Bishop Heyd In Response to The Attempted Assassination of Ex-President Trump

On Saturday night, we watched news about the assassination attempt on former president Donald Trump. Two people were killed in the incident.

This spring we haven’t talked together as a Diocese about convulsions in our civic life. Every day seems to bring some new tumult— trials, convictions, debates. We’re not pundits. Sometimes it helps to turn off the news.

But the events of Saturday night reflect deeper violence in our culture that seeks a Gospel response.

Recently, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry quoted scholar Charles Marsh, who’s written about the theology of the civil rights movement. Professor Marsh describes the power of the non-violent organizing of Martin Luther King Jr.:

“The logic of King’s dream was theologically specific: beloved community as the realization of divine love in lived social relation.  

“To be sure, King’s concept of love was surely not the platitudinous ‘all you need is love’; it was rather the passion to make human life and social existence a parable of God’s love for the world. 

“It was agape: the outrageous venture of loving the other without conditions—a risk and a costly sacrifice. 

“‘If I respond to hate with a reciprocal hate,’ King said, ‘I do nothing but intensify the cleavage in broken community. I can only close the gap . . . by meeting hate with love.’”

Our faith has always called us to engage in God’s healing of the world. That’s the history of the Diocese of New York and it's our story right now. This year— amidst the mayhem around us— we can share a Gospel passion to organize for a Beloved Community.   

This engagement with our civic life too often stands in counterpoint to the white Christian nationalism that is a false version of the Gospel. It enmeshes religion and politics and sells out our faith for political gain. Our redemption comes through Jesus Christ, not through partisan victory.

We give thanks for the first responders who kept the crowd safe on Saturday.  

We pray for the former president and his family and for those who were killed. We pray also for the grace to organize for the Beloved Community to which we’re called.

Grace & Peace,
