A Call for Solidarity

A quotation from the letter:

This is not a time for the Church to be silent...In joint conversation with Senior Bishop John Bryant of the African
Methodist Episcopal Church and Senior Bishop George E. Battle, Sr., of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, and in subsequent conversations with Bishops of other denominations, we have agreed to ask the members of our respective denominations to wear black on Sunday, December 14, 2014, in solidarity with the message that "Black Life Matters." Moreover, we are asking pastors on that Sunday to have special prayer at our altars, asking God's presence and protection over the lives of our Black men.
