Social Justice Sunday resources
Grace & Groundings, Ohio Conference’s racial reconciliation resource team, is inviting all Ohio Conference churches to set aside Sunday, June 18, as Social Justice Sunday, in recognition of Juneteenth the following day. (If June 18 does not work well for your congregation, please consider setting aside a different Sunday as Social Justice Sunday.) The theme for this year’s Sunday is race as it relates to freedom. The team has prepared worship planning resources to help guide your planning. May these be helpful as you and your congregation learn, reflect and act in relation to racial reconciliation.
