Jesus Saves Response to Blogger Sherre Culbreath

Sherre, Thank you for your comments, We've Got Mail From Blogger Sherre Culbreath. Dr. Freddie Haynes spoke, delivering a powerful word from the Lord, at the Simmons College of Kentucky first Urban Upgrade Church Growth and Leadership Conference held at the Marriott Hotel in downtown Louisville November 11-13, 2007.

Whenever I hear Dr. Haynes speak, I am reminded of the love of God for people of color. Dr. Haynes' message that Tuesday night was profound and stressed the importance of the role of education in uplifting our people. I am glad our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has given him, and men and women of God like him, the mental acumen, desire, and backbone to speak truth to power in the 21st century. If ever we've needed it, we, as our ancestors use to say, "sho do need it now."

I was able to speak with Dr. Haynes briefly after his message that Tuesday night. He remembered our radio conversation Rev. Dr. Freddie Haynes Takes Survey On Black Church as I showed him the Jesus Saves Newsletter in which it appeared. I am grateful he took the time to speak with me on air. I believe it is important for us to get to know what preachers think about the Word of God and issues affecting our people. You can't always get that from a 30-minute sermon, and too many preachers nowadays, as Dr. Freddie Haynes said in my interview with him, are "playing games with the gospel."

Thanks for blogging with Jesus Saves Ministries.

Rev. Angela Lee Price

Remember, it is not Mohammad, Buddha, Confucius, nor New Age that saves. Jesus Saves!
