Saltmine’s #BlackLivesMatter Statement
At Saltmine we firmly and wholeheartedly believe that Black Lives Matter. We stand beside our Black colleagues and friends; we mourn with them and we honour them.
We deplore racism in all its forms; but recognise that we operate in a systematically racist society. It is both our passion and our responsibility to be deliberately counter-cultural in pursuing diversity and equality.
We believe every human to have been created in the image of God. The recent festival of Pentecost reminds us that we love and serve a God whose priority was equipping the early church to welcome all people, of all cultures, to celebrate them and not erase them.
We acknowledge that sometimes we get it wrong, and we want to invite discussion, challenge and learning; the first steps on the long path to understanding.
Following the example of Jesus who disrupted the status quo with his radical love, we recommit ourselves, in all things: to “Do justly, love mercy and walk humbly with our God”
