The Rev. Dr. Ellen Clark-King, our Executive Pastor and Canon for Social Justice, wrote an article for The Episcopal Café on her and the Rev. Mary Carter Greene’s experiences on the U.S.-Mexico border.
“I saw a fenced space where families separated by the border could speak to one another, supervised by border patrol, with mesh too fine to allow them to touch.
I saw walls that looked as if they held hardened criminals, where people simply seeking refuge were being held apart from their children.
I saw Episcopalians, Roman Catholics, Presbyterians, Unitarians, Jews, Sikhs, Muslims and Buddhists all singing together and crying out together to bring hope to the people behind the walls.”
