The Importance of Juneteenth

Jasmine: "You have these Christian people who are living in captivity and enslavement who, against all odds, love the Lord and want to serve him. But they aren't able to, to their fullest, because of their enslavement. All of a sudden, there's this citizenship. There's this opportunity, for the first time, to read God's word, to assemble in churches, to obey what he says about taking care of our families. It's just a beautiful thing. And we aren't saying that you have to celebrate Juneteenth because it's a biblical holiday. But there definitely is a precedent of being grateful for the ways that God has worked on behalf of our people."
