Alfred Street Baptist Church Go Green

[06/20/15]   This warmed my heart tonight... As some of you may be aware I work with a faith alliance group for climate change. Worshiping together and working both as christian, muslims, and jews, sikhs, etc...

Last Sunday we all met at Alfred Street (my church) and it was lovely to have everyone in attendance. People can come together and do good for the benefit of all. Yesterday Pastor Wesley spoke on Hardball with Chris Matthews, I will post the video soon. This tragic incident must be talked about, must be acknowledged, because that is the only way we can confront the problem. It should not be swept under the rug - some believe we should just say- It happen and its time to move on. History has taught us all that is not the way to go. Change can not come about by denying or lack of acknowledgement.

Dear Aisha,

All of us on the FACS Community Council wish to extend our hand in solidarity and support to your community at this very difficult and painful time. We pray that you will find comfort in knowing that so many in the community we are building together are keeping your congregation, and of course the Emanuel AME community in our thoughts and prayers.

Rev. Dr. Rev Jean Wright spoke for all of us today when she wrote the following to share with you:
"Aisha, and all members and leaders of Alfred Street Baptist Church, please know that you are and will be in my prayers as we together traverse the next very difficult days of Mother Emmanuel and Charleston's grief, even the nation's, for such unspeakable violence, trauma, and loss. I pray that we all together step up and respond with love, compassion, care and hope in the face of hatred and fear-mongering. God's abundant comfort be felt in your midst at this time."

As just one example of the outpouring of support I have read today, I wanted to share with you the following message from Rabbi Aaron Panken, the president of the Hebrew Union College in New York, the institution that trains our reform clergy. I know many other faith leaders have spoken as well.
I have been reminded many times while working with the wonderful people in the FACS group that, while our language and traditions often differ in each faith community, the similarities in our dreams and work for a better world are what shine through, and even brighter, when we work together.

From Rabbi Panken:
"We mourn the deaths of Rev. Clementa C. Pinckney, beloved church pastor and respected state senator, and of each of the other eight committed leaders of the Emanuel AME community whose lives were taken so tragically. All they wanted to do was learn and share the beauty of their sacred texts together in study. No one should ever have to face this fate simply because they wanted to learn more about their tradition. As Jews, so many times in the past, we have shared such pain, and it is our responsibility to speak out and work tirelessly to ensure that we fashion a world in which every religious tradition is respected and granted the basic human right of freedom to engage in religious study in peace.

Some guidelines to help determine how long to keep records:
Tax Records: Seven years, to be safe. The IRS has three years to audit your return if the agency suspects you made a mistake and up to six years if you likely underreported your gross income by 25% or more. If you failed to file a return for any year, keep records indefinitely.
Pay Stubs: One year. Match them up to your W2 form, then shred.
Bank Statements: One year. But hold onto records related to your taxes, business expenses, home improvements, mortgage payments and major purchases for as long as you need them. Many financial institutions now provide the option to receive your bank and credit statements online instead of by mail.
Credit Card Statements: At least 45 days. The rules here are similar to those for bank statements; hang on to those you may need for your taxes or as proof of purchase. Shred the rest after you’ve confirmed payment.
Medical Records: At least a year, but often longer. Keep medical bills for at least a year in case of a dispute over a reimbursement. Some experts suggest keeping other records for five years from the time treatment for the symptoms ended. Hang onto information about prescription information, specific medical histories, health insurance information and contact information for your physician.
Insurance Records: Keep policy information for the life of the policy plus an additional five years. Additional records such as statements, hospital bills,car repair bills, copies of prescriptions, etc. should be kept up to five years from the date the service was provided. Utility and phone bills: Shred them after you’ve paid them unless they contain tax-deductible expenses.
IRA Contributions: Until you withdraw the money. You can shred quarterly statements as soon as you match them with your yearly statement.
Home Purchase/Sale/Improvements: Until six years after you sell. Improvements you make and expenses such as your real estate agent’s commission are factored in when you sell your home, lowering your capital gains tax.
Warranties: As long as they are current. Expired warranties can be recycled, unless they contain personal information.
