In his sermon on June 18, Pastor Chris referenced On Juneteenth, a book by Annette Gordon-Reed - a “raised in Conroe” professor, author, and historian. The book pulls together history, politics, and personal memories into several informed essays reflecting on the history of Juneteenth and “urges Texans and all Americans to reflect critically on this tangled history.”
