Happenings on the Jesus Saves Social Network - March 6, 2015

Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Bloody Sunday, the Selma-to-Montgomery March, & Enactment of the Voting Rights Act of 1965
By:  Angela Lee Price

This weekend marks the 50th anniversary of the March from Selma to Montgomery which led to the Voting Rights Act of 1965. This  major historic occasion should not be overlooked. As many are aware, Jesus Saves Ministries served for 10 years in the church and local community empowering more than 1,000 Kentucky citizens with the vote through voter registration campaigns. We directly assisted some 40 former felons in Kentucky in regaining their voting rights, and we assisted the Louisville branch NAACP in helping more than 100 former felons regain their voting rights enabling them to vote in the 2008 Presidential election. We encourage you to research the events that occurred over the course of the entire month of March 1965 in the marches from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama.  People died and many more put themselves in harms way fighting for the vote, a right that too many people now-days take for granted.


Commemorating the 50th anniversary of Selma is about saying thank you to God and to our forefathers, those brave men and women, black and some white, who stood up for justice and for our dignity and right to be treated equally at the ballot box; secondly, its about remembering that people died securing voting rights for this and future generations of African Americans and people of color, and hopefully in doing those two things, we will be more responsible in doing what we ought to do, and that is VOTE in upcoming elections.  Whenever  African Americans don't vote, we trample on the graves of all those who died on March 7, 1965, on  Bloody Sunday, all those who were beaten and jailed, and all those who gave generously of their time, talent, and resources in non-violent protests securing this important civil right due every citizen of these United States.

  Join Us for Fasting and Prayer Each Wednesday During Lent
"But ye are a chosen general, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praise of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light;"

 1 Peter 2:9.
Lent is 40 days of fasting and repentance in preparation for Resurrection Sunday (Easter), this year on Sunday, April 5th. The six Sundays in Lent are not counted among the 40 days of lent as each Sunday represents a "mini-Easter," a celebration of Jesus' victory over sin and death.

Beginning Wednesday, February 25th - Wednesday through Wednesday, April 1st, we invite you to join us in a full or partial food fast (your preference).  If you cannot participate in a full or partial food fast, then consider giving up something very important to you for 12 hours on Wednesdays, (junk food and sweets, shopping, cell phone, computer, television, text messaging, caffeine, etc.) and give that time to the Lord in prayer, Scripture meditation, or by participating in a Bible study.  If Wednesday is not a good day for you, choose a day on which you feel you will be able to fast consistently during the Lent season.  Be ye holy even as God is holy! Your are a royal priesthood, a chosen generation!  
Important Dates: 
February 18 - Ash Wednesday 
•March 29 - Palm Sunday
•April 2 - Maundy (Holy) Thursday 
•April 3 - Good Friday 
•April 5 - Easter Sunday
