I had the honor of speaking this morning at the home going celebration of Dr. Vivian Michele Jackson, the wife of my good friend Bishop Harry Jackson, one of FRC's Watchmen on the Wall leaders. I joined Dr. Bill Hamon, Bishop T.D. Jakes and others in honoring the life of Dr. Jackson, a warrior who stood by the side of her husband in both sickness and in health. As I shared this morning, I got to know her only because of my close relationship with Bishop Jackson, which would have never happened had I conformed to the popular notion that we shouldn't talk about religion and politics. It was religion and politics, which so many people claim divides us as a nation, that bridged the separation that existed between our respective communities. Harry and I spent a year together writing a book -- learning, and living that the truth of God brings people together on some of the most pressing and controversial issues of our day. Please join me in praying for Bishop Jackson, his two daughters and their entire congregation at Hope Christian Church.
