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.
