Part 2 of Black History program presented

Good Morning / Evening!

Sunday School lesson got me to thinking about things we say without thinking first. Speech and Conflict plus Controlling your Tongue! People will tell you to speak what is on your mind, and that is good if you are speaking to a psychiatrist; and then some will say speak from your heart; but if your words cause undue hurt and disturbances, then it is time to check yourself as to your relationship with God!

The stronger it is the better use of your speaking will be. I know you can rebuke, correct and do other things with words, but it is always supposed to be done in the spirit of love, to help someone, not to tear them down or make them feel insignificant to yourself.

Don’t speak well of me in church and then if I see you in Walmart you act like you don’t know me, and not even say hello. Don’t let your tongue or mind show the split in it!

Pastor Henderson’s sermon came from Isaiah 46:3-4; subject - “God Will Take Care of You”.

Our young people gave us part two of their Black History observance; starting with their rendition of “Wade In The Water”, led by Ms. Princess Moncrief and then we were favored by Ms. Tybresia and Ms. Kyia Ruffin, and Ms. Te’aria Young with the song “Glory”.

We are so pleased with our young people and what God is doing in them. Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children.”
