On Friday, February 28, 2020 Royal Temple Holiness Church in Guyton, Ga wrapped up Black History Month with an outstanding evening of non-stop education, entertainment, and spiritual enlightenment.
Royal Temple was the place to be as this event delivered in the most powerful way. The program titled I Am...Our Story was well planned and put together by Minister Sonja Northcutt who assembled a bouquet of artists, speakers, musicians, singers, poets, story-tellers, historians of all age groups. There was, truly, something there for everyone. The unified message was clear--how Black History is also a spiritual journey as seen when we recognize the guidance by our Heavenly Fathers unwavering hand that brought us from slavery to freedom. This power from on-high continues to lead us, even today, as we continue our struggle for freedom, justice and equality.
The undying spirit of brotherhood and sisterhood was definitely in the house at Royal Temple as the community came out to support this moving event. What really stood out was the Glory Train skit (pictured above). This was a timeless performance that spoke to the hearts of all who witnessed the truth of this Gospel message--that Heaven and Hell are both real and we must do all we can, right now, to secure eternal life.
