A Letter Concerning the Death of​ George Floyd and so Many Others

Body

This letter is signed by Bishops Jim Hobby, Todd Hunter, Stewart Ruch and Steve Wood

George Floyd was made in the image of God and as such is a person of utmost value. This is not true because a few Anglican Bishops issue a letter. This conviction arises from our reading of Scripture. The Psalmist said:

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.​I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
(Psalm 139:13-14)
