The Struggle is not for Crybabies

Adults must be able to communicate to each other by not crying. Using Jesus' disciples as an example, Minister Evans noted that too often we cry to the wrong people, instead of seeking the proper help. Our heroes and sheroes (e.g., Carter G. Woodson, Harriet Tubman, Mary McLeod Bethune, Booker T. Washington) were not crybabies, Minister Evans stressed. When they found themselves in a difficult situation, they went on ahead with whatever resources they had and worked to the best of their ability. Crying does not solve your problems. A crybaby mentality prevents us from being involved in organizations. You must spend time with positive people in the community to counteract the negative people in the community.

Reader, you are invited to celebrate the Week of Remembrance in Honor of Sister Siti Akanke from May 8-14.

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.
