Rev. Syvoskia Bray Pope was ordained in the Disciples of Christ denomination on Sunday, June 28th at St. Stephen UCC. Co-Pastor LaVonda Webber, House of Faith Church of Christ was the speaker. She spoke from Habakkuk Chapter 2 from the subject, "Follow the Vision."
Rev.Syvoskia is pastor of New Century Fellowship Christian Church. Rev. Yvonne McCoy, right, gave words of encouragement, and I rendered the New Testament reading. We are excited for what God is doing in her life, and ministry! We salute and congratulate Rev. Syvoskia!
Jonathan and Brittany, our son, the avid University of Kentucky fan, and new daughter-in-law were married on Saturday, June 20th on the front grounds of the historic Conrad-Caldwell House in Old Louisville. Their daughter, Carmen was the flower girl. Rev. James Booker, Pastor, Kenwood Northeast Missionary Baptist Church, Crestwood, KY performed the ceremony. Jonathan and Brittany jumped the broom, a nice touch. Our son, Brandon was one of the groomsmen. A reception followed with family and close friends. It was a beautiful wedding! Congratulations to the happy newlyweds.
Happy 4th of July weekend. May the Lord be with you as you spend quality time with family and friends. Let us not forget amongst the festivities and fireworks to spend quality time with God in studying and meditating on His word, in prayer for liberty and justice for all. So much has happened over the last month. We truly need the Lord to be our guiding light in this dark world! We need the Lord like never before, as the book of Micah says to administer justice as only He can. He is the same yesterday, today, and forevermore.
We have another wonderful opportunity to witness this holiday, not so much to those we don't know, but to our very own cousins, aunts, uncles, step-relatives and in-laws who don't know the Lord. Don't let the devil trip you up into getting into theological debates, and arguments over recent court rulings, violence, and hate crimes to keep you from being used of God to minister with gentleness, kindness, truth, and love to a hurting soul in your midst. Jesus is the answer for their problems. He is the way, truth, and the life. He is our hope for tomorrow! Jesus saves!
