This year, the National Council of Churches will be marking 400 years since the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in America. At the Christian Unity Gathering, we will join together in a public witness at Point Comfort, Virginia, where it is recorded that the suffering of millions began in a legacy that lives on today through systemic racism that ravages our churches, communities, and lives.
This year’s theme: Confronting the Hierarchy of Human Value: Revisiting Our Past and Naming God’s Preferred Future
The Christian Unity Gathering is the signature, annual event of the National Council of Churches. All members of NCC governance structures, convening tables, and all ecumenical officers and regional, state, and local ecumenical executives are urged to attend.
