Local churches celebrate Race Relations Sunday

PECOS, February 16, 2001 - Several area churches celebrated the second Sunday of the month, a date set aside by the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention with a special service.
The second Sunday of February is a date that is set aside by the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention to address the problems of racial prejudice and injustice.
The alarming increase in racial tensions in America and elsewhere in the world points to the need for improved race relations on a global scale. The individuality and unity of humanity originated from the fact that all people are made in the image of God. These truths should therefore govern how people relate to each other. It also requires that people relate to all others with respect and dignity because it is right.
Iglesia Bautista Nueva Vida, House of Prayer Baptist Church, First Assembly of God and Mt. Zion decided to make time to celebrate this important day together. Close to one 150 persons united at Iglesia Bautista Nueva Vida (New Life Baptist Church) to worship Racial Day Sunday.
The Reverend Paul Garcia and Reverend Matt Williamson lead the congregation in praising God by singing bilingual hymns together.
Fourth grader, Victoria Montoya and Mrs. Eva Garcia played a piano duet. Then Reverend James Henderson preached a sermon entitled, "My Brother's Keeper." After the service, the attendees fellowshipped in a potluck luncheon.
