Billy Graham and discipleship 2000



Graham had at least three. He was a partisan political tribalistic activist who single-mindedly [some people said sycophantically] threw his weight of support [and Graham was an international heavy weight] behind president Richard Nixon even in the crucial years of the notorious water-gate scandal; in a few instances, it was alleged that he was duplicitous in his attempt to sway presidential elections; then there was the unmitigated antiSemitic racial slap in the face of Jews when he secretly expressed his contempt for them in so many words. There were talks of him pursuing his passion to the abandonment of his children whom he should have evangelized before attempting to evangelise millions… But say what you want, God chose Graham and used him mightily as the greatest evangelist of my time, second only to Jesus. It just goes to show that there is no perfect mouthpiece for Jesus and after all if we were perfect, He probably would have no use for us.

If ever I wanted a definition for the noun humility I only had to watch Billy Graham at one of his crusades; and if ever I didn’t understand what it meant to preach a simple salvation sermon, I could always tune in to a Billy Graham crusade. His sermons were described as great and powerful but what made them powerful was not the rhetoric of a learned theologian—although he was that—or the complexity of a scholar – and he was also that.

His sermons were simply his lived experience, ignited by his God-induced compassion for souls. Graham’s life was rich and overflowing with God’s fresh anointing and so it didn’t matter whether he got up and made a profound point in the pulpit or just got up and said, “Jesus loves you,” [the latter is what he often did], the Holy Spirit was always there to affirm and endorse what he had to say and the people responded in droves -not to Graham but to the summons of the Holy Spirit. He was a conduit, a voice, an instrument whom God used to God’s glory. He was no one’s idol or icon or monument. He was just God’s instrument and that’s how regular people – except some journalists - saw him and talked about him. It was Billy Graham who excited and ignited my passion for evangelism: I was enthralled by his humility, simplicity and unpretentiousness and his quiet yet persistent passion for God’s creation. I made my commitment to evangelism after one of his pure undiluted sermons and I joined the training offered at the Boulevard Baptist under the aegis of the JBU’s Discipleship 2000 evangelistic initiative, led by the Rev Everton Jackson. Discipleship 2000 is still one of the most fruitful evangelistic initiatives launched by the JBU. Why has Billy Graham become the focus of my muse during black history month – after all he aint black; for me he wasn’t white either. For me he was the evangelist who took colour out of salvation and caused blacks and whites to stand shoulder to

shoulder at the altar even in the most racist of states. He was an epitome of ecumenical partnership. There will not be any space on his crown to place stars up in heaven, given the multiplicity of souls he brought into the Kingdom of God. You can appreciate therefore that I was a bit saddened at the seeming dismissive manner in which a resolution to mark his death was treated at the recent 168th General Assembly. Although I agreed that there was no need for the inclusion of additional emotive words in the resolution to mark Graham’s passing, I would have thought that a man who had made such a tremendous impact in Christendom would have been given even a moment of silence at a general gathering of a denomination like the JBU. I think my sadness deepened when the explanation given by a former JBU vice president for the exclusion of further sentiments was that we don’t have the intensity and depth of feelings for Graham because he wasn’t geographically near to us. It made me wonder - does impact have anything to do with proximity? Perhaps Graham has arguably touched more lives in Jamaica than any other denomination on our doorstep. Rest in peace Billy Graham – near or far, flawed and fallible you are my metaphor for executing the mission to which Christ has commissioned us.

IT SHOULDN’T HAVE BEEN HER... But it’s her...


The combined choir

– THE MAwere a part of Baptist history when the Rev Karen Kadianne Francis Kirlew took her “vows” and became the first female president of the Jamaica Baptist Union on Sunday, February 25 at the National Arena —What a pay day for women in the Union! CORES OF CONGREGANTS JORITY BEING WOMEN -

But it would be remiss of me not to share with you other high points of the High Point of the 168th General Assembly: That Combined ‘Adult’ Choir with lead soloist Ishmale Williams and conductor Joseph McIntyre took the Nathan Carter arranged It pays to serve Jesus and not only made it their own, but offered it up to God who returned it in showers of blessing to the more than 7,000 congregants.

Kirlew’s installation was met with roars of cheers and cymbals of applauses as congregants got caught up in what was a showstopping moment. Never before, outgoing President Devon Dick said, had there been such excitement, enthusiasm and expectation for an incoming President. Her response was precise and to the point: The historic moment, she said, was a reminder that God’s activity was not constrained by time; and we don’t always understand how God works but God’s works are unchallengeable. She acknowledged her limitations and thanked congregants for their support and for impacting her life.

And yes, there may have been a few like US Baptist chauvinist Minister Steven Anderson, crying in the wilderness, “It should not have been her!” by virtue of her sex. But make no mistake if there were any doubt whatsoever in the minds of those who sought the mind of God on the matter, it would have been dispelled by the word spoken by God through his mouthpiece, Eron Henry, Director of Communications at the 4 | BBC eVoice

The new executive The new 32-member Executive was installed of which nearly 50% of that number are relatively inexperienced leaders, hence the need for prayer and God’s guidance. Baptist World Alliance. Henry chronicled a slew of biblical “unheralded unimpressive” misfits from Moses to Paul to Jesus to the “four weak, desperate, despised lepers” of 2 Kings 7: 3-11, whom God called and transformed into extraordinary potent instruments to achieve great things. “All the evidence suggests that it should not have been any of these people... living on the margin, on the edge, holding onto the tongue of the precipice, but whom God used mightily anyway,” the preacher declared.

Rev Racquel Buckley was extended the right hand of fellowship as the newest ordained minister on the pastoral block and five new commissioners, Derrick Saddler, Tanesha Asbourne, Kirk Pinnock, Travis Drummond and Sam Dorelein were also introduced. The first of two closing services was led by Rev Taniecia McFarlane, Clerk of the Assembly and pastor of the New Haven Baptist Church.

privilege. To God be the glory for His love, His mercy and His Grace. Those of us who celebrate in this the wonderful month of February, are blessed to celebrate with millions around the world: Boulevard Baptist Church birthday, Black History Month, Jamaica Day, Bob Marley Day, Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday. Of great significance to us Baptist, is that this year, the Jamaica Baptist Union (JBU) Generally Assembly was convened February 21-25 at our church. As such over five days we were be able to participate more fully into the activities because they were at “home”.

Our Union’s theme for the next two years is God’s People in God’s World: Living in Partnership. The February Fellowship will, as it has done over the years, give practical expression to our theme as we continue to partner with each other to visit with and pray for our sick in the hospitals, at home, comfort and encourage the bereaved, be a shoulder for those in need of support; the ear for those who need a listener and prepare with love and distribute the monthly “stomach warming soup.” Our fellowship is strengthened as we gather for social and fun activities separate and apart from those activities which are intended to deepen our commitment and aid our spiritual growth and development as followers of Christ. Whereas our group grew only by two, Ashley Clarke and Ann Marie Toomer Gayle. It will long be remembered that Ashley Clarke was the sole candidate for baptism that second Sunday morning in December and that she walked to the pool unaccompanied. Our grief on the passing of our dear sister Avis Chambers was made worse as several calls to her house were unanswered. It was through a 5 | BBC eVoice

call to wish her happy birthday that we were made aware of her departure. “A wake up call for us? YES. We have a duty to the elderly, especially those who live alone. We must go beyond the unanswered call and minister to the needs of those who are house-bound.

Life is precious. Life is fleeting. Life is just a breath. It is God who gives life and who sustains life. Our duty is to give him the glory as we partner to serve and minister to our fellow human being.




Month, some of our contemporary Baptist ministers would be celebrated along with wellknown pioneers like George Leile, James Phillippo and William Knibb. By extension, they would also be recognized for being a significant part of the history of the African diaspora much of it unrecorded - one of the criteria for celebrating people or events in Black History Month. I would include our founding pastor, Rev. Luther B. Gibbs, among the contemporary ones whose achievements would be recognized for the central role they played in the growth and development of the spiritual lives of Jamaicans. So what is it about this man that would qualify him? He has many qualifications which should be seen in the context of the ideals of Christianity, but I will just point out two. Executing the great commission Gibbs embraced and put into action the “Great Commission” of Jesus Christ to spread the gospel far and wide. He had a passion for ‘planting churches’ and has been called the ‘Building Pastor’ by colleagues. He not only laid the foundation for the Boulevard Baptist Church (BBC), but also founded the Barbican, Denham Town, New Haven and Gregory Park Baptist churches. Gibbs played a role in the reconstruction of Baptist churches af-

ter Hurricane Gilbert in 1988 and commissioned a manse for each of the Buff Bay and Hanover Street Baptist churches. He was part of the driving force behind the Horizon Home for the Aged and the Conference Centre at Duncans, Trelawny. The “Great Commission” is not just about building churches; it is also about baptizing people and teaching them about Jesus Christ. He fearlessly carried out these mandates without prejudice. While pastor of the Hanover Street Baptist Church, for example, he purposefully evangelized the ‘ladies of the night’, risking the anger of, and possible harm from the operators of the brothels. All-rounder Gibbs was not just a “planter” of churches, a baptizer and teacher; he also played a significant role in the development and evolution of the Baptist and Christian communities in Jamaica. As noted on the BBC website, he was Secretary and subsequently Moderator of the Kingston and St Andrew Baptist Association (KASABA).

He served in various other positions in the Union including Vice -President, 1961 to 1963, President, 1964, and again in 1978 to 1980. He also acted as General Secretary in 1964 and was the General Secretary from 1991 until his retirement in 1994. At the interdenominational level, he was secretary and president of Jamaica Christian Endeavour and assistant secretary and vice

Gibbs -president of the Jamaica Council of Churches. He was a longstanding member of the Kingston Keswick Council. National recognition The government of Jamaica recognized his contribution to national development in 1992 when he was awarded the Order of Distinction – Commander Class, for his pioneering and empowering role in religion and community development. Indeed, based on just these two qualifications, our founding pastor is a candidate for Baptist History Month. And, I dare say, Black History Month.

Partnering for solutions

(PSOJ), Howard Mitchell has renewed his call for a coalition model of leadership to develop and implement a sustainable crime fighting plan. According to the PSOJ boss, any sustainable solution to crime and violence must have its genesis in what he described as a “Firmament Committee” that transcended political administrations. He was of the belief that only such a coalition can spearhead a sustainable response to violence. He pointed to the model of the Electoral Commission as an example of such a coalition; and highlighted the Vision 2030 plan as a reasonable blue print for crime solutions. Mitchell was one of four panellists at a town hall meeting convened by the Jamaica Baptist Union (JBU), on Thursday,

February 22, to discuss solutions to the perennially vexing problem of crime and violence, plaguing several sections of the country.

was of a similar view, but stressed the need to adopt a participatory approach in which the youth themselves help to design their own solutions.

The panel included Commissioner of Police (acting) Clifford Blake, Custos of St James, Bishop Conrad Pitkin and Violence Prevention Alliance founding member Bradley Edwards, all of who agreed that no single entity could respond effectively to crime and violence.

He was also of the opinion that training interventions were a necessary preventive measure, - especially in St James to ensure that the scores of unattached youth are equipped with relevant skills to make them employable.

However, they were not on one accord with what the coalition model and the crime fighting plan should look like or how it could be implemented. Acting Commissioner Blake was convinced that any workable crime fighting plan must include preventive measures to divert unattached youth into productive avenues and to attempt to “correct rather than arrest,” them. Bishop Pitkin

Meanwhile, Bradley Edwards, founding member of the Violence Prevention Alliance argued that it was better to tackle the risk and vulnerability factors as part of a broader preventative strategy rather than trying to ‘correct and cure.’ The discussion was moderated by Journalist Earl Moxam.



HE END AND THE BEGINNING: THE BBC BROUGHT THE CURTAINS DOWN ON the observance of its 49 years of ministry on the Boulevard and raised them yet again on the big 50 on Sunday February 11. Key actor was the Reverend Burchell Taylor whom we took out of his retirement to deliver the word; and what a word it was! You may refer to page 13 of this magazine for the details of his sermon titled To God be

the glory

The not-so-new Council was also inducted, with few new members including the assistant Secretary, Racquel Aldrige and Sunday School Superintendent Carmen Campbell and several group members. On the whole the morning service was what it should be— reflective and sober as we participated in the ordinance of Holy Communion. WE SHARE A COMMON BOND In evening Rev Stephen Smith Guidance Counsellor at the Calabar High School brought the exhortation in which he reminded us that we shared a common bond as Jesus people and that we were valuable and of equal value in the eyes of God. He added that we were called to partner with each other as we shared in the Fellowship but we should not lose sight of the fact that Christ ruled over all of us, therefore no one should be made to feel isolated or displaced.

The preacher further noted that we were built on a foundation in which Christ was the chief cornerstone, hence the foundation could not be destroyed and we should be able to draw strength from each other. It was a simple yet effective message inspired by Ephesians 2: 19.

UTGOING PRESIDENT OF THE JAMAICA BAPTIST UNION, Rev Dr Devon Dick has decried the high levels of lawlessness and social disorder in Jamaica. The Baptist pastor said there is rank incivility that includes “rudeness and crudeness, coarseness and hooliganism” among Jamaicans. “Public discourse, social media communication, religious debate, name-calling, indiscipline in sharing of public facilities, use of the roads are often done with incivility, ” the Baptist Minister asserted. President Dick was delivering his final address to the Opening Ceremony of the JBU’s 168th General Assembly, on Wednesday at the Boulevard Baptist Church. Guided by the sub-theme Living in partnership, president Dick addressed the subject Mutual respect and outlined four basic pillars on which he stated, any solid partnership must be built: practising humility, maintaining civility, valuing dignity and embracing community. Rev Dick was of the opinion that all four pillars were integral to the building of a wholesome community that could realise Jamaica’s Vision 2030 objective to become “the place of choice to live, work, raise families and do business.”

10 | BBC eVoice

According to the Baptist Minister, maintaining civility is not a matter of convenience or preference, calculated in terms of self-interest, but something due to everyone without exception – a value necessary for creating of a kinder and gentler society. He opined that civility cannot be maintained without humility and that civility is what is needed to ensure that Jamaicans value the inherent Godgiven dignity that every person, irrespective of who he is and what he has done, possess. In his estimation, “it is a sin to deprive a human of the necessities conducive to living a life of viable dignity,” and “it is wicked to label, stereotype, classify and categorize people in order to demean a human person of God’s creation.” President Dick iterated that partnership involves embracing community. He deplored any partnership that was based on what he called the “divide and rule, crab in barrel mentality or scorched earth attitude.” He pointed to several factors which undermine community building, including “greed oppression, exploitation, imposed disadvantages, strategic impoverishment of peoples...”

“For a community to be strong, sustainable and effective it must be a community of equals,” he stated. Like the PSOJ President, Howard Mitchell, Rev Dick is also convinced that political parties perpetuate a hierarchical system that replicates the plantation system, but he was quick to remind the PSOJ Head that his organisation in the early years had also condoned such practices. The Opening Service was led by the JBU General Secretary Karl B Johnson. The Combined Adult Choir gave a scintillating and spirit-filled performance of Thine is the Kingdom.

TO GOD BE THE GLORY Dorrett R Campbell


n Sunday February 11, Rev Dr Burchel Taylor, retired pastor of the Bethel Baptist Church, invited the congregants at the BBC to adopt a reflective posture as we embark on the celebration of 50 years of Ministry. His questions were pointed, poignant and soul-searching: Are we truly living for God’s sake; acting in God’s name and depending on God’s grace? Are we causing offence to others by the lives we lead and thus becoming a stumbling block in their way? Do we allow socio-cultural taboos and customs which are not biblically based to cause problems for others who would have liked to become members of the church? Do we really understand what it means to give God thanks and to do all for His glory? The questions had their genesis in Paul’s exhortation to the Church at Corinth (1st Corinthians 10: 31-32). In introducing his sermon, Rev Taylor noted that an anniversary provides an opportunity for sober reflection and that such reflection is usually characterised by ambivalent attitudes: either we approach an anniversary with fear and trembling or eager anticipation; either such anniversary is more of the memorable or less of the regrettable; more of satisfaction than frustration. However, in his estimation irrespective of how we approach

11 | BBC eVoice

anniversaries, the preacher asserted, anything we do must be done to the glory of God and any moment of genuine thanksgiving must be grounded in three realities: it must be Godinspired; God-centred and Goduplifting; and that’s what our lives ought to be individually and collectively. Rev Taylor reiterated that the lives we live and the mission we pursue must be so lived and pursued for the Glory of God. This, according to the principles recorded by Paul, is our set standard; the quality measure; our driving motive and our fixed purpose. Nothing lasts unless it is done to the Glory of God. Therefore, living for God’s glory makes for a faithful, fruitful and fulfilling life. But what does it really mean to live for God’s glory? The preacher gave us three illustrations: Living for God’s sake, which was further distilled into living to give God honour and living so that others will give God honour everywhere and in every context. Living for God’s sake defines the purpose and guides the practice of our lives. Acting in God’s name: whatever we do we do with God’s authority, approval and assurance. In this regard, when we serve, we ought to ensure who is the source of our authority;

once God is the source, God will vindicate us from unreasoned and unreasonable criticisms.

Depending on God’s grace: This is expressed in language of dependence, obedience and confidence. The preacher defined grace as “God’s outpouring, all-embracing, transforming, available and sustaining undeserved love in Jesus Christ, by faith.” The conclusion Live and serve to the glory of God; it is your fixed purpose; your quality measure; it defines your standards and guides your priorities and practice.

LENT THROUGH THE LENS OF GRACE by Andy Alexander, SJ, Maureen McCann Waldron

wonderful that is about to happen.

JUST IMAGINE THAT THIS LENT IS GOING TO BE DIFFERENT FROM EVERY OTHER Lent we've experienced. Imagine that there will be many graces offered us this year. Let's even imagine that God is going to help transform our lives, with greater freedom, greater joy, and deeper desires for love and service. Preparing our hearts is a process of preparing our desires. This means practicing our sense of anticipation. If we imagine Lent as an "ordeal" or a time to dread in some way, then we've already predisposed ourselves to not get very much out of it. These days before Lent are a time to start anticipating something

12 | BBC eVoice

Our sense of excitement and anticipation will grow more easily if we begin to imagine what God wants to give us. There is something coming that we can truly look forward to. If we get too focused on ourselves and what we are going to do or not do, we could risk missing the gift God wants to give us. We have to keep aware of the fact that grace comes from God. This is about God's great desire to bless us. With this mindset, it is easier for us to imagine that what we really want to do is place ourselves in a space to receive what God wants to give us. We receive God’s gifts as body-persons. We experience things with our senses, relish them with our imaginations, and share in God’s own creative and loving activity when our hearts and hands work together for and with others. We can let our homes be places full of the holy – things that help raise our minds and hearts to God. Our world is full of so many images that lure our minds and hearts elsewhere. Some symbols will carry the ongoing meaning we give them, for us and for our

families and loved ones. We can make sure that we have a crucifix in a central place in our home during Lent. A bowl of water on our dining room table can be transformed into a reminder of our preparing to renew our baptismal promises. A candle can be lit at each meal to remind us of the light of Christ among us in Lent and to prepare us for the new fire being lit at the Easter Vigil. Placing a Bible in a central place in our home reminds us of the central place of God’s Word in our lives on this Lenten journey. This year’s Lent can be different. It will take an openness to God’s grace, a deep desire to receive what is being offered us, and a few signs and symbols to help us stay focused throughout the season. But if we do these things, God’s desire for our hearts and our desire for greater union with God will meet. Lent will no longer feel like a bur-

den, but rather a blessing.

rich greens (celery, cucumber) as this cuts down the ‘bush taste’. While your body may appreciate all the antioxidants and vitamins, it’s important to keep in mind that using a high calorie base (like a sugary pasteurized fruit juice from the supermarket) is a surplus of carbs and can throw a wrench in weight loss plans.
