Juneteenth is a holiday that celebrates the end of slavery—more specifically, the ending of slavery in Texas. Considering what the holiday represents, I think it’s important for Christians to celebrate Juneteenth. We should rejoice in the dismantling of such a horrible system. But we should also honor the holiday because we live as a unique example of what it means to walk in freedom.
Every February, we are reminded of the influence that Black Americans have had on our nation’s history through the celebration of Black History Month. As believers, this month can be especially beneficial as a time to promote God’s heart for reconciliation, unity, and treating people as the dignity-filled image bearers that they are.
