Watch Where You Sit!

An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing. A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, 'Can I also sit like you and do nothing?' The eagle answered: 'Sure, why not.' So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it. Moral of the story: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high!

St. Paul A.M.E. Church, Olathe, KansasOn October 6, 2014 St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church, 400 W. Spruce Street, Olathe, Kansas held a Church Conference to discuss and make a decision about the future of the church. By a unanimous vote of the membership, St. Paul decided to close its doors.

Some of the reasons include, but are not limited to, a dwindling membership and the inability to pay current financial obligations. St. Paul stood as the only A.M.E. Church in Johnson County, the State of Kansas.

Please keep the former members of St. Paul in your prayers as they seek another place to worship.

From One Of Our Readers In Cyberspace!

Thank you for being so diligent in keeping the Fifth Episcopal District so informed.  It means so much to be able to obtain inspiring, informational and accurate data about our Zion at just the click of the mouse. May God continue bless you and your entire staff for your efforts.

Celia Square

Thank you Celia for your words of encouragement! When I started building Websites over twelve years ago, there were many people who could not see the importance of having an Online presence. I learned how to build and maintain Websites in order to reach beyone the walls of the local church into the global community. It hasn't been easy and many times I have considered giving up. I want you to know that people like you give me a reason to continue. Once again, thank you Celia!
