The Jesus Saves Newsletter Historical Journal:
Jesus Saves Ministries strives to uplift our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through the context of the black church and African American experiences, as varied as those experiences may be. We have set out, particularly through our internet ministry, blog, e-newsletters, newsletters, radio show, and now this journal to demonstrate to the next generation of preachers, ministry leaders, church goers and would-be Christians the relevancy of the cross of Jesus Christ in the 21st century.
A goal of this ministry is to foster dialogue, build unity, and draw people to Jesus Christ. Christianity is under attack today like never before. Internally, Christians are divided over the “What would Jesus do?” question were He physically on the earth today. Would He live lavishly or modestly? Would He defend the causes of the underprivileged or of the privileged? Would He side with the conservative right or with the liberal left? Externally, a growing number of Americans now see Christianity not as the only way, but just one of many ways to salvation and eternal life. It behooves this current generation of Christians to begin thinking outside the box and take a more forceful, yet loving stand in accurately communicating the power and sufficiency of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
This journal captures the three years just prior to the 2008 presidential election and the inauguration of the first African American as President of the United States, President Barack Obama. I was fortunate to be employed at the largest black church in the state of Kentucky, St. Stephen Church, and at one of the oldest black-formatted radio stations in the nation, WLOU Radio Station, while attending the oldest historically black college in the state, Simmons College of Kentucky, during that period. Hurricanes Katrina and Rita had devastated New Orleans and the Gulf Coast regions, gas prices rose well above $3.00 per gallon, home foreclosures skyrocketed, an unjustified war raged on foreign soil, and a Republican president with poor approval ratings occupied the White House during this period between August 2005 and July 2008. This is the context within which these Jesus Saves Newsletters were written.
To those who trusted and believed, who saw reason to support Jesus Saves Ministries and/or be counted in the pages of this journal, I say thank you. A special thanks to those benefactors who supported me financially as I matriculated at Simmons College of Kentucky, Archie Dale, Karen Flewellen, and John E. Chowning. Special thanks to Simmons College President Dr. Kevin Cosby, my husband Bill Price, my sons, extended and church family.
