‘Unity in the Community’ on Friday, Aug. 24
The next “Unity in the Community” at Journey Church on Friday, Aug. 24, at 6:30 p.m., will focus on worship, said organizer Bug Brown.
Members of her family, including the Rev. Nicholas Banks, her cousin, will lead the worship service, she added.
“Our community really needs to know who Jesus is and just come empty ourselves before Him,” said Brown.
“None of us are perfect. We all fall short daily, and it’s okay. That’s why He went to the cross for our mistakes… past, future and present. He loves us anyway.”
Again, Brown emphasized the importance of everyone in the community loving one another – no matter what. That’s still the overreaching aim of Unity in the Community gatherings, she said.
“We’re all in this together no matter what we look like – race, creed, color. It doesn’t matter,” said Brown.
The seventh Unity in the Community event will include free food, with half of the offerings from attendees being given to the family of Jodi Mulder, who have traveled to California for his cancer treatment, Brown said. She said those dollars will help 6-year-old Jodi’s family pay the high expense of being in California.
“We also are going to, as always, honor our police officers and first-responders because that’s where (the inspiration) for all of this came from,” said Brown. “They need to know that we have their back. They need to know that we’re praying for them daily, which I do, because their lives are sacrificed every, single day.”
