A wonderful weekend at the Institute

On Saturday, October 25, our Ohio chapter, headed by Minister Gerald J. Evans (Minister Lawrance Evans' brother)came to Rochester for the annual trustee meeting/open house. We ate, socialized and learned about the possible changes for the 30th AAFRO Festival in July 2009 in terms of participation and fund raising requirements. The trustees reviewed the past fiscal year financial statements from both the national (Rochester) and Ohio offices.

On Sunday, October 26, Minister Lawrance Evans stressed the importance of using our gifts or talents to build or use for positive purposes. We must be impressed with what a person does with what (s)he has, not just what (s)he says or wears.

Don't forget the Doology workshop this Sunday (Nov 2) at 11 am, 219 Hamilton Street, Rochester NY and the Doology lecture at 4 pm Nov 2, 219 Hamilton Street. The workshop is geared towards doers and the lecture is geared toward followers.

Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr. is now an ancestor!

The Rochester (NY) community and the Elyria (OH) community are saddened by the passing of a distinguished scholar, researcher, community organizer, teacher, case manager, and clergyman, the renowned Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr, who transitioned on Sunday, September 9. from a brief illness.

This morning (September 14, 2018) will be his homegoing service at Aenon Baptist Church, 175 Genesee Street, Rochester NY 14611.

Please keep the Minister's immediate and extended family, and the First Community Interfaith Institute of Rochester and Elyria in your prayers.

= If you are in the Rochester area please pick up a copy of the September 12 edition of the Challenger Community News. On page 2 is a beautiful article that summed up the legacy of this great man. I did not get the permission of the  Challenger Community News to reprint their article, thus, I cannot include it in the blog at this time.
