We present the series Ministers for Peace with the message from our President Bishop Craig A. Worsham during this difficult times:
Bishop Craig A. Worsham:
"You see, in the book of Exodus, God gave a strategy to Moses to lead the people from the oppressive hand of Pharaoh. God gave him a strategy to lead the people out. And what we're seeing in our city, what we're seeing in our nation is an outcry of folks who want freedom and justice.
I come to tell you today, the community is mad as hell. Bishop Worsham
"So I say to every believer, I say to every saint, you can have your opinions about what's going on in the streets of our communities, the protesting, the rioting, the marching, you can have your opinions, but let us not become desensitized to the pain and the anger that thousands are feeling across this nation.
"We watched through every media outlet, every news outlet, every social media platform, we watched a black man lynched at the knee of a racist law enforcement officer.
"I come to tell you today, the community is mad as hell. And as a man of God, as a senior pastor, as a bishop in the Lord's church, I am not desensitized to the pain the people are feeling across this nation.
