CELEBRATING FATHER’S DAY & JUNETEENTH!
by Rev. Dr. Arthur Chang

Excerpted from the Encyclopedia Britannica
 
FATHER’S DAY
Father’s Day, in the United States, holiday (third Sunday in June) to honor fathers. Credit for originating the holiday is generally given to Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington, whose father, a Civil War veteran, raised her and her five siblings after their mother died in childbirth.

Dodd got the idea in 1909 while listening to a sermon on Mother’s Day, which was becoming established as a holiday. The first Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910. This was the month of the birthday of Dodd’s father.

In 1924 U.S. Pres. Calvin Coolidge gave his support to the observance.

In 1966 Pres. Lyndon B. Johnson issued a proclamation recognizing the day.

In 1972 it became a national holiday, when Pres. Richard Nixon signed legislation designating the third Sunday of June as Father’s Day.

This year, Father's Day is celebrated on Sunday, June 19, 2022, in most countries.

Founder’s wishes all Father’s a Happy Father’s Day!
 
JUNETEENTH
In 1863, during the American Civil War, Pres. Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, declaring the freedom of more than three million slaves living in the Confederate states. More than two years would pass, however, before the news reached African Americans living in Texas.

It was when the Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865, that the state’s residents finally learned that slavery was abolished. The former slaves immediately began to celebrate with prayer, feasting, song, and dance.

The following year, on June 19, the first official Juneteenth celebrations took place in Texas. The original observances included prayer meetings and the singing of spirituals, and celebrants wore new clothes as a way of representing their newfound freedom.
Within a few years, African Americans in other states were celebrating the day as well, making it an annual tradition.

Celebrations have continued across the United States into the 21st century. Typically, the celebrations include prayer and religious services, speeches, educational events, family gatherings and picnics, and festivals with music, food, and dancing.

Juneteenth became a state holiday in Texas in 1980, and a number of other states subsequently followed suit.

In 2021 Juneteenth was made a federal holiday. The day is also celebrated outside the United States, being used by organizations in a number of countries to recognize the end of slavery and to honor the culture  and achievements of African Americans.

Founder’s blesses this celebration of freedom for Black Americans!

Living Up To Your Promise

We are born with amazing potential as well as an inner prompting of what we wish to do with our lives. Many of us are yet to live up to the potential we show. Believing we can will put us on that track for living up to our promise.

Ernest's Corner
Whatever we think, act, believe in, feel, visualize, vision, image, read and talk about—in fact all processes which affect or impress us at all—are going into the subjective state of our thought, which is our individualized use of Universal Mind. Whatever goes into the subjective state of our thought tends to return again as some condition. So we, and we alone, control our destiny.
