"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.

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:
