  A Message from The Chair:  

2016-2017 Theme: Unity in a Changing World





 Well, we are here again celebrating Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent.  


 On this past fourth Sunday in February I had the good fortune to be at the early service at Mount Zion Baptist Church where Rev. Aaron Williams is the Senior Pastor.  For about a year I have been driving my neighbor to Mount Zion twice a month to the 7:30 AM service.  Since this is the beginning of Lent, Pastor Williams has written and created a “Devotional and Fasting Guide” that was passed out after service.  As I flipped through the pages of the guide, a 40-day devotional that is easy to read and understand. It is written to help you through your journey of the 40 days of fasting (modified diet) and prayer.  I found myself mentally taking note of how I was going to approach Lent this year and what sacrifice am I willing to put on the altar; let go and let God?  The biggest challenge for me (and I must be honest with myself) is following through to the end with whatever I decide to do for Lent.   In the introduction, Pastor Williams states “It is a time of self-examination and reflection”.


 I can’t even begin to count how many times I have started and stopped on many things - always begun with good intentions to see them through to the end.  I know that I am not alone in this challenge.  But one thing that I do know is that with much prayer comes much power.  This power leads me to make necessary changes in my life and helps me to discover not only what I need to do, but also how I can be a motivator for others.  Change does not need to be hard, but it is necessary for growth.  That is the challenge.



 Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns at pbl.deacon@hotmail.com



 Thank you, and God Bless -
