It is with an excited
but very heavy heart that I share this will you all. My last day with
JOSHUA will be Tuesday, Feb 25th 2020. I have accepted a position with
an organization that I have helped to establish in Green Bay, We All
Rise: African American Resource Center.
It has been such a
privilege and an honor to work with all of you. I am really thankful for
a great group to learn with and from. These past 5 years we have built
relationships, worked on important and critical issues in our community,
and we have spoken truth to power. We have had some substantial wins
and some very hard losses. I am so proud of the leaders and
accomplishments of our organization. I am so thankful for my time with
JOSHUA and WISDOM and will always look back on the time with the
organization as some of the most full filling and life changing work I
have ever done.
Thank you so much for all you are and all you do in community. I have truly cherished our time together.
January 2020 – Mindful of our brothers and sisters whose homeland is in crisis, leading them to immigrate or seek refuge in another land, we pray………
January 5. For leaders of all nations to work
continuously during this new year to bring about peace so no family or
individual fears sleeping in their own homes or being taken from them.
January 12. For our willingness to share, that we might provide
what is needed by refugees caught in our world-wide crisis; that we work to
provide shelter, sufficient food, clean water, and safe days and nights.
January 19. For our recognition of the bountiful blessings we have, and that our hearts be softened toward strangers in our midst; and, for compassionate care givers who will walk with them to a secure and welcoming place.
January 26. For an end to the separation of children from
parents at the border or in our nation’s towns; and that all families who have
been separated may be reunited.
