Church Cuts Juneteenth Video Praising Their Black Skin and ‘Slave Blood’

Discover Community Church is…a strange church. Two congregations that merged in 2019 to form a new entity, they have campuses in Maryland and Virginia, but they don’t meet together corporately as one body. Instead, two pastors, Kevin Jones and Wesley Johnson, lead their respective campuses by preaching from their living rooms. 

Congregants can view the service online or attend “watch parties,” where a dozen people meet in different homes to watch the service online, which must be pre-registered to participate. These watch parties are ‘CDC compliant,’ and their language suggests they’re still concerned about COVID. 

They meet only twice a month- every first and third Sunday for a virtual service. They encourage people to spend the second and fourth Sundays with family, and every 5th Sunday is Community Service Sunday, where there are no watch parties but rather “community service is our sole ministry focus for the day.”

During their Juneteenth Service, they featured a ‘mindful moment’- in-house created times of meditation before the services that feature a reassuring voice encouraging personal affirmations over serene video clips. It’s not something we’ve ever seen or heard of before being included in a liturgy, and this Juneteenth one wild indeed.

Close your eyes and draw your focus inward. Feel the air against your skin. Breathe deeply filling your lungs with another breath of life. With each breath your heart rate slows. Feel the power coursing through your veins.

It is the blood of those who survived so you could thrive. As it moves throughout your body, touching every part, it carries with it the wisdom and reminder of how you arrived here and who you are.

We are black. We live side by side in a different America. We constantly refine our ever-evolving language to speak truth. We write the soundtrack for progress. We move differently. The rhythm of our walk is hundreds of years of confidence from nimbly navigating obstacles that could never stop us.

We learn American history then we teach the rest of history so we aren’t forgotten. Our family is our community. We show up glistening. We don’t find joy, we create it in the arid places. We take what is discarded and weave wonders. We press our feet into the earth and provide the base that elevates the country for the world to see. Our strength is admired but our real strength is in our grace as we fight for equality instead of revenge.

We are black. We thrive anywhere under any conditions. We are not broken. We are honed. The fittest survivors. We do all of this with the world working against us. Imagine what we will be when that is no longer the case.

Open your eyes. Look at your hands. Turn them over in marvel at your melanin. It protects you from the sun. It signals to the world the wonder you are.

You are black. And you are beautiful. Today we celebrate us. We celebrate freedom that was, and is, and is to come.

  1. I’ll never understand why many blacks keep essentially telling themselves they’re not created equal, and are not of equal significance and value to the Lord. More puzzling is the efforts of many to associate themselves with the porneia mafia, as if their skin color is equivalent to abominable sin.

    Even in the midst of such an occult-like ritual, which contains the worship of melanin and the worship of ancestry, they sprinkle in these destructive lies.

    Quit believing the lies, dagnabbit. You are what God says you are – and His word on the matter is infinitely supreme and final.

    1. “power coursing through your veins…refining language to speak truth…hundreds of years of confidence…obstacles that could never stop us…we show up glistening…weaving wonders…provide the base that elevates the country…thrive anywhere under any conditions…the fittest survivors…marvel at your melanin. It protects you from the sun. It signals to the world the wonder you are.”

      They view themselves as unequal, but not in the way you think.

      1. As I said, setting aside the skin and ancestry worship, yet still the lies are sprinkled in, that they do not have, have not yet attained, and must fight for that which God has already established.

      2. That’s not to say that there is never a need to fight or contend. What it means is that our first and foremost calling is to accept the absolute truth of God’s word, and to stand immovable upon it. Without that foundation, we will never “fight” the proper way. There’s a big difference in fighting to obtain something, as opposed to fighting to not allow others to take that which God has given. One is severely offensive. The other is defensive. The outlook is different. What goes on between our ears is different. One carries a chip on the shoulder. The other doesn’t. One leads to perpetual conflict. The other to peace. One is given to vengeance. The other leaves vengeance to the Lord. One is focused on the here and now. The other focused on eternal truth.

        And some on both “sides” are guilty of it. Some on both sides fight the wrong way.

        I can point to some in your camp, The_Peter, including some things you yourself have said, which could also be taken to be supremacist and racist, worshiping skin color, worshiping ancestry, and would also amount to fighting the wrong way – particularly when it comes to deliberately misrepresenting scripture to claim it says something racist when it does not. But I believe it’s not coming from a belief that you are superior because you’re white european. It’s coming from a desire to fight back the wrong way. You’re no different, my friend. And I give the church in question the same benefit of the doubt that I give you. Neither of you are too far gone. What you both need to do is step off the shifting sands, quit leaning on your own understanding, and step onto the solid rock of God’s word.

    2. My most recent pay test was for a 12-hour-per-week internet job for 9,500 dollars. For months, my sister’s friend has been making an average of 15,000, and she puts in about 20 hours every week. As soon as I gave it a try, I was shocked at how simple it was
      Do this instead———————————>>>

    3. I’ve seen Messianic Jews who act the same, claiming to accept Jesus but still saying that their ancestry and rituals are SUPER-DUPER important.

  2. Galations 3:28 “neither bond nor free, There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
    And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

    Colossians 3:11 “Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all.”

    Philippians 3:3 “For we are the circumcision (Jews), which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.”

    There are no ethnic considerations in Christ Jesus. Black roots, Hebrew roots, etc… NONE of it has anything to do with the Christian faith. There is no alternate plan of redemption for any race including those who say they are Jews. God will only recognize His Son and those who follow Him according to the spirit, not the flesh.

  3. Do these people actually work in some worship of the triune God anywhere? Doesn’t sound like it. They also sound obsessed with their race. I can honestly say that when I approach God with God’s people on Sunday, that I’m not thinking about how white I am. Strange “church” indeed.

  4. Make money online from home extra cash more than 18000 to 21000 Dollars. Start getting paid every month Thousands Dollars online. I have received 26000 Dollars in this month by just working online from home in my part time. every person easily vfa do this job by.


  5. If they celebrate their ethnicity and skin colors so much then why do they kill each other so often, especially on holiday weekends, including last weekend, incredibly enough? And why do you hear the “N-word“ used by them toward each other all the time? It seems like a definite case of low self-esteem.

    And why do the women, especially, spend so much money to get their hair straightened and skin lightened to look more white? And when I say that I really mean lighter brown as very few of us really should be called “White“ except those very light-skinned Scotch Irish people who never get any sun or albinos.

    And then why when blacks become successful, which I applaud, they want to live in mostly or all white neighborhoods as even one of the leaders of Black Lives Matter, Patrice Cullors, did so with her four houses purchased with the ill-gotten gains. They seem to think and justifiably so that living around us is safer. Why would that be?

    1. I don’t disagree as it applies to some, but I also wouldn’t read too much into such things, or make questionable assumptions.

      Women do their hair, and worry about their appearance. It’s what they do. White women curl their hair, get sun tans, and so on. In the case of women, those with depression, hopelessness, anxiousness, and a bad self esteem (low or high), tend to not fix themselves up. In the case of men, it’s usually the opposite. We don’t give a flying hoot. It takes us 5 minutes to get dressed and ready to go. Throw on a ball cap and we’re out the door.

      When it comes to buying property, it’s wise to make the best investment you can. So on and so forth.

      Murders in the inner cities are typically gang and drug related. White gangs and mafias have done, and continue to do, the same things. That’s a sin problem that doesn’t have a skin color.
