Coretta Scott King Memorial

Today will be the Memorial Service for Mrs. King at Ebenezer Baptist Church. The day will begin with a song service today at 11 AM. This evening at 7PM there will be a formal service with Jesse Jackson and Joseph Lowery speaking. It has been reported that Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin, fresh off of their Superbowl performances, may be performing in the Song Service. Also, Usher has been asked to lend his talents. Well, Stevie Wonder is ok, and Aretha Franklin will do in a pinch, and perhaps Usher may lend some youthful credebility, but what most of you don't know is that the most talented and intriguing performance at the Song Service will come from one Allan Bynoe. Who is Allan Bynoe you ask? He is none other than the Music Director at our church, Southwest Christian Fellowship. He was called last week and asked if he would lend his music abilities and reputation to this event (if he knew I was telling you this, he would have a fit :-). We do pray for our brother Allan, and ask God to use him to bring some measure of God-honoring, Christ-exalting musical expression to this event.
