Update: Black Lives Mater Sunday

    Dr. George O. Wood, the General Superintendent of the Assemblies of God denomination, has released a statement asking that all AG churches participate in “Black Lives Matter Sunday” on Dec. 14. The Assemblies of God Pentecostal denomination is a hugely influential organization with nearly 65 million adherents and members around the world. In a statement, Wood asked that members follow the example of Bishop Charles E. Blake Sr. of the Church of God in Christ [COGIC] by joining the nationwide movement:

    First and foremost, black lives matter. The lives of all people are precious to God, of course, but at the present moment, many of our black brothers and sisters in COGIC and the AG feel that their lives are not highly valued by many in white America. As examples, they point to the recent controversial decisions of grand juries in St. Louis County, Missouri, and Staten Island, New York, not to return bills of indictment against white police officers in the deaths of two black males, Michael Brown and Eric Garner ... Whatever your opinion of those controversial decisions, can we stand with our brothers and sisters and affirm the value of black lives generally and of their lives specifically? ... We can take steps together in that direction by affirming the value of black lives and by praying for unity in our churches and our society this Sunday, December 14.
