Honoring Juneteenth

by Board of Directors

Grace and Race Ministries, Inc. is pleased to share this resource from R-Squared, a project of the General Commission on Religion and Race of the United Methodist Church. Please visit online to view “Juneteenth: Staying the Course of Freedom and Flourishing for All.” This article outlines the historical origins and offers “6 Ways White People Can Observe Juneteenth”,

“Let Juneteenth be a time when people of Christian faith—especially white Christians—recommit to, evoke, stand on, and live out the promises of God to deliver all people everywhere from bondage and oppression. Just as God walked the Israelites to freedom and flourishing, God stands on the side of oppressed people in this moment. And God’s people are called to roll down justice (Amos 5:24) and to model and champion righteousness like an endless stream.”
