KANSAS CITY, Mo. — This July 4, Neighbor 2 Neighbor made sure Kansas City’s less fortunate had a good meal, a cool place to eat, and a prayer.

“A lot of people don’t have family to go to, and that’s their family here,” said Leon Nash, who served lunch at Mount Washington Missionary Baptist Church.

A hot dish, with a dash of hope, is what Neighbor 2 Neighbor executive director Gregory Parr provided to several Monday inside the church lobby.

“Our main focus is helping homeless people understand why they are homeless and getting them off the streets and primarily into addiction treatment centers and recovery homes,” Parr said.

Parr says meals are served at the church five days a week, but for many those meals are more than just a hot plate.

“Many times it’s not just a meal,” Parr said. “People come here because they have hope, they want to hear the possibility of people surrendering.”

“Monday through Friday, I love coming here because I think it saves a lot of people,” Nash said. “And then they just don’t feed us, they talk to us, they pray with us, they listen to us.”

The people Neighbor 2 Neighbor serves include women like Chavon Hatten.

“I go through things,” Hatten said. “I come to my neighborhood, with my neighborhood family, and I come to try to give positive words back and let people know that you don’t have to stay here.”

Hatten says the meals provided by Neighbor 2 Neighbor and volunteers hold deeper meaning for the people they serve.

“Some of us have nowhere to eat, nowhere to stay, we sleep outside,” Hatten said. “I’ve been homeless before, I didn’t have to be, but I chose to be. Some of us have mental illnesses, so it’s good to have a place to eat, refresh, do stuff and fill your belly.”

People who are served breakfast and dinner in church, whether they are seated for prayer or waiting in line for lunch, are given a dose of compassion, hope and understanding.

“It’s their calling to give us the love we miss from our loved ones,” Hatten said. “They’re already getting love from loved ones, so we come here, and they’re giving us that love.”

Prayer battle for your finances https://garibaldirosario.org/prayer-battle-for-your-finances/ Sun, 03 Jul 2022 08:12:54 +0000 https://garibaldirosario.org/prayer-battle-for-your-finances/ The financial crisis is real.

The financial crisis is real. Almost everyone has experienced it at some point in their life. Lack makes you grunt, moan and despair. It makes people angry and bitter. It drives people to steal, lie and cheat. It forces people to do things they wouldn’t normally do.

There are many things you can do when you are in a financial crisis: you can either accept it and cry, or reject it and fight for your breakthrough. Let me show you how to fight for your legacy.

The origin of poverty

The origin of poverty is the curse introduced by Satan by making Adam and his wife sin by incredulity. They doubted God and disobeyed him. God began to reverse the curse in Abraham’s life. God promised to bless Abraham and he did and Abraham became very rich because he believed in God. What has unbelief and disobedience taken away, faith and obedience restored!

Jesus came to fulfill this promise to Abraham’s seed. Galatians 3:13-14, “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us; for it is written: Cursed is he who hangs on a tree! [14] That the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; so that we can receive the promise of the Spirit by faith. If you don’t believe in the person and principles of Christ, you will continue to wallow in poverty!

Jesus talked about coming to give us life in abundance. John 10:10, “The thief only comes to steal, kill and destroy. I have come that they may have life and have it abundantly.” Look at the contrast, everything the devil does – stealing, killing and destroying, makes people poor. Satan makes people poor, Jesus makes people rich.

Unfortunately, most people don’t know that Satan is behind poverty. They don’t fight it. Poverty is a strong man, a spirit. Proverbs 6:11 describes poverty as an armed man. The New Living Translation (NLT) says, “…and poverty will swoop down on you like a bandit; scarcity will attack you like an armed robber.

It can enslave an individual, a family, a community, a business, a church or a nation. He doesn’t work alone, he works in conjunction with other demons to make life hell for people.

Spiritual warfare and deliverance are necessary to free yourself and own your possessions. Obadiah 1:17 says, “But on Mount Zion will be deliverance, and there will be holiness; and the house of Jacob will possess its possessions.

There are two reasons why we pray regarding supply.

1. To receive our supply from our dear Heavenly Father. God is our provider, so we must go to him in prayer for our provision. Jesus taught the disciples to ask God in prayer for their daily bread or food– Matthew 6:11. It is also clear in the scriptures that supplication can bring supply. But it is only daily bread, like manna. The Bible says you don’t because you don’t ask – James 4:2b. You must pray if you must have! Prayer gives you daily bread. But there is a higher dimension called wealth. I will show you how you can get started in this realm.

2. Second, there are forces that intend to keep you poor. These forces close doors of opportunity, divert blessings, delay answers to prayers, lock up fortunes, and rob people. They cause job losses and business failures. There are spiritual palms, locusts, loopers and caterpillars which the enemy sends to waste people’s crops and fortunes – Joel 1:4. They are to be burned with the fire of the Holy Spirit by caustic prayer and aggressive if you want to enjoy financial comfort.

Witches specialize in tying people’s hands and locking them in a financial prison. They must be dislodged by a violent prayer!

5 Ways to Overcome the Forces of Poverty

Let me show you how to overcome the forces of poverty and launch yourself into true wealth:

1. Knowledge. An empty mind produces an empty life. Reading and learning make you innovative, creative, productive and impactful. And your impact makes you relevant and creates your reward. Until you improve your money mindset, you cannot change your financial fortunes.

2. Your obedience must first be in place. 2Corinthians 10:6, “And being ready to avenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.” For your prayer to be effective against the forces of poverty, you must ensure that you practice the principles of the covenant for the creation of wealth. God will not rebuke the devourer because of you if you are not a tithe. Your prayer for supply will only work if you have sown financial seeds. It is your seed that bruises the serpent’s head. Genesis 3:15. Another area of ​​obedience is soul winning. Deuteronomy 8:18, “But you will remember the LORD your God; for it is he who gives you power to acquire wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he swore to your fathers, as it is today.” It was a covenant to multiply the seed of Abraham like the stars of heaven. Giving and working for the expansion of the Kingdom of God commits God to partner with you to create incredible wealth.

3. Work. Ephesians 4:28 says, “Let him who has stolen steal no more; but rather work, working with his hands what is good, that he may have…” If you don’t work, you won’t. As we said earlier, your impact is what creates your reward. I hear a lot of inspiring sermons these days, but inspiration without perspiration leads to frustration!

4. War and deliverance. Obadiah 1:17. A brother lost his job in January of a given year. In April we had an “OPEN MY DOORS” program where we engaged in very intense spiritual warfare with focused prayers for restoration. The same person who fired him called him back immediately after the show. The gate of his supply which was closed has been reopened by aggressive spiritual warfare.

5. A lifestyle of praise. Psalm 67:5-7. The earth is programmed to yield its resources to those who praise their way of life.

I break the power of every idol and related demonic covenant over your life, in Jesus’ Name!

You are released from all inherited demonic debt, in Jesus’ Name!

Every witch or wizard who fights against you shall die without remedy, in the Name of Jesus!

I paralyze every agent of poverty operating in your life, in the Name of Jesus!

Every power fighting your breakthrough go into captivity now, in the Name of Jesus!

Every power consuming your harvest is thus roasted by fire, in the Name of Jesus!

I stop all operations of the spirit of retardation, in the name of Jesus!

Every business you get involved in will run smoothly, in Jesus’ Name!

“We want to be an extension of the love of Christ” – Shaw Local https://garibaldirosario.org/we-want-to-be-an-extension-of-the-love-of-christ-shaw-local/ Fri, 01 Jul 2022 19:49:34 +0000 https://garibaldirosario.org/we-want-to-be-an-extension-of-the-love-of-christ-shaw-local/ Joliet – “There’s no place like home” isn’t just the slogan of the 1939 film ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ That’s the general sentiment of the 50 members who make up The Way Church of Joliet, which moved into its current 3,000 square foot space at 3021 Theodore St in Joliet in the fall of 2021.

Joliet – “There’s no place like home” isn’t just the slogan of the 1939 film ‘The Wizard of Oz.’

That’s the general sentiment of the 50 members who make up The Way Church of Joliet, which moved into its current 3,000 square foot space at 3021 Theodore St in Joliet in the fall of 2021.

But before construction began, the prayer ministry team had an idea.

During the church’s first prayer service in the building, members wrote Bible verses on the bare floor, before workers covered it with flooring, the Rev. Edward L. Winfrey Jr. said. church pastor.

“So we not only rely spiritually on the word of God, but also literally,” Winfrey said. “When we are in the building, we stand on the word of God.”

The Way Church of Joliet was launched on April 14, 2014 at Trinity Christian School in Shorewood. Its original name was Joliet Church, and it was the sister church of Bolingbrook Church, led by the Reverend Calvin Quarles.

Winfrey, who was raised, educated and spiritually trained in Joliet – the former St. Joseph Parish School, Joliet Central High School and Mount Zion Baptist Church — was formally initiated into the ministry when he became Mount’s Zion youth pastor, a position Winfrey held for about eight years, Winfrey said in a 2014 Herald-News article.

After the launch, The Way Church of Joliet met at the Joliet Township District 204 Administration Building at 300 Caterpillar Drive in Joliet, where the church continued to hold services until “something called COVID happen,” Winfrey said.

Members of The Way Church of Joliet celebrate its eighth anniversary in April 2022 at its new space on Theodore Street in Joliet.  Pictured are worship team leader Andre Thompson on keyboards and Kyler Winfrey on drums.

But in the months leading up to the pandemic, the church was ready for a home. A permanent space would eliminate weekly setup and teardown and provide opportunities for expanding ministries and hosting special events, Winfrey said.

“We loved our time with District 204,” Winfrey said. “But we thought we should consider getting or looking for another location, just so we can have more accessibility to come and go as we please.”

A space to call home

Joliet’s Way Church switched to Zoom services at the start of the pandemic and used the time coordinating in-person services to search for a new church home.

The church ended up renting two empty spaces on Théodore Street, which are comparable in size to the space used by the church at the administrative center.

After hiring a contractor, the church converted the space into four rooms, including two offices and meeting space for youth activities, Winfrey said.

“It’s not huge but for our congregation it’s very appropriate at this time,” Winfrey said, then added, “Our prayer is that eventually we can get or buy our own building.”

The Way of Joliet Church held its first service in the new space on October 17, 2021 and its eighth anniversary on April 10, where members surprised it with a gift: a new podium with the inscription The Way Church of Joliet on it, he said.

After months of Zoom, Winfrey said the first in-person service “was amazing” – although some members are still logging into services on Zoom, he said.

“There’s something about people physically coming together and worshiping God that you just can’t replicate in a virtual setting,” Winfrey said.

Winfrey said The Way of Church of Joliet also hopes to return to in-person outreach very soon, such as its monthly services to residents of Marycrest Village in Joliet.

Current church ministries include discipleship development, inspirational development, and youth ministry, according to the church’s website.

The church also plans to connect with neighbors and anyone who doesn’t – yet – have a church. Winfrey said he often hears about The Way Church of Joliet is that people “feel at home, they feel the love of God.”

“That’s how we want them to feel,” Winfrey said. “We want to be an extension of the love of Christ.”

High school coaches affected by Supreme Court prayer decision https://garibaldirosario.org/high-school-coaches-affected-by-supreme-court-prayer-decision/ Wed, 29 Jun 2022 12:01:56 +0000 https://garibaldirosario.org/high-school-coaches-affected-by-supreme-court-prayer-decision/ Stafon Johnson has long described himself as a “church boy”.

Stafon Johnson has long described himself as a “church boy”.

The Dorsey High coach and former Dons standout running back found a home in the church, growing up in Compton. His grandfather was on the minister’s council there. Faith came when he started playing Pop Warner, when he came to Dorsey, and when he realized pre-game jitters could sometimes be eased with a few words to God.

He said he never prayed before basketball games like he did in football. It was the physics of the game. The knowledge that freak accidents can happen with a misplaced cleat.

“When I came to the NFL and to college, there was a real chaplain,” Johnson said. “So I just thought it was just one of those universal things, where, ‘Duh.'”

But prayer in public high school football programs isn’t that simple.

On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of a Washington state football coach who was placed on paid leave after praying on the field’s 50-yard line after games.

The decision blurs the line between church and state in public schools, with the high court ruling that the coach’s actions were protected by the 1st Amendment. For some coaches like Johnson, captain of the LAUSD programs, that line has long been blurred.

Johnson’s reaction to the decision was a surprise. Not on the verdict – on the case in general as he says a few words of prayer with his Dorsey group before every game.

“Every step of the way, going through that game, we prayed,” said Johnson, a former Dorsey and USC standout running back. “I’m a spiritual guy, I’m definitely a religious guy. So I don’t want to push anything [the team] – just more, just pray for the team and for their safety and things of that nature. I think it’s pretty much universal.

Bremerton, Wash. assistant football coach Joe Kennedy was at the center of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to allow high school football coaches to pray during games.

(Ted S. Warren/Associated Press)

” Of the history [of the case]it seemed like players felt pressured to participate, and I wouldn’t want a player on my team to feel pressured to participate before or after a game.

— David Wiltz, Dymally Football Coach

After warm-ups, just before kick-off, the Dons huddle together as Johnson prays for their comfort. For their safety. For the health of the other team. Pray, he says, because faith and unity are rooted in physical sport based on feeling “a bit of a warrior”.

“You watch old war movies, and they were praying before they went to war,” Johnson said. “It’s more of a combat sport.”

Superintendent of Los Angeles Schools. Alberto M. Carvalho told The Times that district policy already made it clear that employees were allowed to pray, but at their own pace and in their place. The district prohibits prayers that would inspire students to join, Carvalho said.

Eight to 10 years ago, Lorenzo Hernandez and Garfield High held pregame prayer times similar to Johnson. But over time, as they became more “aware” of the imposition of religion, he said, those moments faded into the team’s non-religious pep talks.

Public school coaches, Hernandez said, had to be more careful, free from the specific religious affiliation of so many private or chartered institutions.

The majority of his players, however, continued to pray alone before games, Hernandez said. And he felt the group would likely host moments of protest that could now have looser penalties under the Supreme Court’s ruling.

“They follow the NFL, they follow college football and they see certain things,” Hernandez said, referring to professional players frequently praying publicly after games. “They always want to emulate him or feel they themselves need to pray before the game.”

Angelo Gasca of Venice High was adamant that public school coaches cannot enforce religious beliefs and that the Supreme Court’s decision would not change that view, but he also did not prevent and did not prevented his players from having their own pre-match prayer times. .

Dymally’s David Wiltz was firm it wouldn’t be right to lead his athletes in demonstration, but if 80% to 90% of his team came to him and asked for a team-wide prayer, he said that he would likely explore this under the latest high court ruling. decision.

Problems only arise, Taft assistant manager Neezer McNab said, when there is any pressure on the team to comply. This is the reason why some coaches are still hesitant or unwilling to involve the team in any kind of religious activity.

” Of the history [of the case]it seemed like the players felt compelled to participate, and I wouldn’t want any player on my team to feel pressure to participate before or after a game,” Wiltz said.

When Johnson leads Dorsey in prayer, he’s trying to invoke God in a universal sense, he said — one that doesn’t push any particular faith but relates to a higher power.

A majority of its players participate, even if they are not of Christian faith.

For some, it’s simply an act rooted in football. As Wiltz said:

“I don’t think any student or player considers the separation of church and state when deciding to pray.”

Supreme Court Upholds Football Coach’s Prayers: Breaking Ruling

The case centered on Joe Kennedy’s prayers on the 50-yard line after high school football games. The Supreme Court ruled that he enjoyed the First Amendment right to practice his religion.

  • The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 Monday in favor of a former high school football coach who prayed after games.
  • This decision followed a recent ruling that schools providing religious education could receive state support for tuition fees.

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled Monday for a former high school football coach who prayed in the middle of the field after games, even though his school district feared students would feel pressured to participate, in the latest expression of support from the religious freedom tribunal.

  • What was the decision?: The high court has ruled that coach Joe Kennedy enjoys the First Amendment right to practice his religion, with the majority saying the Constitution promotes tolerance rather than the suppression of religious beliefs.
  • What does the decision mean?: The decision demonstrates how the High Court now prioritizes the free exercise of religion guaranteed by the First Amendment over concerns about the separation of church and state. The decision also came a week after the High Court ruled in a Maine case, Carson v. Makin, that schools offering religious instruction may qualify for state tuition assistance.
  • How did the nation react?: The political reaction has been mixed. Former Vice President Mike Pence said he had lifted restrictions on the free exercise of religion. But some advocates have expressed concern that the ruling will erode religious freedom by appearing to favor one group over another.

CHICAGO (SCS) — This is one of the great challenges of the world: how to live in peace and mutual respect in the midst of religious and political differences?

How can the violence in so many places be suppressed?

At noon on Tuesday, Chicagoans of diverse faiths and political persuasions attempt to answer these questions together, under one roof. CBS 2’s Jim Williams explains.

From war in Ukraine to violence on the streets of Chicago to angry political rhetoric, the signs of conflict are everywhere.

“It’s terrible what is happening right now. There is war in nations but there is also war in our hearts and with each other. There seems to be less tolerance and it seems that the people get nervous. There’s a lot of stress in people’s lives.”

Bruce Becker of the Circle of Light group said thought prayer could help transcend the differences that fray society.

“In prayer, especially as we come together in different denominations, we show that we want to bring peace into our own hearts and spread that peace to all in communion.”

And so Tuesday at noon, at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Mount Prospect, people of different faiths and different political persuasions will gather for a prayer service. Everyone is welcome.

“It’s a chance to bridge the things that might divide us and recognize that there are things that bring us together because we all pray for peace, we all value peace in our traditions and in our lives. “said Rev. Christine Webb of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church.

Ikbal Koseli from the Turkish American Society will be present. She has worked to promote interfaith unity for 10 years.

“We basically embraced a philosophy that teaches us, inspires us, to reach out to others for healing, for peace,” Koseli said.
“We need to understand each other, even if we come from different backgrounds, different religions, different backgrounds, professions.”

On Tuesday at church, they will light candles and pray, then eat lunch with food as the biggest unifier, in the hope that this will be just the beginning of empathy and friendship.

“I’m learning that it’s possible to reach out to someone you disagree with and it’s possible to bridge that gap, as long as you can do it in peace and understand the person. in front of you, even though you might not agree with her, that they are also a human being with a soul. They are filled with the love of God, just like you,” said Beckner.

The interfaith prayer service is held at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Mount Prospect. Starts at noon. They also stream the service online.

Equipped with water bottles and large sun hats, an enthusiastic small group of longtime members of St. James African Methodist Episcopal Church and San Antonio River Authority officials braved the Saturday morning heat for a June 19 celebration downtown.

“Hopefully it brings us closer together,” Smith said of the march as the morning festivities began.

Some of the participants skipped the march and piled into a golf cart that led the peloton, which was largely made up of church members and SARA employees, but included a handful of other members of the community of San Antonio.

The foundation of St. James AME Church, one of the oldest black churches in the state, was discovered in 2020 during the construction of San Pedro Cultural Park and is now preserved. SARA worked with the church, which was founded in 1867, to help incorporate the foundation into the design of the park.

“Not only is this a historic moment for St. James AME Church, but it is a historic moment for African Americans in the city of San Antonio,” Smith told participants at the start of the march as he was standing in front of the foundation which had a string of yellow construction flags surrounding it. “Because now we feel like we have a piece of that pie that makes us the historic San Antonio that we are.”

The Saturday march was just one of the many ways San Antonians celebrated Juneteenth this holiday weekend; others went to festivals while some headed to the ballpark for a game on Saturday.

June 19 was celebrated as a federal and municipal holiday for the first time last year. In September, it became a Bexar County holiday.

It commemorates June 19, 1865, when Major General Gordon Granger of the Union Army arrived in Galveston to announce that two years earlier President Abraham Lincoln had abolished slavery.

Reverend Cynthia Rodgers, 59, walked arm-in-arm with 75-year-old blind church member George White on Saturday, helping guide him through the busy downtown streets.

Rodgers has been a part of the church his whole life. She said she thought it was beautiful that officials changed their original building plans to properly honor St. James and its place in history when the foundation was discovered.

“It shows how far we’ve come,” Rodgers said, “and shows us that the city loves us and that we matter.”

When the marchers arrived at their current church on North Richter Street, they rested on folding chairs set up under awnings in the parking lot as the next phase of the day’s celebration began. The bell of St. James rang as church leaders stood before a microphone to pray for former church leaders, victims of the COVID-19 pandemic and those who were killed in the school shooting in Uvalde and church shooting in Charleston, SC. The seventh anniversary of the tragedy at Charleston’s Emanuel AME Church took place on Friday.

This weekend also marks the return of in-person services at St. James — Smith said the church has only hosted virtual services since the pandemic began, but will reopen to its congregation of 300 on Sunday.

Smith said the walk could become an annual event in the future.

Derek Boese, 48, helped stop traffic at crosswalks as marchers weaved through the city center. Boese, chief executive of the river authority, was one of several SARA officials present. The organization’s public art curator, Carrie Brown, was also present; she worked with church leaders to organize the event.

“We are honored to be a part of this and to celebrate this holiday with them and to provide the start of the march and a space for people to come together,” Brown said.

Johnnie Davis, 71, said the Juneteenth event was a way to honor the founders of St. James and the denomination as a whole for “what they did and what they created,” noting that ‘they faced challenges as newly freed people.

“To me, today was an expression of appreciation,” she said, “and acknowledgment that there had been a struggle that they had overcome, and that they had truly thrived and survived during this period.”
