Church Council Registers Protest over Spoonbread Festival Merchandise

Over 50,000 people attended the 19th annual Spoonbread Festival in Berea over the weekend of Sept 19-20. The Festival is presented by the Berea Chamber of Commerce (of which Union Church is a member), and supported by a number of sponsors, including the City of Berea Tourism department. We were dismayed to see vendors selling racially divisive and objectionable materials, including the so-called “Confederate Flag.” Moved by our faith in the inclusive love of God and by Berea’s heritage of racial justice, the Union Church Council has written a letter of concern to the Berea Chamber of Commerce specifically asking that additional rules be implemented to prohibit these symbols of enslavement and intimidation. A copy of the letter is posted below.
