Pastor Reflections

In these challenging times, we have asked our local pastors to reflect on what Scripture says and how to apply it to the global and national crises surrounding us including civil unrest, racism, protests and demonstrations, and COVID-19.

BISHOP BOB JACKSON

Acts Full Gospel Church

“God loves everybody, regardless of your color. If we could do the same thing, we will have the blessing, we will have the harmony, we will have the peace, and we will have the solidarity that we need to really be Americans.”

DR. TERRENCE NICHOLS

New Hope Church Community
The United Fellowship Church

“Being a person of peace is the Biblical solution to any biasness, brokenness, baseless situation. I understand your anger, but I cannot undergird your actions of destruction. Hate is never the way. Destruction is never the way.”

PASTOR JOEL JONES

Spirit of Truth Church Worldwide

“I’ll tell you the solution. The solution is for America and the world to truly submit to God…The real enemy in all this, is the enemy whom we cannot see. Not the enemy we can see.”

PASTOR BRE JACKSON

Solid Rock Cathedral of Faith Church

“We need the light of Jesus. All of the families around the country today, we need you. George Floyd’s family needs you. Father, we need you.…Lord Jesus, let your light shine.”

 

APOSTLE JEROME DUKES

Community Fellowship Christian Center

“I grew up in an era where we were actually taught how to protest and taught how to demonstrate. The key to it is this: Protests must have a purpose and demonstrations must give an example, and this hasn’t done it…I think that needs to come back again.”

PASTOR DERRICK LOMAX

Living Word Church Of God In Christ

“The events of these past days…has broken our hearts…Our Heavenly Father is able and ready to comfort our hearts, to mend our broken heart, and our broken spirit, and our broken will. Our nation needs to be healed. This world needs to be healed.”
