Black History month book Review and Study -

The Cross and the Lynching Tree by James H. Cone:

You are invited to read and reflect on this Masterpiece during Black History month through Lent.  I'm hopeful that at the completion of this study, we can visit the Lynching Museum in Montgomery, Alabama as part of our 150 Church Anniversary History Tour.

Some excerpts from the book:

While the lynching tree symbolized white power and "black death", the cross symbolized divine power and "black life" - God overcoming the power of sin and death.

African Americans did not doubt that their lives were filled with trouble.... and agony during the lynching era (1880-1940).  Trouble followed them everywhere.... But in songs like "Nobody Knows",.... sung as "blues" or the "church" version, the last line, "Glory Hallelujah" speaks of hope that trouble would not sink them into permanent despair.  "Nobody knows the trouble I see, Nobody but Jesus.... Glory Hallelujah"....: The source of hope is Jesus, for he is a friend who knows about the trouble of little ones and is the reason for their Hallelujah.

I hope and pray you (late teens, young adults to seniors) will join me (Pastor James) for this study and reflection beginning 1st Sunday February.  Please see Minister Britt to order your book & copy of the work booklet.

Review/Study Dates - 1st Sunday February through Palm Sunday: 8:45am Church; 12:15pm Renaissance Center - Blue Room

2017-18 Theme:  “Saved to Love”

GOAL:  Develop a Culture of Love for Each Other

Scriptures to meditate on, memorize and implement through 2018

     Leviticus 19:17-18

     Mark 12:28-34

     Luke 10:25-28

     Deuteronomy 6:1-9

     Micah 6:8

How does this look like in practice?

How do we internalize this Love that God requires of us?

How do we express it externally?

What does Love look like as it is practiced in the ministries?

Love in the congregation, members, and ministries.

                WHAT DOES LOVE MEAN?

You are challenged to pray more, and more earnestly during this first Month of the New Year.  By Prayer God will launch and lift you into the orbit of His Grace needed for the Journey of 2018.
