In state capitols, marchers are launching a modern Poor People's Campaign inspired by the initiative Martin Luther King Jr. called for 50 years go. A key national leader of this new effort is Rev. William Barber II. Here are a few photos from today's march in Jefferson City, Mo. #PoorPeoplesCampaign #moleg
I have been enjoying leading sessions at a training conference for pastors & other church leaders in North East #India (& some from #Bhutan). I'm leading 7 sessions on communication, preaching delivery, importance of Sabbath & spiritual disciplines for ministers, & using print media for ministry. It's been great to be here in India with these pastors.
Enjoyed visiting the offices of the Council of #Baptist Churches of North East #India. It's a nice compound with many buildings. I appreciated the opportunity to dialogue, especially about their Baptist News magazine. I met the general secretary, Solomon Rongpi, in St. Louis last year, but he was travelling this week. . From left: Rajib Zillie (property secretary), me, A.K. Lama (my host & former CBCNEI general secretary), Malthyus Sangma (secretary for justice & peace), and Vikato Shikhu (finance secretary).
Here I am with Dr. A.K. Lama, executive director of Transforming Leaders in Asia Ministries (he's also the former general secretary of the Council of #Baptist Churches in North East #India). We're standing by an old well on land his TLA has purchased near Guwahati. They plan to build a school and a pastoral training center here. We prayed over this land & that dream.
