UBE gala invite

Union of Black Episcopalians holds up hopeful vision of who we can be

The Rev. Carlye Hughes is in Salt Lake City as part of the Diocese of Fort Worth’s deputation to General Convention. She attended a gala hosted by the Union of Black Episcopalians on Tuesday evening.

“Today was the first time I have been able to attend a Union of Black Episcopalians event — and what a first time. A gala held in conjunction with General Convention. Honorees tonight and the speakers that presented them held up a picture of who we can be as church, people, and a nation. Amazing the vision held by those who have stood against racism and other forms of oppression for decades. You would think they might be discouraged, but no — instead, they were fired up and hopeful. Wow — what a way to start this thing.”
