Our hearts, minds, and prayers go out to the families of Dr. Kathryn Brown and to Zion as we say farewell to our General Secretary of Christian Education this upcoming Wednesday. Words cannon express the loss, nor the void her passing leaves, but she leaves a memorable life of dedication, service and stellar leadership for us to model. Dr. Brown was a faithful supporter of the International Ministers' and Lay Association, even having attended our most recent banquet and sessions. Our association has been made all the better because of her. May I ask you to join with me and the family of Zion in providing her with a send off second to none, while simultaneously and collectively continuing to lift the banner of Christianity she so enthusiastically lifted, which has inspired so many.
"When He shall come with trumpet sound, oh may I then in Him be found. Dressed in His righteousness alone, faultless to stand before the throne. On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand. All other ground is sinking sand."
Dr. Anthony Witherspoon, President
