CHOSEN - FORGIVEN - RESTORED

 
 

CHOSEN - FORGIVEN - RESTORED

God's love has chosen you

God's love forgives you

God's love will restore you

 
HIS LOVE IS WAITING FOR EACH AND EVERYONE OF US
But we must LIVE WIRELESS to appreciate how important it is for our salvation
Cut the cord and dwell in His Image, His Light
No longer allow the boundaries of this earth to
keep you away from HIM.
YOU ARE SPIRIT - YOU ARE WIRELESS!

Over the last 3 nights at VBS we have discussed
The reason for our being, our creation, that sin is sin, none greater or lesser than the other and that caring or helping or giving does require something - there is a price!

These messages have drawn me nearer to a deeper meaning
For the birth of Christ,
His life on earth and His crucifixion.

He came, created in the form of man so that we may know Him;
 His ways, speech, dress ...all tangible, in order that we see and believe.
From woman, He descended to show us,
That ...sin cannot bind you, it has no hold!
 
We must exercise God's favor on our lives...
We share with Him the power to reject satan's temptation.
He did it in the desert –
He proved to us - in His fleshly body, that it CAN be done!!
We can rebuke satan and he WILL flee!

Lastly He paid the price for caring!!
What greater love than the sacrifice? Somebody better shout "hallelujah"!
He had shown us how!!
He has approved the way to the Father!

JESUS' WIRELESS CONNECTION ....

FAITH + HOPE + LOVE

 
This is our 2014 Vacation Bible School Theme.
We are "taking the limits" off and meeting God
in His omnipotent habitat.
 
Eliminating the boundaries that block our FAITH
Breaking down obstacles that prevent HOPE
AND
Pushing pass barriers to express unconditional LOVE 
 
WE WILL LIVE AS DESIGNED - "WIRELESS"

Created With A Purpose - BIO of James Weldon Johnson, author of "THE CREATION"




JAMES WELDON JOHNSON


He also was the first African American author to treat Harlem and Atlanta as subjects in fiction in his genre-crossing novel The Autobiography of an Ex-Coloured Man (1912). As a scholar of African American literature, Johnson edited The Book of American Negro Poetry (1922), the first anthology of African American poetry in English, and for decades a standard text in both English and African American Studies. A pioneering ethno-musicologist, Johnson and J. Rosamond Johnson, his brother and fellow composer, compiled and edited The Book of Negro Spirituals (1925), the first of a two-volume collection of Black sacred songs framed by a jointly authored introduction that traces the genesis and significance of one of the earliest Black art forms in the Americas. Johnson also was the first African American poet to adapt the voice of the Black folk preacher to verse. These poems are gathered in his masterful collection of folk sermons in verse entitled God’s Trombones (1927), one of three collections of verse by Johnson.
A race man and an American with broad intellectual interests, Johnson also is the author of Black Manhattan (1930), a history of African American life and culture in New York, and Along This Way (1933), an autobiography. Johnson distinguished himself in civil rights, diplomacy, education, journalism, law, literature, and music. His many impressive achievements notwithstanding, his place in African American history and culture would be secure if he had composed only in 1900 with J. Rosamond Johnson “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing,” a hymn officially adopted by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and widely sung by African Americans as the Negro National Anthem.


Admired for his able, judicious and creative approach to leadership in an era stained by virulent forms of racism, Johnson, fluent in Spanish and French, was the first African American to serve as the United States consul to Venezuela and Nicaragua. After his period of service in the consular corps, in 1915 Johnson joined the staff of the NAACP. Rising quickly through the leadership ranks, a year later he became the first African American to serve as field secretaryand later as executive secretary of the NAACP. As executive secretary of the NAACP, Johnson organized in Manhattan the historic Silent March of 1917 (above) to protest the national crime of lynching. During his tenure as executive secretary of the NAACP, Johnson also led a national campaign against lynching that garnered significant congressional support in the form of the Dyer Anti-Lynching Bill of 1921, a bill that would have made lynching a national crime, but it failed to become law because of insufficient votes in the Senate. Other significant achievements during Johnson’s tenure as head of the NAACP include the exposure of the brutality of the Marines during the United State’s occupation of Haiti, and the national campaign to support the Houston Martyrs: the soldiers of the 24th U.S. Infantry sentenced to death or life imprisonment for the 1917 uprising in Houston, Texas.
After retiring from his position as head of the NAACP in 1930, Johnson joined the faculty of Fisk University as the Adam K. Spence Professor of Creative Writing. In 1934 he accepted an appointment as Visiting Professor of Creative Writing at New York University, thus becoming the university’s first African American faculty member.  Johnson’s productive and multi-faceted life ended tragically when he was killed in an automobile accident in the summer of 1938 while vacationing in Maine.
Born in the south but a figure of national and international significance, Johnson’s richly lived life marked by remarkable accomplishments, service and leadership merits its own living memorial. Emory’s James Weldon Johnson Institute for Advanced Interdisciplinary Studies is an intellectual project that seeks to capture and reflect the many artistic, scholastic, and humanitarian achievements of Johnson by supporting research that focuses upon the history, evolution and legacy of the modern civil rights movement. Through the establishment of the Johnson Institute, Emory University becomes one of the premiere sites in the nation that supports the research of a new generation of scholars committed to the examination of a social justice movement of which Johnson is a pioneering figure, that is part of our national heritage, and our enduring and dynamic gift to humankind.
