Africana Heritage Celebration

February 5, 2021 by The staff of The Upper Room

During the month of February in the United States, we pause to celebrate and recognize the heritage and history of African American people. Join us for this special service from The Upper Room Chapel with Rev. Dr. Safiyah Fosua sharing a powerful meditation on Jeremiah 29.

The Upper Room is committed to a ministry that is increasingly global, antiracist, and ecumenical. In these days we are called to give special and focused attention to being antiracist. This is the work of discipleship and spiritual formation.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
