Juneteenth marks the end of slavery in the United States and is the oldest known celebration honoring the end of enslavement of people of African descent. While Juneteenth celebrates freedom, it also reminds us of the many ways in which the legacy of slavery still lives in our national life. We remember that many promises of freedom were not kept; that we have yet to live up to our ideals of ‘liberty and justice for all.’
This worship service, we pray, is only the beginning of a long road of repentance and new life; the road toward freedom and justice for all of God’s beloved children. Join us as we commemorate this important day and re-commit ourselves to our congregation’s anti-racism statement.
