The Social Action Commission of the African Methodist Episcopal Church has declared Sunday, December 14th as "Black Life Has Value Sunday" and are asking everyone to wear black clothing to church this coming Sunday!!! Please see Bishop Young's message below:

We join the Social Action Commission (SAC) chaired by Bishop Reginald
Jackson and our Senior Bishop, Bishop John R. Bryant in requesting all
members of the Third Episcopal District African Methodist Episcopal Church
to wear black to church on December 14th, the second Sunday of this month.
Wearing black is intended to send a message that "Black life has value."
Over the last several months we have seen unarmed Blacks killed by police,
and grand juries have not indicted any police, even when there was a video
showing the Black male being choked by police and saying "I can't breathe."
By wearing black each of us can individually affirm that our lives have
value. It is important that we individually and collectively express our
belief that our lives have value.

We also call upon every pastor to speak to his/her congregation about the
events of the last few weeks and encourage the members and visitors, by
reminding them that while these are difficult days, "right will win" and God
will have the last word. While we grieve the deaths of each of our brothers,
we are especially grieved and saddened by the senseless shooting by
Cleveland, Ohio police of Tamir Rice, a 12 years old playing with a pellet
gun in a park. We must affirm that Black life has value. It is important
that pastors shepherd their congregations at this difficult time. God does
have a word for the living and facing of these days.

During the worship pastors are also requested to call those who will, to
come to the altar and offer prayer that God will intervene to end the
demonic pattern of killing unarmed Blacks, and that God will give us faith
and courage "for the facing of these days". Let us also pray that God will
heal our land, and bring about reconciliation in the Season of Advent.
