Black Caucus Worship – Lynn McClellan
The ABC USA 2017 Biennial opened last night with a rousing, uplifting National Black Caucus worship service. There was joyous music involving all in attendance; several focused prayers; and the message was delivered by Dr. James Forbes, retired pastor of Riverside Church, New York City. Dr. Forbes dealt with our many social and political issues head on – racial, health, immigration, sexual orientation and others – he challenged us to examine the issues, talk about them and ask what God wants to do about them – and how can we join God’s “Dream Team” in their resolution. He referred us to four biblical passages in II Timothy and Acts. A timely message for us as individuals and for ABC USA deliberation.
