Rev. James Ford introduced Bishop Gregory G.M. Ingram, our Presiding Prelate with a stirring  quip about the "Eleven Wonderful Verbs."
  • I am
  • I think
  • I know
  • I feel
  • I wonder
  • I see
  • I believe
  • I can
  • I ought
  • I will 
  • I serve

Bishop Ingram introduced the speaker for the evening, Bishop Samuel L. Green, Sr., 
Presiding Prelate, 12th Episcopal District, 
whose message came from John 18:33-37:

(33) Then Pilat entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, "Art thou the Kind of the Jews?"
(34) Jesus answered him, "Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?"
(35) Pilate answered, "Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?"
(36) Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence."
(37) Pilate therefore said unto him, "Art thou a king then?"  Jesus answered "Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth.  Every one that is of the truth hearth my voice."

Subject: A Kingdom Battle
The following video is a blurb from Bishop Green's message.

Bishop Green's favorite bible verse which kept him focused throughout the years, he explains, comes from Matthew 6:33 (KJV) But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
