June 23 Service: Juneteenth

We reflect on the significance of Juneteenth, a holiday celebrating the emancipation of enslaved people in Texas, which came two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation, and draw parallels between the delayed liberation and the enduring need to proclaim freedom and justice in our world. Emphasizing the message of Isaiah 61, we are called to actively demonstrate God's love and liberation, not just through words but through deeds that dismantle modern forms of oppression. We must spread kindness and the gospel's message of love.
