Approximately 30 people gathered Jan. 20 at the Methodist Building to watch the inauguration of the 44th president of the United States. The group included young and older adults, males and females, blacks, whites and a Hispanic. It represented the diversity of the United Methodist Church.
The election of the first African American president reflects the change taking place in our nation.
The Commission on Religion and Race invites you to share your stories about the change you have seen or would like to see in your community, church or state. Those stories will be compiled to form a booklet for Lent. Articles should be no more than 350 words. Please send to the Rev. Fitzgerald Lovett at Fitzgerald@mississippi-umc.org or the Rev Maxine Bolden at Maxine_bolden@hotmail.com.
