Doology: Time for Romance and Finance part 4

Using the Biblical reference of Luke 15:8-9, Minister Evans stressed that you must possess knowledge in order to find anything. We must turn on the light-- we must look at ourselves and focus on ourselves before we look at other people. We must be serious about romance and finance. We must study from books and read people. When we come across a human snake, we must keep a  distance from such people to minimize confusion and minimize conflicts.

Wrapup of Supporters Day: Doology-Time for Romance and Finance part 3

Paying tribute to dear friend and long time Institute supporter/builder  Charles Riley, who joined the ancestors in January 1997, Minister Evans praised Brother Charles' many talents and contributions to the Institute. According to Minister Evans, Brother Charles understood his priorities. He always bought things the Institute needed when he did his personal shopping. He always asked the Minister if he could donate additional funds when the Institute was in need of something urgent. Brother Charles began as a servant to Minister Evans and gradually became a friend of Minister Evans.

Minister Evans  summarized two main points from the last two Sundays: romance is unconditional love, and finance is the ability to manage a medium of exchange. People are our greatest resources, Minister Evans concluded.

Doology: Time for Romance and Finance part two

Minister Evans stated that finance is how a person manages his/her resources. When a person manages his/her business well, everything will fall in place. People who handle their finances successfully recognize the importance of good people in their lives. Women were the first timekeepers.

If you love someone, noted Minister Evans toward the end of service, you treat him/her with respect and don't pimp him/her.

Doology: Time to Understand Finance and Romance

The primary message given by Minister Lawrance Evans to kickoff Black History Month was that the biggest problem facing our people is time. Time is greater than people and money. Being a friend is greater than being a servant. A true friend brings harmony to confusion. The Biblical reference is Luke 15:8-9.
