The Reparations Committee of the Diocese of New York plans for the coming year during a 3-day retreat in Sleepy Hollow and Ossining. Many thanks to Waddell Stillman, Committee Member and President of Historic Hudson Valley, who set up an amazing tour featuring the lives of the enslaved men, women and children at historic Philipsburg Manor (which you can read more about here). Look for more about our work here on this blog in the months to come.
Quoted in one of our morning meditations, from a sermon by the Rt. Rev. Barbara Harris:
The power behind you is greater than the task ahead of you.
