Bishop Chip Marble

Bishop Chip Marble, Assisting Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, attended a reflection session today with our summer interns. He shared about his background of growing up in Vicksburg, Mississippi, his experiences of trying to initiate a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to review race-related lynchings and other violence in Mississippi, and his general thoughts about race, religion and politics. The interns discussed one of his most interesting observations about himself:

Growing up, I had to work on my own personal journey. You don't grow up white in a culture like I did without racism being a part of your bones.

Because some of us identified with this statement and others did not, we had a great discussion and are looking forward to spending time with other guests throughout the summer. Thanks to Bishop Marble for his time and shared ideas.

Jill Williams, Exec. Dir.
