August 25, 2019 is the 400th anniversary of the first landing of enslaved Africans in English-occupied North America at Point Comfort in Hampton, Virginia, now part of Fort Monroe National Monument, a unit of the National Park System.
The anniversary will be commemorated at Fort Monroe as a day of healing and reconciliation. The park and its partners are inviting all 419 national parks, NPS programs, community partners, and the public to come together in solidarity to ring bells simultaneously across the nation for four minutes--one for each century--to honor the first Africans who landed in 1619 at Point Comfort and 400 years of African American history.
Join us for a time of examining our roots in Jesus Christ, recalling who we are called to be and what we are called to do in his name. Listening to each other will strengthen us to reconnect and grow in community as we serve Christ in the world today. Come for time with our bishops and diocesan leaders as we share hopes for the Church in Virginia.
Do you celebrate your birthday every year? Most of us do. Do you celebrate your baptism every year? What an idea! Some folks do it at home, and some don't, but St. Luke's is going to celebrate everyone's baptism, and invite those not yet baptized to learn about it and celebrate this gift God gives us freely. Please come a little early or stay a little later on Sunday, January 13th when we celebrate the Baptism of our Lord Jesus and our own re-birth in his grace and the power of the Holy Spirit.
