Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:reader],

Over the past week, I have been grieved by the tragic death of George Floyd and the events that have resulted from it. Having recently walked through our own season of loss, Linda and I understand the pain of losing a son. Mr. Floyd’s death was not only sad, but also inexcusable. His death has once again made us aware of the unhealed wound of racism in North America, and demonstrations around the world remind us that prejudice is not limited to the United States.
Scripture instructs us to “mourn with those who mourn” (Romans 12:15 NIV). Scripture also instructs us to “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute” (Proverbs 31:8-9 NIV).

I join with the general presbyter of North America in denouncing racism in any form and from any source. Through social media, email, and phone calls, our offices have received messages of prayer and concern from all around the world.

As we once again face actions and words that seek to divide us, the Church of God of Prophecy remains committed to the biblical affirmation that every man and woman is made in the image of God. As an all-nations church, let us choose to remain faithful in praying for our leaders and be united in purpose to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.

In the days ahead, my office will prayerfully seek input from an inclusive and diverse group of people to explore how the church can address these issues and become agents of change and reconciliation. In the meantime, please join with me in praying for the Floyd family, those impacted by violence or persecution around the world, for our law enforcement and first responders, and those serving in positions of influence and responsibility within government.

Bishop Sam N. Clements, General Overseer

Crisis is often the catalyst that awakens us to the presence and power of God, and that which moves us to respond to the possibilities of His work and ministry around us. Almost immediately we began to witness compassion, kindness, and service in action from many of our national missions ministries. Before relief from the devastating consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic could be requested and received, national ministries were already distributing food and necessary supplies to their pastors, their people, and those in their communities who were immediately in need. When asked from where the funding had come to respond to the needs, our national ministries responded that they had used their personal allotments (that come at the beginning of the month) to obtain food and necessary supplies to assist the needs of the people. Thankfully, they moved with sacrificial quickness, as most of their nations went into lockdown, many without any national stimulus to assist their people while shutting down earning opportunities in many already impoverished and largely unemployed nations. While it may be difficult for us to recognize the blessings in the midst of the crisis, we have almost immediately become witnesses of the giftings of leadership, ministry, and love—all attributes Christ lived before us and demonstrated in His earthly ministry. May the Lord continue to use and bless these servants of ministry.
