THE WORD FROM THE PASTOR - SEPTEMBER 8, 2019
I think that the highlight of the meeting of the National Baptist Convention USA, Inc. in New Orleans this past week was the election of the Reverend Jerry Young to serve his term as President. His re-election was not a surprise—there were no other contending candidates for the office. I ask you now to join me in prayer for him and the Convention as he presides over the next five years. These years are critical.
Looking at our own life here at White Rock, our annual efforts of recommitment to Christ have begun. I ask us to prayerfully prepare to pack out the drama of our submission to God by beginning our preparations for Bible Reading. This year the Bible Reading takes a different schedule and have the added emphasis. Let us begin our reading on Wednesday, September 25, continuing reading for four consecutive Wednesdays and concluding those Wednesdays with our reading on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, October 2, 9, 14, 15 and 16. I call up our Sheepfolds and Auxiliaries to choose/recruit and to volunteer for public readings now. I encourage all to read along selected passages as we read through the entire Bible. We will conclude each day of reading with prayer and discussions. May God strengthen us in and by His word. Both written and in the flesh.
God’s grace and peace be multiplied unto you. . .
Joy! We are one in the Lord.
