Sunday Service with Emmanuel and Sharon Brown, founders of the AFrican AMErican History and Literature Gallery
Jun 13 @ 10:30 am – 11:45 am

This Sunday, June 13th, is very special. The curators for the AFrican AMErican History and Literature Gallery, Emmanuel and Sharon Brown, will be sharing their inspiring story with us. Additionally, we will be remembering Juneteenth and the 5th anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shooting. As usual, there will be inspiring poetry, music, and meditation to lift the spirit and sustain the soul. Join on Zoom.

Those on our Order of Service distribution list will receive an Order of Service email on Saturday with the Zoom login details. If you are not on this list and would like to attend, please email office@berrienuu.org for Zoom information.

 

“Juneteenth is a time to recommit ourselves to the work that remains undone. We remember that even in the darkest hours, there is cause to hope for tomorrow’s light. Today, no matter our race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation, we recommit ourselves to working to free modern-day slaves around the world and to honoring in our own time the efforts of those who fought so hard to steer our country truer to our highest ideals.”

– Barak Obama
