Bridges and Beacons – June 16

Marie Stevens celebrates the end of slavery in the United States as she reflects on Juneteenth, which is commemorated each year on June 19. Marie reads from the Book of Exodus as she draws parallels between the plight of African-Americans and the Israelite slaves of Biblical times.

We are inviting you to lead an upcoming devotional as we reflect on our favorite Bible stories! If you are interested, please send an email to with “Bridges and Beacons” in the subject line and we will contact you about filming.

We hope these devotionals continue to offer a chance to slow down, take stock of our blessings, and to allow the peace and calm of Jesus’ message to fill our hearts.
