My pastor believes in hitting the streets the 5th Sunday of every month. Neil and I were supposed to spend the night in Dothan Saturday and get home some time on Sunday. However, Neil decided he was up to driving so we pressed in and made it all the way Saturday. As we were driving through Alabama he said he couldn’t wait to get to church in the morning.
When Brother David made the announcement we were going to be the church instead of having church Neil’s head dropped; as he knew it wasn’t a coincidence we were there. One of his siblings was supposed to sign divorce papers Monday and he knew we needed to reach out to their entire family and pray with them.
That evening, I attended Mission Mississippi with my mom. Tupelo has been trying to have a community gathering since the last officer involved shooting. The speaker had a much needed message of racial reconciliation for our community.
As I am reflecting, I am seeing the need to pray for unity. For the unity of families, races, communities, churches, the list goes on and on! Please join me in praying for unity across the board!
