It was Education Sunday at Union Baptist Temple, in Bridgeton, NJ. Senior Pastor Rev. Albert Morgan “God’s Mailman”, a member of the Bridgeton Board of Education, celebrated educators from surrounding communities in Cumberland and Salem counties. It was a day of praise and prayer for school administrators, teachers, parents and the children. The sermon, delivered in a college lecture style, was called It’s Time to Download. Taken from Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go… The message spoke to the challenges of raising and educating young people in today’s digital society; in an ever-increasingly complex world. Pastor Morgan reminded the congregation that our sustaining hope for the future remains grounded in our faith, our cultural values and the ideals of the race!
Union Baptist Temple graciously welcomed Publisher Adrian Council’s contribution to Education Sunday. In his remarks, Adrian made it very plain the enduring value of being responsible for our own African American history—our story. Owning The Positive Community’s Obama Commemorative Issue is a positive step in the right direction. It is up to each of us to do all we can to protect, preserve and promote our very best. Mr. Council’s visit is part of TPC’s ongoing church tour to member congregations that subscribe to the magazine’s Great Roll Call to Progress (pg.7).
