A celebration of the true diversity of the saints, addressing our white-washed church history. The Bible tells us Jesus is for every tribe, language, people and nation - so why are all the saints in our stained-glass windows white? An oppressive bias has taken hold of the storytelling of the Church. Many are surprised to discover that St. Augustine was from present day Algeria, and even that most British of saints, George, was an immigrant with a Turkish father and a Palestinian mother. Every Tribe celebrates the true diversity of the saints, inspiring the church to become what it is meant to be: the rainbow people of God serving the diverse needs of a diverse world. Sharon Prentis is currently Intercultural Mission Enabler and Dean of BAME Affairs for the Church of England in Birmingham. She has previously tutored at St Mellitus Theological College in London and her research was recognised by the Department of Health when she was named as a Mary Seacole Scholar for her contribution to faith and health, a continuing interest. The Church of England's Committee for Minority Ethnic Anglican Concerns (CMEAC) identifies, monitors and takes forward concerns of BAME Anglicans and make recommendations for change within the Church and the wider community.
