Philippians 4:6 (NIV)
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Sincere Sisterhood – Matthew 22:37-39 (NKJV)
1st Command “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.
2nd Command “Love your neighbor (Soror) as yourself."
Exceeding Excellence – Colossians 3:23 (ESV)
"Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ."
Embracing Empowerment – Zechariah 4:6 (KJV)
"Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts."
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. It is my pleasure and honor to serve humbly as your South Atlantic Regional Chaplain for this biennium 2020 - 2022. Unbeknownst to me God was preparing me for such a time as this. We are living in an era of accelerated technological advances; racism, oppression, and social injustices have reared their ugly heads again; and we are enduring one of the worst pandemics of our time. My love for sharing hope in Christ, my career in technology, and my deep passion for social action all play a part in how I lead and engage with all of you now.
During this time I admonish you to do the following: 1) Return to God's written word, the bible, for instructions and guidance on how to endure and persevere in this life. 2.) Rejoice always. Pray continually. Give thanks in every situation. 3.) Share the love of Christ and salvation with everyone you know.
My heart's desire is to focus on building relationships across the region including with Regional Leadership, Chapter Chaplains, Clergy, Chapter leadership, and Sorors of all generations. My prayer is that God will allow me and the intercessory prayer team to become a safe place for Sorors to share your concerns, praise reports, and prayer request as we actively show love for one another. Lastly, as I serve you, I know that I am ultimately serving God. Therefore, I will seek Him for guidance and boldness to create opportunities to share the Gospel, to teach and model biblical truths and precepts across our chapters, and to worship Christ in whom we move and have our being as we serve our communities collectively.
We will look back and testify just how far God has brought us as individuals, as families, as chapters, as the Sensational South Atlantic Region, and as our beloved Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. Praise be to God in advance!
