Juneteenth: Celebrating the Good News of Freedom

Where the Spirit of the Lord there is freedom. II Corinthians 3:17 

Today as we mark the Juneteenth national holiday, we invite you to reflect on this documentary that expands our awareness of our nation’s journey towards freedom for all.

This documentary was produced through a partnership between the Jude 3 Project and Our Daily Bread. The Transforming Center is grateful for this offering and may or may not be in agreement with everything these organizations stand for.

What an amazing documentary! I was both heartbroken by the reminder of all that black American’s have suffered, especially at the hands of the church, in America and also filled with hope over the progress we have made and the prospect of increased freedom for all. I was inspired by the faith and courage of so many who risked everything, in the face of overwhelming difficulty and opposition for the sake of freedom. That’s what Jesus did! Thank you for sending this to us!

Thanks for sharing this. I learned a lot, and found it to be inspiring, concerning and thought-provoking on many levels. I plan to show it to my small group tonight, and look forward to the discussion.

So glad to hear this! Hope it is a transforming conversation….

“It is difficult studying this history.” Today I am praying we will not look away. What is your prayer today?
