It is Juneteenth. Through our reconciling ministries, our call to anti-racism work and our Big Deal Weekend we are committing ourselves to the decisive action of dismantling racism and resisting oppression in all its forms. This parallels denominational efforts. On this Sunday, we will observe Juneteenth as a sign of solidarity and hope for all of God’s people. Liberation activists remind us that our liberation is bound to the liberation of all. Jesus liberates people. In the Gospel of Luke, we find Jesus healing a demoniac, unbinding him, and redirecting him to the work of God. On this Juneteenth, let us be redirected to the work that shines the light on justice and bears witness to the unity of salvation for the entire body of Christ. Come, let us worship a Liberating God.
