“The Dodgers and the city have still never apologized to the residents of Palo Verde, La Loma and Bishop. There have been no reparations paid. If there is to be true reconciliation those things must happen.
And … Dodger Stadium is a place where we are imagining a new story of who we can be together as a city. Where even for a few hours what binds us together is greater than what might divide us. It’s why we wear Blue this Sunday.
It's all about the stories. Telling not just part of them but, as Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows says and as we are doing with our teams looking at our stained glass windows and the land this church sits on … telling the whole story so together we can write a new story.
The story of the Dodgers is our story. Not because we are Dodger fans or even because we are Angelinos … but because our stories are stories of being conqueror and conquered. Our stories are stories of being abandoned and embraced. Our stories are stories of being driven away from who and what is precious to us .. and finding new homes where amazing things happen.”
