The Southern New England Conference of United Church of Christ published a feature article on Norfield Congregational Church in their August newsletter:
Spotlight: The Bell Tolls for All of Us.
The article tells the remarkable story of the ringing of the church’s bell to act as a reminder to the Weston community of the injustices taking place against people of color.
“The bell is rung for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, the exact length of time that George Floyd was pinned down and killed in Minnesota on Monday, May 25, 2020. When the Norfield bell tolls, the community is reminded to remember George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and many other people of color who have suffered and are suffering from racial injustice in this country.”
