Pastor's Letter.....

"30 + Years...To God Be the Glory!"

August 10, 2019

Dear Saints of God,

It is great to be in worship once again.  As you read this letter, I am in worship at the New Macedonia Baptist Church in Washington, D.C.  The pastor of New Macedonia is Rev. Patrick J. Walker.

With the Bud Billiken Parade now behind us, the attention of many will be on “back to school” preparations.  Now is the time to do the necessary things to make sure that your child is ready when the school year begins.  I know for the Chicago Public Schools, the return date is right after Labor Day.  However, there are many suburban schools which will begin their school year much sooner.

Help to prepare your child by reminding them that, for example, they need to begin getting ready for a good night’s rest by gradually reducing the time that they are up at night, and let that time be reasonable, so they can rest well.   As a parent or guardian, you know your child better than I; so do those things that you know will work well in your household.

Today, we welcome to the pulpit our own Rev. Richard C. Keller, who will preach today.  I ask that you pray for him, and with him, as he declares the Gospel of Jesus Christ!  If you “focus” on the message, I am very sure that God has a word especially for you.

Finally, I ask that you pray for our country.  With the rise of gun violence in our nation, let us use the power of prayer that will give us the peace and understanding we need.  2 Chronicles 7:14 clearly reveals God’s word for us to understand:  “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”

I Love You, I Really, Really Do!
