Min. Angela Lee Price Will Be Guest On Simmons Saturday Morning Solutions Tomorrow

Jesus Saves Ministries is helping former felons regain their civil rights including the right to vote. I will be a guest on the Simmons Saturday Morning Solutions Show tomorrow at 11:00 AM on 1350 WLOU to talk about this initiative. Please consider joining me, St. Stephen Church, and the Department of Corrections in this effort. As you know there are many individuals who have turned their lives around. They are serving in the church in ministry and are doing the right thing. However, their past is still haunting them.
A deacon at Bates Memorial Baptist Church completed a Restoration of Civil Rights application just yesterday, returned it to me, and shared his testimony. He is the kind of person I am speaking about, hard-working, committed to service, loves the Lord, yet haunted by something that happened 20 years ago. I have told him and so many others that Jesus Christ is a God of reconciliation. When He does something, He doesn’t do it half way. He is not mediocre in His deliverance. He is able to break the shackles that bind our people to low-paying jobs, poverty, and despair. I am a living witness.

So many people have misconception about felony offenses -- they are for violent crimes, murder, rape and the like. This simply is not the case. Writing bad checks can lead to felony convictions. There are white collar crimes as well that can lead to felony convictions. As quite as it is kept, people in other communities with resources who commit those crimes are getting their records expunged and rights restored everyday. Regaining their civil rights is one way former felons can show potential employers they are taking initiatives to become productive citizens. Another way is through criminal record expungement, another initiative about which I am passionate. Please help us help those whom the Lord wants restored within our communities. If we don’t do it, who will?

If you know of someone who has completed parole or probation and has paid fines and restitutions, please give them my name and number. I will follow up with them. I can be reach weekday afternoons at WLOU Radio between 3:00-6:00 p.m. at 776-1350. You can e-mail me anytime at, or contact me at St. Stephen Church at Join me tomorrow on Simmons Saturday Morning Solutions to learn more about restoration of civil rights.

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

St. Stephen East Celebrates Women's Day 2008 At Dosker Manor

A packed church participated in Women’s Day Service at St. Stephen East at Dosker Manor on Sunday, March 30th. The Dosker Manor Women’s Day Choir lead the congregation in praise and worship with two opening selections. Women’s Day Choir members wore red as did many women in the congregation. Many men supported the women on their day with the Lord.

Guest psalmist Barbara Trammell sang two songs including the pre-sermonic selection, “Not For the Miracles.” Rev. Syvoskia Bray introduced me as Women’s Day speaker.

My message was entitled, “The Power to Communicate,” based on Ephesians 6:12-14. I told the congregation that there is a strong connection between communication and spiritual warfare, that if we want the power to communicate effectively as Christians we need to 1) recognize they are in a spiritual battle; 2) stand up for truth, and, as Spike Lee has said; 3) do the right thing.

Pastor Rev. Blanche Hayden extended the invitation to except Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Pastor George Hayden counseled members of the congregation at the end of service. There was a reception after the service. The men helped in the kitchen, including Pastor Hayden.

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