Black and Diaconal Panel Discussion

Black and Diaconal Panel Discussion

As part of our recognition of Black History Month, the Centre for Christian Studies hosted an online panel discussion with some of the Black diaconal ministers and deacons in the United Church and Anglican Church in Canada. (They took as a launching point the 2022 interview in Broadview magazine.) CCS program staff member Alcris Limongi facilitated the conversation and Therese Samuel was the tech host. Anglican deacon Aldith Baker, United Church diaconal minister Marlene Britton, and United Church diaconal ministry student Lisa Byer-de Wever explore how these identities – Black and Diaconal – inform each other, the challenges they pose in the church today, and the gifts these perspectives bring for the people of God.

Black History Month at CCS continues next week with an online Celebration of African/Caribbean Heritage in the Diaspora, with storytelling, food, fabrics, music, etc.
