
