Dear Reconciler Family,
The last couple of months have been busy ones for ORM as we seek to share the message and gospel of Reconciliation. In March I visited the Queen Street Christian Fellowship in Mt. Sterling, KY. I gave the sermon on reconciliation and then interviewed the two pastors in the photo for a broadcast on KCLE Big Country Radio in Dallas, TX (1560 AM); Pastor Vincent Farris, left, and Pastor James Humphries, right.
Comments from Pastor James Humphries:
Curtis, having you here, along with KEAS Christian Methodist Episcopal Church, has been a highlight of our year and has opened doors in our community.
The cooperation and interaction between races and church denominations in Mt. Sterling, KY continued this week as Queen Street Christian Fellowship participated in a Gospel singing event at Evergreen Baptist Church this past Saturday, March 24th. The event was sponsored by the KEAS CME Church. A number of different churches participated in the community event. Queen Street Christian Fellowship took their string band and choir (15 people) and did three musical selections. The event was a great success. The fellowship and interaction that took place was a wonderful thing to be a part of.
The cooperation continued the next day, on Sunday, March 25, as KEAS hosted a special event at 3 p.m. at the Queen Street Christian Fellowship Church. The event was attended by members from a Lexington, KY church and other local churches and individuals from the community. A time of fellowship and refreshments followed the event provided by Queen Street Christian Fellowship.
Note: The KEAS CME Church sanctuary was severely damaged by a storm and is currently being repaired. How pleasing when brethren dwell together in unity and cooperation!
On the weekend of April 21-22, my wife Jannice and I joined the New Creation Community Church in Virginia Beach, Virginia, for their 41st anniversary. We served as Associate Pastor there in the Norfolk area from 1974 to 1979. It was a wonderful experience as we celebrated with a banquet and dance on Saturday evening and told many funny stories of our church experiences. On Sunday we had a lively and meaningful worship service which included the ordination and installation of a new Senior Pastor, Calvin Simon. And a deeply moving experience for me was when one of the main event organizers told the congregation that I was one of the main reasons he stayed in the church. I visited his mon several times when he was 10 years old. One never knows…
All this was made possible by your prayers and support. Thank God for you. May His blessing on you abound.
