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 >>

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.”
