On October 13th, Bishop T.D. Jakes visited New Psalmist Baptist Church to talk about his new book Soar.  The church was full of people eager to hear about how to make their dreams come true.  The service was full of high energy as Bishop Walter Thomas, Sr., Pastor of New Psalmist, interviewed Bishop Jakes and asked him questions about the theme of Jakes’ book.  In a way that only he can do, Bishop Jakes dropped tons of knowledge both from an entrepreneurial standpoint and spiritual point of view, encouraging attendees to be smart about going after their dreams and using the gifts and resources God has given.  He encouraged everyone to work smarter and not harder, by figuring out what their limitations are and building a team of people who possess what they are weak in.  By the end of the evening, everyone was ready to soar into their dreams and work to make them come true.

October is Clergy Appreciation Month.  It’s a time set aside to honor those men and women who lead and give spiritual guidance to places of worship all over the country.  Often their selfless deeds go unnoticed.  If you are thankful for your Pastor, may sure you do something out of the ordinary to show it.  Give a card, write a letter, send flowers, give a gift card, do something nice to encourage your leader. As always, continue to pray for them that God will give them the strength they need to continue in ministry.
