Alcoholics, Crack heads, Sinners and Saints: All Are Welcome (Are they Really?) Recently I came across a church message board that instead of inspiring me to seek a relationship with a higher power for some reason I found myself deeply disturbed. Since I personally know the pastor of this particular church, the great work he has done in the inner city for years and of his publicly stated empathy towards men and women struggling with drugs and alcohol, and his support for people in recovery from addiction I immediately tried to find the positive in the message. Try as I might I could not find any redeeming, profound, affirming or uplifting aspect to the message. Maybe it was intended to announce the title of an upcoming sermon to be preached, or as an invitation to attend Sunday service. Either way for me the message missed its mark, especially if it was intended to make someone struggling with drugs and alcohol feel welcome to attend. My question is what is driving this phenomenon and need to label or identify someone based on their condition.

As a recovering person and a professional, I know firsthand that any moment of clarity or window of opportunity in which someone addicted to alcohol and drugs, legal or otherwise might chose to seek out or ask for help is both narrow and oftentimes shortlived. What a shame it would have been if someone had chosen that particular Sunday to attend this particular church to ask for God’s help or to reach out directly to the pastor for help and they were greeted with a message that read in part “alcoholics and crack heads welcome” .

There is an old saying “never judge a man or woman until you have walked a mile in their shoes”. Still cannot relate, try this little test. Take one negative thing (just one) in your life you feel goes against your upbringing, your belief system, or maybe even against God’s word, and attach a label to it. Now place that label in front of who you are as a person, and accept the fact that this is how people will see and refer to you no matter what positive things you have Long before someone achieves the done in the past or hope to do in the notoriety and public designation as future. A heavy burden to carry isn’t an alcoholic, drunk, crack head he or it. Furthermore, while I am no biblical she is a man or woman, boy or girl, scholar I have read and understand somebody’s son, daughter, mother, enough of the good book to know God father, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, cooften chooses to redeem and use the worker/colleague, childhood friend least of the least (in the eyes of many) and most importantly, a child of to convey a message to the masses or God. What gives society the right to to demonstrate his awesome power. attach labels such as junkie, addict, While church wasn’t a high priority dope fiend, wino, drunk or any other in embarking on my initial journey negative, degrading or demeaning label of recovery, I knew at some point I to someone struggling with addiction? would choose to enter God’s house Why the need to stigmatize people. again based on my upbringing. When Have we lost compassion or the ability I finally did I wonder if I would have to empathize with someone struggling crossed the threshold if I had walked with addiction? up to a message that read … alcoholics, crack heads and sinners welcome.

Think On These Things By Reverend Juanita G. Wingo

Make the Ditches! This saith the Lord, Make this valley full of ditches. For thus saith the Lord, Ye shall not see wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water. 2 Kings 3:16-18

There was no sign of wind or rain. Yet in the morning, the country was filled with water! We will not always see God work. But what He says will come to pass. We may not know ahead of time how He will do what He says He will do, yet what He says will come to pass. God’s word will not return to Him void. It will do what He sends it out to do. If God told you something will happen, get ready for it. Even if there is no sign of rain, dig your ditches. Get your containers out. Prepare to receive what the Lord is sending. Prepare for it. Take the necessary steps to be in position to use what God will give

• Open that bank account. • Do your research. • Gather your support. • Write your business plan.

Don’t wait to see the water, get ready for the downpour. Prepare to receive your blessing. Don’t just stand there gazing at the skies, wondering if the rain really will come. Get ready for what God has promised. Trust and obey. In the end God will always come through. You will always triumph.
