Praise the Lord to the Miracle Temple Family and the people of God everywhere.
 
I greet you all in the Matchless Name of Jesus Christ.
 

February marks a time where we as a country highlight the rich, but painful history of Black Americans. We reflect on the many accomplishments that have benefited humanity, with creative credit being traced back to the enslaved ancestors— many of the inventions, as well as the innovations and improvements to things that were already in use.

 

Although we can take pride in our advancements, we cannot overlook or forget about the mistreatment and inequality that still exists in our world. As we take time to honor our civil rights leaders past and present, let us also keep alive the need to advance our cause of justice and liberty for all. Let us hold those accountable who oppose this right. Accountable for their deeds and actions or inactions in some cases. Let’s continue to cry aloud and bring attention to the plight of the people of color in our society.

 

This is not meant to be a discouraging editorial, but rather a piece to remind us that there is yet work to be done if we want to see change in how we are treated. If not for our sake, then for the sake of the generations that follow.

 

Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. (Isaiah 1:17)

Until our next communication,
