The Other Pulpit: Life Lessons of a Leader

DATE: Saturday, July 18, 2020

TIME: 4:26 p. m. – 4:36 p. m.

The Other Pulpit is an inspired, long overdue writing released to set free and inspire others to value the power of forgiveness.  A nation of forgotten and discarded children of illicit, church affairs, and relationships, many of us were unable to be raised in the same home or even be acknowledged by society or the church at large. Left behind without the means to survive, many of us saw great cathedrals and dynasties created for the “first families” and other favored cliques. Treated as outcasts and spiritual lepers, we received only what was considered the emotional scraps off the table. Like casualties of war, we were left for dead!!!!
