This month, Palestine will be celebrating its 45th Church Anniversary. The theme is "Rooted In Faith....Honoring Our Legacy, Hebrews 11:1-13.

The kickoff for our celebration will be "Keep Calm and Praise" to be held on Saturday, March 8th at 4:00pm at Palestine M.B.C., 15787 Wyoming Avenue in Detroit. We will be praising God for all of our blessing through music, song, dance and The Word.

For I am about to do a brand-new thing. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? (Isaiah 43:19a, NLT) Sometimes we don't see it because we are not looking. Circumstances can certainly make us miss the great things that the Lord is doing in our lives. There are some things in my own life that are not going quite the way that I would want them too. But in the midst of all of these things I am still so in awe of God because I can still see His hand working in my life.

Hosea 2:14 is the voice of love: Therefore I am now going to allure her; I will lead her into the desert and speak tenderly to her. The allurement of love is stronger than all other forces. All this finds its fulfilment in Jesus. In love, he came to earth to seek and save sinners. The price he paid to set us free from the slavery of sin is a price only divinity could pay. It is no threat of hell that saves the sinner. What allures our souls to God, what finally breaks the resistance of our sin, is the knowledge that God loves us.

The call to pursue God is the primary call of our lives. To place it as a lower priority in our daily experience is to sin against the One who gives us life and breath.

The role of being a Pastor and a Pastor's Wife carries such a major responsibility that we can often lose focus of our roles as husband and wife. We take seriously the saving of souls and watching over the lives that God has entrusted to our care. However, I believe the saving of our marriages and watching for the souls of our children that God has entrusted to our care is just as important. As we all know, marriage was the first institution God created and then children. The family is the first church. I believe God applauds the building of this Ministry as much, if not more, as the building of our Church. I know this first hand because in the early stages of ministry development, I remember being so hungry for the things of God and wanting to run out and save the world but God spoke clearly to me and refocused my priorities. I was trying to get to this meeting out of town and He said, "I'm not impressed with you running after ministry, or anything, at the neglect of your family.

"I'm not a preacher. I haven't been to Bible college or seminary. How can I read and study the Bible profitably?" You can, because you don't need to do it on your own.
