Logos for July 11, 2020--A Prayer For The Bahamas

Logos for July 11, 2020--A Prayer For The Bahamas. Almighty God, you created us in Your own image and likeness: we thank you for all warriors in our history who have contended against evil and fought fearlessly for our freedom. Help us to reverently use our freedom responsibly that justice, equality and fair play might be manifested and maintained in our Bahamas and within and among all nations. We confess our failure, throughout these forty years of nation hood, to fully reveal your image and likeness. Drugs, crime, violence and broken homes still lurk on every hand.

Logos for July 4, 2020--Keeping Our Children Safe Online

Logos for July 4, 2020--Keeping Our Children Safe Online. The Convention on the Rights of the Child, of which The Bahamas is a signatory, speaks directly to a child’s right to protection, guidance, information, and privacy. With regard to information and privacy, a balance must be maintained and any action regarding children must be done in their best interest.

Logos for June 20, 2020--Pastoral Self-Care In Isolating Times

Logos for June 20, 2020--Pastoral Self-Care In Isolating Times. Congregational care during this coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic is essential, however, traditional congregational care is, at best, now very strained. Ministry is quite different than it was a few weeks ago. We cannot meet or gather as congregations. Caregiving for bereaving families unable to attend funeral services, members who may not be digitally connected, and those losing employment while working from home are just some examples of how ministry has shifted.

Logos for June 13, 2020--A Message of Hope for God's People

Logos for June 13, 2020--A Message of Hope for God's People. For the past two weeks there has been an array of viewpoints, raw outrage, and a cry for leadership in the United States of America as the entire globe demands justice for the death of Mr. George Floyd. Thanks to the telephone camera of Ms. Daniella Fraser, millions of people watched in horror as George (a black man) lay on his stomach on the ground handcuffed; while Mr. Derek Chauvin (a white Police Officer) had his knee on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes.
