As we continue to live in these unprecedented times, it is clear that the discipline of prayer is absolutely necessary. Many of you know that the remnants of Hurricane Ida, continues to cause devastation. The northeast is the latest affected by storm rains and flooding.
Devastation has hit again, and this time on the home front. This past weekend a ‘Tidal Wave’ of floodwaters overtook Tennesseans in just minutes. To date, 22 people are known to have died as a result, and many others remain missing. Therefore PNBC, we are called to ACTION, and we must act now.
Again, we are called to ACTION. As you may know, the nation of Haiti finds itself in trying times. Political unrest has now been made worse by the recent earthquake, followed by Hurricane Grace. As of now, over 1,400 precious brother and sisters have died as a result of this disaster.
On Monday, August 2nd at 11am EST, PNBC Pastors joined Social Justice Co Chair, Rev. Dr. Freddy Haynes and stood alongside Bishop William Barber and the Poor People’s Campaign in a stand against voter suppression.
On behalf of myself, my wife Lady Sharon Stewart, 1st Vice, Reverend David Peoples, 2nd Vice, Rev. Dr. Keith Byrd, Sr., our General Secretary, Dr. A. Wayne Johnson, and Steering Committee Chair, Dr. Ralph Canty, Sr., I extend a heartfelt thank you to each person that joined us for our 60th Annual Session.
Monday, August 2nd at 11am EST, PNBC churches will gather stand in solidarity with our Social Justice Co Chair, Rev. Dr. Freddy Haynes (Monday & Tuesday) as we stand against voter suppression and advocate for the passing of the John Lewis Voting Rights and For the People Act!
