Diversity Committee

A call to appreciate one another as children of God was issued at the General Convention of the Episcopal Church in 2009. At that time every leadership body of the Church (Standing Committees, Vestries, Etc) was urged to institute programs or sessions on ‘anti-racism.' Though a number of classroom approaches are currently offered throughout the country, the Outreach Commission of the Diocese of New Hampshire has undertaken an approach pioneered by Mr. James McKim of the N.H. Diversity Committee (formerly known as the Anti-Racism Task Force) and the Rev. William Exner, Outreach Commission Chair. 

This approach contains a number of resources. They all invite leaders and others of our congregations to get at the root of the many of the worlds problems; the need to get to know, understand, and appreciate one another as people of God’s own making. This will combat discrimination based on race, creed, color, gender, age, and more.
