Black History Month Sermon Series: Advocacy in worship


Join host Rev. David Street, deputy director of organizing at Bread for the World, and young adult Black faith leaders from the Bread for the World network for a series of online worship services throughout Black History Month. Scripture tells us that the heavens announce and broadcast the fact that God is a just God. Through music and word, pastors will anchor their message in Psalms 50:6: “And the heavens proclaim his righteousness, for he is a God of justice.”  Faith leaders will lift themes of love, peace, and justice throughout their message and speak to God’s call to put our faith in action.

Black History Month is a time we celebrate Black excellence, especially in the faith and justice arena. Historically, the Black church has been a place of refuge and engagement for justice that includes advocating against hunger and poverty. Join us to be inspired by the messages of God’s love delivered by young adult Black faith leaders and engage in the noble legacy of what has become known as the Black Church.
