The Struggle is Not For Crybabies, parts two and three

On March 8, Minister Evans used the story of Jesus walking on water (Biblical reference of Matthew 15) to compare the fear of Jesus' disciples to our modern day fear of handling our personal issues.The opposite sexes cannot use each other as an excuse not to take care of business. Minister Evans used the late Sister Siti Akanke as an example of a woman who took care of home and the Institute. Three months before she joined the ancestors, she donated $3000 to the Institute. From 1979 when she came to the Institute to 2005 when she passed, Sister Siti was committed to the liberation struggle and was a devoted student of Doology. We must confront our problems using Doology.

On March 15, Minister Evans noted that God put us on earth to make things better. Our goal is to make the world better using our God given skills and talents.  We owe so much to the ancestors when we are born. Minister Evans used personal examples of people who he had helped over the years at the Institute who used various "excuses" not to give back to the Institute once they got the assistance they needed. We must show gratitude when people help you.

Hot off the press: Doology: My Meditations and Inspirations from Minister Lawrance Lee Evans is available

Minister Lawrance Lee Evans, Sr. 's legacy is finally out in a book format.  One of his adult students, Sister Brenda Snow, active in the Institute for three years, was so inspired by Minister Evans' lessons and the audio lessons of his late queen, Minister Akilah Ife, that she decided to write her debut book Doology: My Meditations and Inspirations from Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr.  The book is now available for purchase for $15.00 USD. A prolific writer, Sister Snow uses various Biblical verses to express her love for the Evans family and explain the discipline of Doology. Sister Brenda is currently interning with Minister Evans for one year in preparation to become a minister in her own right.

Here is a link to the order form that you can download and print to order the book:
