Black History Month

“In black history, we find a narrative richly woven with the themes of the gospel. It is a history that helps us to better understand God, to comprehend His plan for humanity and to see tangible evidence of His deliverance, love, and blessings.”

Around the country, February is a month to take intentional time to commemorate and celebrate Black History.  In light of this, we are encouraging you to do three things this month:

Remind 

  • Learn about the past
  • Consider its meaning
  • Reflect on its impact

Rejoice 

  • Celebrate the accomplishments of others
  • Honor the sacrifice of others
  • Worship the God who protects, restores, reconciles

Respond 

  • Ask ourselves how what we now know should inform our choices today and tomorrow.

Across The Journey, there are a number of opportunities to do this in community with others. Join us we remind, rejoice and respond together!
