Celebrating Our Tangled Independence

This week marks the 246th year of our country’s constitutional beginning. How do we align our cruel history and our pride in this beautiful land? Let’s start with George Washington’s birthplace and wind our way into Juneteenth, finally a nationally recognized holiday.

Across the Atlantic

The African diaspora via the slave trade brought sacred wisdom to the United States which wove into the history of Christianity in this country. We’ll celebrate Juneteenth by looking at the spiritual lives of Black folks during the time of slavery.
