On this day, and the 5th Sunday of each month (4 times per year), our church takes the time to celebrate and acknowledge the gifts of our youth. Their strengths, gifts, abilities and knowledge can be inspiring and uplifting for all to see and experience. I am particularly grateful to see all age groups being used by God and growing in confidence through public speaking, signing of songs images (70)and reciting Scripture.

Be a supporter of our youth…you’ll be glad that you did.

1 Timothy 4:12 – “Neglect not the gift that is within thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.”

A few weeks ago, we initiated our 2014 summer preaching series – The Power of Your Words. This series of teaching is intended to help us to be selective about choosing our words. Through the life of Billy Graham, a man who preached before more people in history, we can better understand that the power of our words have a lifelong effect on others. Be careful!!

Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose. – Proverbs 18:21 (The Message)

Today, we honor and give thanks to ALL of our fallen hero’s who served proudly in the United Stated Armed Forces. I salute you today, and everyday, for your great sacrifice to keep us safe.

God bless America!!

Today, we all celebrate and acknowledge the National Day of Prayer. Throughout this day, remember: 1 Thess 5:7 ==>

Pray without ceasing.”

What will you pray for??

This weekend culminated into SEVERAL simultaneous events and I was forced to choose amongst them.

For starters , my eldest son’s acceptance to Morehouse College (Atlanta, Ga) means that he must (should) attend the annual “Accepted Students Weekend.” Since a parent must attend as well, guess where I am? This weekend is also the annual VCU Alumni Reunion weekend in Richmond, VA. Guess where I am not?

Oh, it gets fun…Tonight, my two older sons are escorts at a black tie event in Baltimore, MD. Guess who’s driving them there to make sure all is well? Sunday morning, I preach the word at church at 10am, then pick up the sons in Baltimore, drop them off at home, then I am off to Dulles International Airport to travel to Europe for a job-related assignment. I return to the states on Good Friday. Oh, since I have been gone over the past couple of days juggling priorities, I do have to stop by the office for a couple of hours to prepare for the European trip.

Did I mention picking up taxes today? Oops…need to do that too and sign and mail them by the 15th.

Hears the good news…I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! – Phil 4:13

You can too!!

Today, we concluded a 3-month long teaching series titled “The God-Kind of Love.” In its two forms, we learned that our love that resides on the inside must be visibly seen on the outside. To this end, be sure to show others (thru actions, words and deeds) that we love them as God loves us. We can make this world a much better place through our love. 1Corinthians 13 clearly shows that love is the key ingredient and will overcome all of the ills of this world.

Demonstrate your love today!!
