Summary

Summary

First published in 1989, this document by the Black Episcopal Bishops to the whole black community, and to our society as a whole, summarizes a theology of empowerment. Acknowledging basic Gospel truths -- that God created a good world chat God loves -- this document also reminds us char the Black Story is an ancient one. The Black Story and the African story are inseparable; so too are the experience of Moses and God's liberating of the slaves in Egypt, write the Bishops. God cares for the oppressed, they assert repeatedly, not only in history but here and now.
