The mission of CTA is to glorify God by providing purposeful products that lift up and encourage the body of Christ --- because we love Him! “I Love the ocean,” I thought. I was standing on the seventh- floor of a vacation condominium, overlooking the water as a new day was about to dawn. The white sandy beach. The cloudless morning sky. The warning moon. And then, the first rays of sunlight peeking over the horizon. I took them in as I listened to the waves lap against the shore. All the world was at peace. A sense of calmness washed over me. “This is it,” I thought. This is serenity !” I could feel the Lord Gently tugging at my heart. I sat down, took out my Bible, and began to study. To me, Scripture is like healing salve to a burn. I snuggled deep into my chair. It felt as though God was holding me in the hollow of his hand. All my troubles seemed far away as I pondered the verse before me: “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast , because he trusts in you” (Isaiah 26:3). I looked out over the water, toward the horizon, and whispered a prayer thanking God for the majesty of his creation.. THIS part of the (Serenity -Tea, Touched my heart and I will finish it next week. My Life lessons come from the word of God.

MORENO VALLEY what a powerful program that was celebrated on Sunday, June 26, 2011 given by the Moreno Valley Black Chamber of Commerce Community Foundation. The Foundation was founded November 1, 1986 in the city of Moreno Valley. They presented Juneteenth and Black Music Month Gospel / Jazz and Award Fest at Marinaj Banquets & Events. If you were not there you missed a wonderful time in history.

The guests were blessed with a wonderful master of ceremony, Mr. Anton Bolden who is multi-talented, Ms. Adrienne Hardy sang the national anthem and Black anthem. Yours truly received two awards for my work in the community for more than twenty five years. With all that was spoken it renewed a spirit in many to get involved for the betterment of our community.

Parents teach your children who they are and where they come from and how to raise the bar to make things better. We made things better than our parents and if you teach them they can do that as well. I also want to thank the Ebony Rose Red Hatters, who were in the house.

For other information (951) 443–0226 or mvbccf@yahoo.com or website www.mvbcc.org. This program was dedicated to Robert Baker, Frank Barnes, Rubbie Eason & Louis Eason, Charles Greenwood, Charles Ledbetter, Paul Kelley, Henry Martin, Mayola Stroman, Johnese Washington, and Girtha Wright. Let us not forget just how rich our culture is. I just pray that we will: Teach, Teach & Teach that through it all “GOD” is the head of all things.

Moreno Valley, a misprint about Bishop Russell S. Bates. Jr.: It is his wife who is a wonderful woman of God and teacher in Moreno Valley that is my friend. Sorry for the misprint.

Be Blessed!
