In recent months, the Covid-19 epidemic has led to an increase in racism directed at the Asian and Asian-American community. On behalf of the that community in general, and our own Asian and Asian-American brothers and sisters in the Covenant community, we wish to affirm the following:
Covenant Seminary laments the growing number of racist and xenophobic attacks against the Asian and Asian-American community in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. Covenant Seminary stands against all forms of racism directed toward our Asian and Asian-American students, staff, families, neighbors, and community. As all humans bear God’s image, Covenant Seminary believes every human bears dignity and should be treated with both respect and love.
May the Lord strengthen us to love our Asian and Asian-American brothers and sisters well in this time and to show his love and care to the Asian and Asian-American community in general.
