“And when thou sendest him out free from thee, thou shalt not let him go away empty. Thou shalt furnish him liberally out of thy flock, and out of thy floor, and out of thy winepress: of that wherewith the Lord thy God hath blessed thee thou shalt give unto him.”
-Deuteronomy 5:13 -14
WHAT IS REPARATIONS SUNDAY?
The Mission of Reparations Sunday is to connect the socially conscious who are engaged in the fight for reparations with churches who are willing to lead or fight alongside them for social change.
The church is the cornerstone of the community, but over time the church has lost its significance in the lives of generations of people, mostly young and socially conscious. These generations are very engaged in current affairs and social justice issues but find very little support and solace in the arms of the church.
Reparations Sunday works in two ways:
(1) Reparations Sunday provides a map of churches around the country to assist seekers in finding a church home.
(2) Reparations Sunday works alongside churches with reparations initiatives and uniform call-to-actions.
