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

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."

An excerpt from....How I Will Remember Billy Graham by Senior Bishop Lawrence Reddick...

You may not have thought much of Billy Graham. I did. Of course, it did not hurt that watching a Billy Graham Crusade on television was almost a must in our home when I was under teenaged years. Our father thought it was important to listen. And then, after I answered the call to preach, I listened to Billy Graham with a different ear, wondering the secret for the inspiring of so many thousands upon thousands to come forward for Christ.

An excerpt from The Imperfect Family, by Senior Bishop Lawrence Reddick

“My family is messy; my family is so messy! ”Someone who reads this will remember saying those words to me. You may remember saying them to someone. Perhaps we say it as a way to begin to say, “What I’m about to tell you is not pretty, Okay?” Perhaps we say it because we are embarrassed about ourselves or our families. But Christmas reminds me that God uses “messy families.”
