THE PEOPLE OF GOD: PRAYING FOR ONE ANOTHER - By Rev. Dr. Thomas D. Johnson, Sr.
Confess your trespasses to one another, and prayer for one another, that you may be healed. So reads James 5:16.
The People of God: Praying for one another is the theme adopted by our congregation during the mid-year church wide meeting. I was inspired to recommend this theme because I sincerely believe prayer to be the means by which so many of our problems will be resolved. This text in the Epistle of James is one of many admonitions found in scripture that call the people of God to prayer. I have no doubt this most congregations consider themselves to be praying churches. However, my observation has been that many of our prayers have become petitions for our own wants and needs with little concern the needs of others. read entire message >>
The Canaan Baptist Church of Christ Coronavirus Task Force recommends the practice of “social distancing” during the coronavirus threat. “Social Distancing,” means creating ways to increase distance between individuals in settings where people commonly come into close contact with one another.
Recommendations by the Center For Disease Control (CDC):
1. Hand hygiene - wash your hands with soap and water frequently and thoroughly for at least 20 seconds. Use hand rubs, gels, foams, or pre-moistened towelettes with 60%-95% alcohol. Also, use hand sanitizers when available.
2. Cough-etiquette—cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you do not have a tissue, cough and/or sneeze into your upper sleeve, or the space in between your elbow – but not into your hands. Properly dispose of used tissues
3. Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects
4. If you have symptoms such as coughing, fever and/or sore throat, stay home and designate a care provider to assist and check on you.
5. Keep up healthy habits that will boost your immune system a. Keep immunizations current b. Eat healthy c. Exercise d. Rest e. Attempt to reduce stress
If you have pre-existing health conditions such as asthma, a weak immune system and/or high blood pressure, please take the necessary precautions to ensure your health by wearing latex gloves in public spaces and other preventative items mentioned in this awareness packet.
Follow the directives of your doctor, local public health department and advisors.

REV. AL SHARPTON ON THE PASSING OF WYATT TEE WALKER, THE FIRST CHAIRMAN OF NATIONAL ACTION NETWORK (NAN) AND FORMER CHIEF OF STAFF TO DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
“The passing of Dr. Wyatt Tee Walker marks the transition of one of one of the greatest social justice and theological minds of our time. Walker was the first Chairman of the National Action Network and a man that mentored me as a civil rights and social justice leader, and while I am saddened by his passing, I am committed to carrying on his legacy. It is both a personal and global loss to me. May he rest in peace.”
