Black History Month Sermon Series: Advocacy in worship

February 1, 2021

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.
