Asbury Broadneck United Methodist Church
Asbury Broadneck United Methodist Church is an historical African American church. It is reported that the church began before 1851 when enslaved men of African decent started meeting at a placed called “Old School House Hill” to praise God in their own way. This was before they could afford a church house. But, the first church was built only yards from the original meeting location on St. Margaret’s Road, which is now Meeting House Lane south of Route 50 east of Annapolis, MD.
I saw Pastor Tillett’s photo in the Sunday Capital announcing his position as community member of their editorial board. I am a member of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis(off Bestgate next to St. John Neumanns) – same church as another new member of the editorial board – Phyliss Culham.
I am a member of our church’s Anti-Racism Council and am interested in Pastor Tillett’s desire to minister to incarcerated people and their families. We are beginning a study of Michele Alexander’s book – The New Jim Crow by showing the documentary – The House I Live In which is an overview of issues presented in the book. I’d like to invite members of your faith group who are intressted to attend a showing – there are 3 showings in Jan. – open to the public – free. I will try to call the church and would like Pastor Tillett to call me if possible. Candy Clark 443-370-5297 Pray for Peace – Work for Justice
