Holston pastors stand against racism

From Rev. Daniel Ogle's blog, "Not forsaken: Charlottesville, faith, and the promise of the psalms"


ALCOA, Tenn. (Aug. 18. 2017) -- In the first days after deadly protests in Charlottesville, Va., numerous United Methodist pastors from the Holston Conference went to the pulpit or their computers to speak against racism and white supremacy.

Their voices joined many others in The United Methodist Church, including 28 bishops from across the nation and the Southeastern Jurisdiction College of Bishops as they met in Atlanta.

Here are messages from Holston Conference pastors, collected by the Holston newspaper, The Call. This list will continue to grow as we hear from others at thecall@holston.org.
