Church honors late reverend – City

This article, courtesy of The Daily Tar Heel, discusses how The Chapel of the Cross honored Dr. Pauli Murray.

An excerpt:

A special service at the Chapel of the Cross on Thursday commemorated the 30th anniversary of the day the Rev. Dr. Pauli Murray became the first black woman to perform a Eucharist as an Episcopal priest.

The service was delivered by a woman who reached another milestone – Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, the first woman to head an American church…

“As we stand here today, we can say with utter confidence that her life and ministry have brought others to greater awareness, healing, and yes, even friendship, than would have been possible without her strong witness,” Jefferts Schori said.

She also noted her debt to Murray. “I know I stand here today only because she stood here before me. Her proud shoes have carried many others down the road to freedom.”

God-chaser. NC native, now planted in Jacksonville, FL. Happily married to a handsome church-planting pastor. I am easily excited by Jesus, education, cupcakes, Moleskine notebooks, and Pepsi. Overwhelmed by God's amazing grace, undeserving of His love and mercy.
