An Honor to Spread the Word

main image

During the week of October 24th-30th, I was honored to accept two invitations to speak. The first, an invitation to participate in services with the Racine Wisconsin Fall Pastor’s Association. I thank the Association's President, Rev. Keith T. Evans, pastor of the Greater Mt. Eagle Baptist Church and Moderator Rev. Melvin Hargrove, who represented the Wisconsin Pastor’s Association. It was a tremendous honor to preach on the topic of the Black church and to share passages from "The Black Church Relevant or Irrelevant in the 21st Century."

My second opportunity to share the word was with the members of the John Wesley United Methodist Church, in Greenville, South Carolina.  John Wesley UMC is the oldest historically black United Methodist Church in Greenville, South Carolina. My sincere thanks to  Rev. Dr. Daniel Hembree for his invitation to lecture and preach. I was honored that Rev. Hembree and his church members selected my book to be their primary focus for their 156th church celebration. The discussion regarding the Black church and the worship service was incredibly uplifting and inspiring. To God be the glory!

Praise is a poet's rhapsody, full of admiration for a guardian whose reckless love has saved their life/soul.
A symphony of voices singing Let everything that has breath Praise the Lord
Praise is a young child's prayer thanking the Lord at night before bed
It is the twirls and jumps of dancers and the bold expressions of mimes telling the story of deliverance
Praise is the joining of a congregation coming to celebrate their blessings and the release from tribulations
Praise is extending a hand to a sister in Christ pulling her out of her stupor, It's giving your brother the strength to carry on
To push forward and don't give up 
Praise is spreading love to those who are considered undesirable
Praise is calling out to God even when things are rough because while I breathe , I hope 
And I as long as I have breath in my body, I will glorify him in every way I can.
Declaring him the One and Only ruler of My Soul 
Because as Psalms 71:8 says:"My mouth is filled with your praise,
declaring your splendor all day long".
This is an original poem written by Ms. Demetria George on Saturday, August 3, 2019 for a special service at the Historic First Baptist Church.

Bible Study for Busy Pastor’s and Ministers

main image

An exert from the book:

Pastors and ministers have one of the most challenging jobs on earth. Of all their tasks, one responsibility they cannot neglect is teaching the word of God. Unfortunately, church leaders seldom have enough time to prepare Bible studies for their congregations. This book is a quick resource to help fill the gap. These thematically arranged Bible studies each contain an introduction to a topic and a list of relevant Scripture readings for that topic. Pastors can use the introduction to spark discussion within small groups or to focus on the specific themes during sermon writing. Many have stated that Volume 1 is a great resource, and it is my prayer that Volume 2 is a great resource as well. “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, . . . teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matt 28:19–20).

God’s Blessings Upon You,
Pastor Davis
