Historical Moment

Bishop Vashti McKenzie is assigned to the 13th Episcopal District. When she convenes the first of her series of Annual Conferences, this will be an historical moment. It will be the first time a female AME Bishop will oversee a conference in the US. I am considering atternding this first conference. What are your thoughts?

Parson Paris -

Enjoy Nashville! I look forward to working with Bishop McKenzie when I visit the Music City for the Christian Ed Meetings in the Spring of each year. QED

Rev. Paris Putting historical symbols aside. Bishop McKenzie I believe will articulate a vision with the steps she sees to realize change. If this occurs than something more important than a female Bishop arrived. This will be the day the Church Changed Directions in the 13th Episcopal District. I wish Madam President (Bishop Vashti) the blessing of God on her leadership.

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!" He said, "Go and tell this people: "'Be ever hearing, but never understanding;be ever seeing, but never perceiving.' Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed." Then I said, "For how long, O Lord?" And he answered: "Until the cities lie ruined and without inhabitant,until the houses are left deserted and the fields ruined and ravaged, until the LORD has sent everyone far away and the land is utterly forsaken. And though a tenth remains in the land,it will again be laid waste.But as the terebinth and oak leave stumps when they are cut down,so the holy seed will be the stump in the land." Isa 6:8-13 NIV

In Love,
