Dear Reconciler Family,
It’s hard to believe we’re in the month of December and another year is approaching. This new year begins 16 years of successful ministry! Thank you for your loyal support in helping make it happen.
During the month of November Jannice and I had the opportunity to share in the Annual Outreach Event of the Montgomery, Alabama congregation. It was a lively and worshipful celebration! The congregation put on an inspiring program of songs, music, mimes, skits, etc., and the community attendees seemed to thoroughly enjoy it.
I gave the sermon on the topic of “Reconciliation.” It was followed by a delicious meal! The congregation has had several baptisms of guests who have attended the event. Go Montgomery and Pastors James Lewis and Arthur Carlisle!
We also had the opportunity to visit the Southern Poverty Law Center which tracks and identifies hate groups throughout the country. Jannice and I also had the opportunity to visit Freedom Church in Georgia. I gave the sermon on the topic of “Change,” as they have just had a change in pastors. The new pastor is Lance McKinnon. The sermon was well received, and many asked us to come back and me to speak again. Several members are ORM supporters.
I would like to wish you all a wonderful time of Advent celebrations and a Merry and meaningful Christmas! What a magnificent gift God gave us – His Son!
Thank you again for your prayers and support as we enter a new year. We are looking forward to some exciting opportunities that are currently in the making! We are seeking God’s guidance as we proceed.
Love and blessings,
PS: I just received a message from Director of Community Oriented Policing (COPS) Bernard Melekian of the U. S. Justice Department inviting me to participate in a conference on “Racial Reconciliation and Police Legitimacy” on January 11, 2012. It involves police and community relations. Please pray that God would guide this event and my participation in it. Thank you!
