LI V I N G S.W .A .T.A . Spiritual Women Awakening To Authority


September 8, 2018 is a day we will always remember. We witnessed our Man of God, Dr. Herbert Bailey II being honored and celebrated for 40 years in ministry as well as his consecration and installation as Bishop. Long before this day of his Episcopal Consecration, we watched him live and walk worthy of the office and title to which he dolor was being elevated. Lorem ipsum sit amet, consetetur sadipscing elitr, sed diam In 2001, Pastor Bailey? s role was that of adjutant during the consecration of his uncle, Right Reverend Scotland Brown Bailey.

Evidence of generations of dedication to the work of the kingdom was being manifested our very presence. At vero eos etin accusam et justo duo

We were to have The Most Reverend Thomas Dexter Jakes, Sr. from dolores et honored ea rebum.

His message, ?The Power of Elevation,? was a powerful, est. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, prophetic word for the house of Right Direction--a shift has come to RDCI and the struggle is over. As the ceremony continued, our Pastor was adorned with Bishopric garments, anointed with oil and received the laying on of hands for the office of Bishop. At the completion, Bishop Herbert Bailey II was greeted with applause, standing ovation, sounds of praise, honor, reverence, excitement, and joy as he took his first walk around the sanctuary as Bishop. We later traveled to the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center where we celebrated the 40 years in ministry, the induction, the consecration and the installation. As Bishop Herbert and Dr. Marcia Bailey entered the room, over 500 family and church members, friends, dignitaries, and well-wishers stood to rejoice and show tribute. Remarks were shared by several spiritual leaders Pastor had served and who had played a significant role in the spiritual development and mentoring of our Pastors. Additionally, we were blessed by Bishop McLaughlin?s inspiring message. An unforgettable moment of honor came when Mayor Pro Tempore Tameika Isaac Devine presented Bishop Bailey with the golden key to the City of Columbia. When the day was over, we continued to share in the excitement of the elevation of our Pastors knowing that elevation is present for the entire house of RDCI. On a personal level, we humbly accept the responsibility and commitment required for our individual and corporate elevations. As we surrender and receive what God has called us to, we have great expectation that His blessings, touching, changing and elevating will be seen in every area of our lives as never before.

S.W.A.T.A. WARRIOR SPOTLIGHT Facing the Fear of Multiple Cancers Written by: Barbara Turner October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We could not think of a better way to celebrate survivors than to acknowledge one of our own queens. Multiple health issues have tried to break down Bridgette Johnson throughout her life. But her walk in faith and dependence on God have been able to carry her through. Bridgette has been diagnosed with cancer five times: bone cancer, kidney cancer, and breast cancer (twice). This past September, Bridgette had a mastectomy to treat Paget?s disease, which is a rare type of cancer involving the skin of the nipple. This was not her first encounter with breast surgery. She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002 after she discovered a lump on her breast through a self-breast exam. She was treated with chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and a lumpectomy. In March of 2018, another lump was detected through an ultrasound, and she discovered she had Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS), which is considered stage 1 of breast cancer. She had a lumpectomy to have the cancerous tissues removed. Bridgette says her health challenges have helped her family strengthen their faith in God. ?My son told me the other day that he looks at the devil as a big joke because the devil doesn?t understand that every time I?m gonna keep coming out healed.? Bridgette says the word of God and prayer, along with medical treatments will beat this disease. ?You have to awaken the warrior in you and fight.?

DID YOU KNOW ? October is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Domestic abuse or relationship abuse is a pattern of behaviors used by one partner to maintain power and control over another partner in an intimate relationship. Unfortunately, domestic violence in our society is becoming increasingly common. Domestic violence does not discriminate. Anyone of any race, age, sexual orientation, religion or gender can be a victim ? or perpetrator ? of domestic violence. According to Psychology Today, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been in abusive relationships, while 1 in 5 women and 1 in 7 men have faced severe physical violence. Some reasons many victims do not come forward are fear of victim-blaming, shame, low self-esteem and love to name a few. You can help by listening, being non-judgmental, be respectful, and recommend social and legal services for assistance in making a fresh start.

NAOM I'S NUGGETS "Wake up! It?s time to get on our post. It?s time to get back on the wall. It?s time to keep on doing what God?s called us to do, ?til we see His promise come to pass." Excerpt from The Awakening, Friday Night Service Message: It?s Time to Wake Up!
