Pray or Party

Greetings, Dear Ones!

     I hope that all is well with you, and yours!

     For those of us in the United States of America, this is the last holiday before the start of the Fall season. This holiday is Labor Day which means barbecues, picnics, family gatherings, and more. It is also marks the "end" of Summer, and points to back-to-school time.

     If you live in Brooklyn, New York, this is the day of the biggest party in the United States. This day - the first Monday in September - for the last 50 years is the celebration called West Indian Labor Day Parade where it is expected that some 1,000,000 people will participate.

     It is because of this, and other reasons relevant to us Christians, that I have written a new poem entitled Pray or Party. The song of Praise is Take My Hand, Precious Lord.

     Let us as one body in Christ raise up the revelers to the Throne of Grace, and pray that by the end of the festivities, some soul will be drawn to call the Good Lord, Blessed.

     Please enjoy your day with your families, and endeavor in all things to put Our God first.

     May Holy Spirit comfort and guide you this day, and always, and may Jesus Christ be praised.
