September 6, 2019 TO: Members of the C.M.E. Church FROM: The Emergency Relief Committee SUBJECT: Hurricane Dorian Over the last few days we have watched intently to see what would be the impact of Hurricane Dorian on the United States. At this point, however, it appears that Dorian spared major wrath upon the coast of the United States, but as we have seen over the news, its’ impact was greatly felt in the Bahamas. The devastation there in terms of property loss, lives lost, etc., has left many of the people grieved and in great need. Although it will take some time for them to repair structural damages and to return to a sense of normalcy, the need now seems to be supplies, health care and everyday maintenance. With this in mind, the Emergency Relief Committee is requesting members of the C.M.E. Church to receive a generous offering to help those in need. As always, we ask that you would follow the usual process of forwarding your checks (payable to the Department of Finance) to your Episcopal Leader who will record the offering and forward it to the Department of Finance. It is through your generous gifts that we, the C.M.E. Church, continue to assist those in need. As always, your promptness and generosity are appreciated. In His Service, Bishop Sylvester Williams, Sr. Chairman, Committee on Emergency Relief

An excerpt from Make “Opening Up” a Loving and Caring Decision by Senior Bishop Reddick....It is not President Trump’s job to tell God’s churches when or how or why to worship. That is not any President’s or secular leader’s job. We agree with President Trump that worship is essential, and we urge him and all who lead us in the secular domain and in God’s churches to practice and model good worship. But we are also admonished by the Scriptures to be careful to not do the things that may harm our brothers and sisters. Read the entire message here http://ow.ly/G2vF50zOTS5

An excerpt from Senior Bishop Reddick's Easter Meditation.....Resurrection was for more than Jesus on Easter morning! (“Christ, the firstfruits” – 1 Corinthians 15:23.) It was for male and female disciples who had persisted in unbelief. It made them “run and tell”; ... it made them, ... participants in God’s business of resurrecting hopes and dreams and possibilities. Are we participating?

While we are “sheltered in” (and many of us are getting tired of it), remember that some do not have that luxury. Some are starving; some are homeless, some are wandering. For them the cross is a sign of God’s presence. There they feel God feeling us, without words. An excerpt from A Good Friday Holy Saturday Meditation by Senior Bishop Reddick.

What more can we do? ...Imagine today - while you are stretching to see how much you can reach your people in this “shut in” time, while you are doing more than you thought you could do, using technology that you were afraid to use – imagine what ministries you can start when this is over so that you, too, will be declared “an essential site.” An excerpt from “An Essential Role… An Essential Site” A Palm Sunday Meditation by Senior Bishop Lawrence Reddick

It is interesting how we see cases so “black or white” and shout “We won!” or “We lost!” I take a different view now than I might have taken years ago: now I say, ALL of us lost. In some way, the whole community lost, and we will continue to lose unless we change drastically.

Read an excerpt from "After a General Conference", by Senior Bishop Lawrence Reddick.
After a General Conference, we begin a new quadrennium. We are in a state of “newness”: new themes, new emphases, new leadership on many levels, new plans and new expectations in many respects. “Behold,” says the Scripture, “I make all things new.” Let us all pray for the new aspects of the new quadrennium (four year period) to be God sent and God focused. Communion on the first day of July in 2018 might be a good way to start this new time!

An excerpt from "Because I Could" written by Senior Bishop Reddick
Providentially, God made a way for me to meet a person I wanted to meet after arriving in Texas. I wanted to meet Bill Hartley, the president of Southside Bank of Tyler. Stories of the help he had been to Texas College during the episcopal administration of Bishop Marshall Gilmore were legendary.

[05/27/18]   Dear CME Family,

The outpouring of concern one week ago for the improved health of Bishop Graves was surpassed only by the fervent prayers of God’s people.

One week ago we were in Jamaica at the site of the Bishops’ Retreat. Bishop Graves had a medical emergency which required his hospitalization there. We rejoice to report he has improved greatly, so much so that he and Mrs. Graves were able to return to Memphis and their regular physicians.

In appreciation of your responses of concern and prayers, I’ve written this update. I’m sure they would appreciate your letters and cards. However, in consideration of their privacy and “space” for restoration and healing (and the fact that I have no authority to give medical assessments), I will refrain from future updates unless requested by Bishop or Mrs Graves.

Thank you for your gifts of love, prayer, and gentleness.

Sincerely,
+Lawrence Reddick
Senior Bishop

[05/20/18]   Dear CME Family,

Thank you for being a praying and caring people.

I am happy to report that Retired Senior Bishop Graves has shown signs of being renewed and renewal all day today. We are looking up and grateful to God.

Thank you for who you are

+Lawrence Reddick
Senior Bishop

[05/20/18]   PRAYER REQUESTED

Yesterday, May 19, while preparing to participate in the Bishops’ Retreat in Jamaica, our beloved Retired Senior Bishop William Graves had a physical attack that caused him to be admitted to the hospital. As you pray today and this week, please remember Bishop and Mrs. Graves, asking for God’s mercies and wholeness. You will be most helpful as you pray.

Sincerely,
+Lawrence Reddick,
Senior Bishop

An excerpt from An Appreciation for James H. Cone by Senior Bishop Lawrence Reddick
At times, he criticized the Black Church. (Who doesn’t? Who shouldn’t?) As times moved forward, he also was criticized and challenged by womanist theologians for writing about Black Theology primarily with masculine language and with examples that excluded the experiences of Black women. He did some modifying.

An excerpt from Reclaiming Jesus, an Easter Message from Senior Bishop Lawrence Reddick...

"On Ash Wednesday, I joined with 23 other elders of the Christian Church in the United States – male and female, of various denominations and agencies – to craft a confession of what faith in times like these require. What we had in common is our belief that the soul of the United States is presently at stake, and a faithful church cannot be silent."
