An outstanding sermon by the Rt Rev Howard Gregory, Lord Bishop of Jamaica and the Cayman Islands on the occasion of Emancipation and Independence celebrations.
This sermon was preached at St. Andrew ( Anglican) Parish Church in Kingston Jamaica by the Rt. Reverend Howard Gregory, The Anglican Diocesan Bishop of Jamaica and the Cayman island. It made such an impact on me that I requested the full text so that wider audience might benefit from this sermon which locates Jamaica in a complex historical space and challenges the nation to seek a deeper understanding of the Freedom gained at Emancipation.

Let us pray.
Almighty God, you have created us, called us, chosen us to be your people. We wait now to receive your word of guidance and blessing. Grant unto us ears to hear, eyes to see, and faith to respond to your love and leadership. In the name of Christ. Amen.
