When:
Where:Zoom Series

Please join us Friday, December 4th at 6:30 on Zoom for our new Jazz Café: Music, Race, and Conversation series.

In this series, we will explore black music, listen to personal stories, and learn more about the history of race and racism in this country and beyond. 
We will be watching the 1972 biographical drama, Lady Sings the Blues, in which Diana Ross portrays legendary jazz singer Billie Holiday. Beginning with Holiday’s traumatic youth, the film depicts her early attempts at a singing career and her eventual rise to stardom, as well as her difficult relationship with Louis McKay (Billy Dee Williams), her boyfriend and manager. The film also portrays Holiday’s struggles with poverty, racism and drug addiction.

Events will be held on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month, 7:30-8:30 PM over Zoom. Upcoming dates: Dec. 18th

Hosted by Robert Messore and facilitated by the Racial Justice Fellowship leaders

Racial Justice, Healing, & Reconciliation

Jesus is calling the St. John’s community to the work of racial justice, reconciliation, and healing as an integral part of our walk of faith in a broken, sinful, and suffering world.

Statement on behalf of the congregation, the clergy, the wardens, and the vestry of St. John’s Episcopal Church New Haven:
St. John’s Episcopal Church stands against all forms of racism, in full agreement with the Statement from the Bishops of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut dated May 28, 2020, of which this is an excerpt:

Racism and the resulting violence against people of color perpetrated by those who have power in our nation and state has led recently to the tragic and inexcusable deaths of George Floyd in Minnesota, Jose Soto in Connecticut, Breonna Taylor in Kentucky, and Ahmaud Arbery in Georgia. Such violence is unacceptable and contrary to the will of God and the promise of justice and freedom central to our country’s ideals. We must not let the realities of COVID-19 distract us from speaking out against, and working to dismantle,the forces of racism and white supremacy that continue to infect our lives and our nation. It is that very inaction and silence that feed into the legacy of white supremacySilence is complicity and we must not participate in the forces of evil that divide us.

The Episcopal Church in Connecticut is committed to the work of Racial Healing, Justice, and Reconciliation. For us to be the Beloved Community in Jesus that we are committed to becoming, we must act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God (Micah 6:8).
