The birth of Issac Jabez-Obama Williams was announced in the bulletin today at Bethel AME.
It was the second service we attended (earlier, the 9am at ECOR), and included no fewer than three sermons, two altar calls, and two offerings.
On our way out the door from ECOR, the church matriarch stopped me and said this:
“I hear there were 2 million people in Washington DC for the inauguration. I understand there were no arrests that day,” she smiled, “That gives me great hope in our country.”
