Summers are made for Memories: What do you Remember Fondly about the summers of your life?
In a recent staff meeting, I was asked to participate in an ice-breaker by sharing a favorite summer memory. At that time, I shared excitedly about summers growing up in Jamaica when the days seemed long and endless, and we would play until the “peeny wallies” (fireflies) came out. In other words, until it was pitch dark! Then, no parent or guardian worried about their children’...Read Full Post »

A Reunion with the Past: Reflections, Revelations, and Results
In May 2019, I had the privilege of participating in my 40th high-school reunion. The reunion theme “Reunited and It Feels So Good” was spot on and fitting for the event. Like all other graduates participating in this event, I flew to Jamaica for this three day jam-packed reunion. The trip started with the usual jitters about the event - excitement about seeing old friends, some apprehension about reconnecting w...Read Full Post »

The Power of Forgiveness
Pastor Emanuel Williams
Forgiveness is an act of favor, compassion or love that can free a person from guilt and its consequences with the aim of restoring a broken personal relationship between two opposing parties.
Bible Verse: Forgive us our debts as we also have forgiven our debtors. For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sin...Read Full Post »

Black History and Heart Health Month Blog
Black History Month: Love, Heart Health, and Black Migration
February is traditionally observed as the “Month of Love” and the time in which we celebrate Valentine’s Day. February, however, has also been designated as Black History Month and Heart health month. As I considered this month’s blog, it occurred to me that all these observances have a few things in common, love and the heart. Love and the heart you as...Read Full Post »

Purging, Purifying and Refining Us in 2019
Happy New Year to all of our readers, I hope that you are enjoying the year so far.

Yes, indeed, 2019 is moving at breakneck speed and I can’t believe that we are already celebrating MLK Junior Day. As usual, I wanted to take some time at the beginning of the year to do some reflection and to challenge each of us to s...Read Full Post »

Reflecting on 2018: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
As I sit listening to the firecrackers, it seems unreal that we are getting ready to celebrate the New Year. After all, I still can’t believe that we are at the end of 2018. How quickly the year has slipped by, and what a rollercoaster year it has been. Given all of what has happened this year, I face the next few hours with mixed emotions. First, I am eternally grateful to God for his provision, direction, protection, grace...Read Full Post »
