To honor Black History Month in the ELCA Florida-Bahamas Synod, the Just Love Team presents Harmonies of Heritage: Music’s Journey Through Black Church History. We present four genres of music that impacted the heart and soul of America:
- African Drumming/Call Response
- Negro Spirituals
- Gospel/Civil Rights
We ask each congregation to present the Harmonies of Heritage: Music’s Journey Through Black Church History summary each week in February. It can be done during announcements, a bulletin insert, or wherever fits best into the service. Each week we offer songs and prayers for use during the service. For pastors and liturgical leaders, there are several resources in Sundays and Seasons that can be emphasized during Black History Month. We suggest congregations use This Far By Faith hymnal in February. Read the introduction pages #8-12 for a better understanding of the hymnal and it’s use. This Far by Faith is available on SundaysAndSeasons.com.
