Have We Forgotten?
The month of February has been traditionally the month in which people of African descent reflect on their heritage. Unfortunately, most of the focus has to do with the civil rights movement of the 1960's.
But have we forgotten that our foreparents were once slaves? Have we forgotten the wisdom that God gave them to survive? Have we forgotten that they came from rich nations, ruled by great kings and queens?
The freedom that we enjoy now did not come because of the sacrifices of some wonderful people in the 60's and 70's. Their contributions should not be ignored but the power source was then, and has always been, our Great God!
Have we forgotten that all those movements started in the church? Now that we are free, have we forgotten that the church is still vital to our people?
Yes, we have forgotten. Our church attendance lets me know that we have forgotten.
