Pastor R.A.Vernon and The Word Church Present "The Casket Crusades!"
Reader Dr. R. A. Vernon and The Word Church present today July 15,2017 The Casket Crusades, where the goal was to shed light on the alarming number of people dying in our communities due to drug abuse and violence. They march through some of the hardest hit areas with men carrying caskets on their shoulders, to symbolize the burden we all share when a life is taken. Each march concluded with a powerful, uplifting word from Dr. Vernon.
When a person understands the value of life…they are less likely to readily take the life of another, or engage in activities that would cut their own life short.
By the same token, when they’re aware that death could occur at any time, to anyone, of any age, they are more inclined to build a positive legacy, abandon destructive habits, and live in a manner that promotes the wellbeing of self, family, and community.
