In the Speaker Series on Race co-hosted by Bishop Hughes and the Namaste Anti-Racism Commission, three leaders from within The Episcopal Church reflect on the question “How are we talking about race in The Episcopal Church?” Each speaker will provide a unique understanding and an opportunity for reflections on race.
The speaker for Monday, November 16, 2020 was the Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers, the Presiding Bishop’s Canon for Evangelism, Reconciliation and Creation. (Time: 1:47:46.)
The author of Radical Welcome: Embracing God, The Other and the Spirit of Transformation – as well as The Episcopal Way and Companions on the Episcopal Way (with Eric Law) – she has directed mission and evangelism work at General Theological Seminary and as a canon in the Diocese of Long Island; founded The Crossing, a ground-breaking church within St. Paul’s Cathedral in Boston and led numerous church-wide renewal efforts. A native of Frankfort, Kentucky, and a graduate of both Episcopal Divinity School and Harvard Divinity School, she makes her home today in New York’s Harlem neighborhood.
