We've all likely heard the phrase "Jesus Saves" (or seen it displayed on a sign in gold letters along the highway). What does that mean? On this Black History Sunday, we will explore this question by leaning on the wisdom and experience of Black female theologians such as Delores S. Williams and others. And just for fun, we will talk about Satan too.
