Good morning, happy Thursday and blessings my dear Holyrood family. Today we begin our celebration of Kwanzaa.
This is a gathering to celebrate Afro-descendant cultures and held between December 26 and January 1, with each day focused on one of the seven core values or “'Nguzo Saba”, a candle is lit every day.
Today I invite you to meditate in the first Kwanzaa candle and let’s meditate in the principle or value Umoja (Unit). And let’s recognize the need we have as individuals and as a church in general to cultivate Unity in diversity.
