Jones continued to lead the Episcopal community, focusing especially on serving the African American community. He founded a day school (as African Americans were excluded from attending public school), the Female Benevolent Society, and an African Friendly Society. In 1800 he called upon Congress to abolish the slave trade and to provide for gradual emancipation of existing slaves. Jones died in 1818.
May we all have the courage to love, to be vulnerable and to find the rest for our souls by following Christ’s way of mercy and opening to His grace.
