Pastor's Letter.....

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

July 15, 2018

Dear Saints of God,

On this third Sunday of July, God has blessed each of us with the opportunity to give praise to God, and to thank God for this day of life.  Sometimes I think that we take rising up in the morning for granted.  In case you don’t know, it was God who allowed us to sleep last night, and then from a state of unconsciousness to that of awaking to see another day, is not anything to take for granted.  So, if you haven’t told the Lord, “thank you for this day, do it now as I read this letter to you.

Today, we celebrate the Wooten Choral Ensemble’s 69th anniversary!  69 consecutive years of music ministry!  Founded in 1949 by the late Dr. Robert Eugene Wooten, this group of dedicated singers has blessed so many across this nation.  Now under the direction of Robert E. Wooten, Jr., and his sister Carol Wooten McDaniel, the Ensemble continues the tradition of excellence, established by their father.  The service begins promptly at 5:00 P.M.  You are encouraged to arrive early.

Again, I want to advise you of the importance of keeping your body hydrated.  We are in the midst of days that are hot and humid.  Please heed to the warnings.  Do a well being check up on our folks that may be in the house; find out if they have fans or cooling units, and whether they are comfortable.

You can go to the mall, or have someone take you to the mall, where it is air-conditioned.  Go to a movie.  In other words, don’t stay in the heat!  Come back to church this afternoon.  Not only will we have cool air, but in addition, the opportunity of enjoying good sacred music.

Regina Brett, in her book God is Always Hiring, gives some food for thought:  “Burying your talents won’t make them grow.” Use your talents for the glory of God!

Finally, let us keep our sick and shut-in, in our prayers.

I Love You!  I Really, Really do!
