It will be a day of unity for every tribe, tongue and nation across the great divide. 

OneRace Movement presents a Day of Remembrance on August 25, 2019, for participating churches across Atlanta, Ga.

The purpose of the Day of Remembrance is simple: for people of all races to remember this day that the Lord made for rejoicing, repentance and reconciliation for racism and division against African Americans across Atlanta, Ga. and the United States.  

Before the Day of Rememberance, the 400Conference took place on August 2, 2019 as a summit with topics, such as Reconciliation and the Gospel, The 400-year American Church Story, Race Relations for Millennials and Generation Z and How to Lead your Church into a Multi-Ethnic Reality, in order to guide congregations across the United States in this month of reflection. A 21-day fast will precede the day of remembrance, starting August 3 through August 24, 2019.       

I think this year is about learning how to break things down into ides and cause action that can fit into other people’s lives,” co-director of the OneRace Movment, Hazen Stevens told Atlanta Christian Voice. “We are beginning to recitify the wrongs of the 200 plus years of slavery, the Jim Crow Era and the Civil Rights Era. Those things cause a person to have a broken heart and think, ‘Where can I respect and honor the change of God for all people?’” 

Those things cause a person to have a broken heart and think, ‘Where can I respect and honor the change of God for all people?’,” Stevens told Atlanta Christian Voice. 

The purpose of the 21-Day Fast is to unite all believers across the country for prayer and fasting in order to seek God for reconciliation and revival to come to the United States. 

The Day of Remembrance is for people of the faith to repent of racism and division and to know that they can and should do better. 

“When we think about advancing or advocating the African American movement, we want to give them a hand in leadership,” Stevens told Atlanta Christian Voice. “I want the stories and the relationship that I have with the Lord to create a space, where change can happen through prayer.” 

Stevens believes that the 21-Day Fast, leading up to the Day of Remembrance, will ultimately cause the lives of those who participate in it to change, for the glory of God.  

“If you are willing to go on this journey with us, I believe you are going to be different on this journey than when you began,” Stevens told Atlanta Christian Voice.  

“If you are willing to go on this journey with us, I believe you are going to be different on this journey than when you began,” Stevens told Atlanta Christian Voice.  

Stevens also believes that it is the will of God for Americans to repent and reconcile their relationship with God so that they and this country can experience the healing power of God as they seek Him and move forward. 

“God has brought us so far and we can see broadly farther of what God has done and we want to move forward,” Stevens said.
