Two years ago, before the pandemic, a pastor at a Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) church in Texas was thinking about retiring at age 70. Now he hopes he can make it for 17 more months to reach the retirement age of 66 years and 4 months.
Dear Siblings and Friends of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.),
Grace and peace to you in the name of the One who was born in, crucified at, and risen from the westernmost land of the Asian continent, Jesus the Christ!
We, the Disparities Experienced by Black Women and Girls Task Force stand with our Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) siblings as they continue to experience the spiritual and emotional violence of racism and misogyny from the recent Atlanta murders.
It is with heavy hearts and concern that the National Hispanic/Latino Presbyterian Caucus of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) denounces the recent acts of violence against Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI) sisters and brothers, specially, last week’s March 17, 2021 murder of six Asian and Asian American women.
The Rev. Sameh Shaker and Dr. Mirna Wasef, moderator and vice moderator of the National Middle Eastern Presbyterian Caucus, have released this statement on behalf of the caucus about last week’s shootings in the presbyteries of Greater Atlanta and Cherokee:
Asian Americans across the country have found themselves victims of violent crimes for no apparent reason other than their ethnicity. Tuesday’s killing of eight people in Atlanta, including six Asian women, four of whom were South Koreans, has brought about offers of support among Presbyterians — and cries for hate and violence to stop.
