This coming Saturday marks 35yrs that the priesthood was extended to all worthy men. As we reflect on the progression of things in our church, we are filled with love and gratitude toward our Brotha's & Sista's in this gospel. We have always been bombarded with questions regarding the priesthood from both members and non-members. Many want to know how the revelation impacted our lives (even though one of us was not yet born and the other wasn't even in kindergarten yet) , we've tried to the best of our ability to answer the questions that have been thrown our way. Although it isn't always easy to be put on the spot with questions such as these, it does give and has given us opportunities to consider our feelings about the priesthood revelation, as well as understand the relationship that we'd like to have with the organization. Having opportunities to speak to others regarding our thoughts about certain aspects of our church's history has strengthened our testimonies. We realize that not everyone has been given the opportunity to have the discussion about the priesthood revelation in a safe environment. We would like to extend an opportunity to all of you to share your thoughts and feelings on the "Long Promised Day" the day that all worthy males (Black Men) were extended priesthood opportunities. Please share your thoughts on the revelation, and what it meant/means to you. Is it something that you think about? Do you think it has had an impact on your life?
Blessed & Highly Favored,
Sista Beehive & Sista Laurel
