SO... WHAT EXACTLY IS JUNETEENTH
The Emancipation Proclamation issued by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863, had established that all enslaved people in Confederate states in rebellion against the Union “shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free.”
But in reality, the Emancipation Proclamation didn’t instantly free any enslaved people. The proclamation only applied to places under Confederate control and not to slave-holding border states or rebel areas already under Union control.

RACE IN A BROKEN WORLD
Danté Upshaw led a workshop with the Bay Area Chapter of The Gospel Coalition titled “Race in the New Community.”
Speaking of the new community created by God through Christ, and sharing from his own experiences and Scripture, Upshaw opened a conversation around the necessity of handling race in a gospel-centered manner.
Rooted in Ephesians 3, Upshaw encouraged a grace-filled approach to dealing with our divided history and experiencing the mystery of the gospel together.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"Truly He taught us to love one another.
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother
And in his name all oppression shall cease."
Placide Cappeau, O Holy Night
