Slavery Memorial Day, 23 August

As churches and countries mark Slavery Memorial Day, we remember the world-wide call to repentance and reparation laid upon many consciences and cultures.  We pray for the day when those of all races, and those of all faiths and of none, will be treated fairly and equally by everyone.  — Joint Liturgical Group of Great Britain*
