Walking With Jesus Continues A Second Summer

Enoch walked with God and didn’t see death. Abraham walked with God and became the father of many nations. Moses walked with God and led the Israelites out of Egypt. Conversely, the disciples walked with Jesus on the Emmaus road, and didn’t know it. Are you walking with Jesus this summer?
The Bible says in Micah that there are three things required of us, to do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly before God.

Jesus Saves Ministries is giving away Walking With Jesus gifts a second summer in an effort to share the gospel and encourage Christians in their walk with God. A variety of gift packages include New Testament Bibles, sermons, gospel CDs, books, flip flops, t-shirts, and various Jesus novelties.

Jesus Saves Ministries distributed more than 200 New Testament Bibles the first two weeks of summer, 60 Bibles to Pleasant View Baptist Church and several local churches’ mission trip to Zambia and Johannesburg South Africa, and 20 Bibles to Joshua Tabernacle Baptist Churches upcoming Friends and Family Homecoming Celebration. If you have a special need for New Testament Bibles, contact the ministry.

Walking with Jesus in the sunshine will not only improve your spiritual and physical health, but also will pay off during the dark, rainy times in your life. Walk with Him daily in the Bible and in prayer this summer.

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

Thousands Remember Rev. Louis Coleman

Rev. Angela Lee Price

More than 2,700 people, including many pastors, church, political, civic, and business leaders, paid final respects to First Congregational United Methodist Church pastor and civil rights activist Rev. Louis Coleman on Friday, July 11th after a week of memorial observances. Rev. Coleman,64, died suddenly on Saturday, July 5th at Norton Suburban Hospital after experiencing several seizures.

National civil rights activist and friend Dick Gregory eulogized Coleman, and compared him to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s predecessor Vernon Johns. Referring to the 23rd Psalms, Gregory stated, “Coleman had wisdom. He didn’t walk in Louisville, but through it.”

In the 3-1/2 hour service, an array of people including Mitchell Payne, Rev. Diane Mosby, Ben Richmond, John Johnson, Rev. Clay Calloway, Rev. Dr. Kevin Cosby, Rev. Dr. Walter Malone, Judy Greene, David Tandy, and others presented different perspectives on the impact Coleman’s ministry and activism had on Louisville and the state of Kentucky. A letter was read from State Senator Gerald Neal in his absence.

Mitchell Payne remarked about having to arrest Coleman, his Godfather, once on the grounds of the University of Louisville. Rev. Kevin Cosby gave some of his time to Rev. Clay Calloway, President of the Interdenominational Ministerial Coalition who asked all preachers in the audience to stand in recognition of Coleman’s pastoral and ministerial service.

Referring to the prophet Micah, Cosby stated, “Coleman was a man who practice justice, loved mercy, and walked humbly before God.” Rev. Walter Malone compared Coleman to the prophet Amos stating, “He was a prophet of the truest order, a spokesperson for the oppressed.”
First District Councilwoman Judy Greene stated that the Metro Council will explore changing 34th Street to Rev. Louis Coleman, Jr. Blvd.

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