"The Meaning of Resurrection" on April 20

The public is invited to the annual Resurrection service on Sunday, April 20, 2014 ( 4 : 00
pm) at First Community Interfaith Institute Inc., 219 Hamilton Street, Rochester NY,
14620 . The annual rhetorical presentation is "The Meaning of Resurrection." The
rhetorician will be the National Minister of First Community Interfaith Institute Inc.,
Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr. Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr. is the founder of First
Community Interfaith Institute Inc., the major financial supporter of the Charles Riley
Tutorial Program and the Developer of a discipline called DOOLOGY.

Minister Lawrance Lee Evans will demonstrate how different meanings of Christ's death
and resurrection can be amicably presented without the often opinionated controversies
and theologies. Minister Evans will pronounce how the subject of resurrection can serve
as a vehicle of amour propre (self-esteem).

"The Meaning of Resurrection" has special significance for the city of Rochester, where
too often the city is described (by too many) as a place of poverty, homelessness,
academic underachievement and barren of skills. "Can any good thing come out of
Rochester (Nazareth)?" Minister Lawrance Lee Evans Sr., on April 20, 2014 (4 pm) will
answer the question: "Can we germinate enfranchisement where there are
disenfranchisement by negative prognoses by those who benefit from the exploitation of
the downtrodden? How can the 'good news' emerge from Nazareth (Rochester)??"

First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. is a spiritual and cultural organization, plus a
teaching church. The Institute is known for its after school programs, mentorship and
cultural programs. First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. Is located in the South
Wedge.
                                                                 ###
Note: dinner will be served during the program. The "Meaning of Resurrection" is part of our extended Kwanzaa Appeal fundraiser, which concludes on April 30.

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.
