On Sunday, May 5, the I. Sherman Greene Chorale continued its tradition of musical delight and enlightenment as it presented its annual Spring Concert to the Hampton Roads community at yet another great religious edifice, the Historic Bank Street Memorial Baptist Church of which the Rev. Dr. Joseph P. Lee, Jr. is Senior Pastor.

“And he prayed unto the Lord, and said, I pray thee, O Lord, was not this my saving, when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled before unto Taishish: for I knew that thou art a gracious God and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest thee of the evil. Therefore now, O Lord, take, I beseech thee, my life from me; for it is better for me to die than to live.”

Honor God for His great works. During this Memorial Day weekend, our minds flash back to a long list of people who are engaged in their eternal rest. We can continue to thank God daily for the love and faithfulness of those we have known. Ask God to lead and guide us to seek Him as our rock of salvation. In every situation let us find reasons for gratitude.

It was one of our former U.S. Presidents who said; “you must be willing to change with the changing times but hold on to the unchanging principles.” I have always viewed this statement as a piece of sound advice and something that should be adhered to. When we take note of the challenges that human beings face today this type of advice becomes even more valuable.

You who are my regular column readers know that I began this two-part series last week focusing on “The Purpose” of the church building and our bodies and how we’re to treat them. Last week I wrote mostly about the church building and how so many people disrespect God and his house. I’ll conclude now with my focus on our bodies being the temples of God and that we ought to treat them as such.
