Authors’ Note on Context Awareness

We wrote and compiled this liturgy from a specific vantage point.  As three white cisgendered individuals, we recognize not only the need for education surrounding Juneteenth, but also the specific work that the white community needs to do.  We imagine this liturgy to be used in a largely white congregation.  We do acknowledge that our denomination (PCUSA) has congregations of color, but we felt unable to speak/write for persons of color and wish not to steal their unique voices.

Bulletin Inserts

Note on Context Awareness

Our bulletin inserts are written by white cisgendered members of this Network. We recognize not only the need for education surrounding Juneteenth, but also the specific work that the white community needs to do.  Written to be used in a largely white congregation, these bulletin inserts can also be used in church newsletters and other areas of Christian Education.  We do acknowledge that our denomination (PCUSA) has congregations of color, but we felt unable to speak/write for persons of color and wish not to steal their unique voices.
