AIDS WALK & commUNITY Picnic, September 13, 2014.

Greetings Folks, I want to encourage all of our Lorain and Northeast Ohio Residents to mark this September 13th on their calendars and join me in this walk for a cure and awareness of this debilitating disease.There is power in knowledge and strength in unity for this type of cause. We are all brothers and sisters in Christ, and though we in this ministry have drawn the proverbial line in the sand on a social issue of immorality and perversion, I have said many times that I would cross over that line in order to help our brothers and sisters who may be lost to the understanding of the faith and will of the Lord for their lives. No I will not preach to them for it is not that type of event. It is however, an opportunity to show Christs love and unity for a cause.

With that said, I truly do encourage you to come and walk with me along side of those needing support on this important heath issue which knows no discrimination. It is not a “Gay or Homosexual”, issue. It is a community and national health issue. It is a disease that can affect anyone and we as Christians are to do as God commands us which is to “Love our neighbors as ourselves”, and it is with this spirit I will continue to do as our Lord directs and a disease and cause such as this fits that criteria.

We do not hate those that believe differently than us but, love all mankind equally no matter what is affecting them or by Race, Creed, Color, Nationality Religious belief or Sexual orientation.

We live in a world that is lost and needs compassion and love of Christ to shine on all. This is why we except Christ’s ways over our own personal and spiritual ideology. We are a community, a family under God and I do support this cause because it is a program of awareness and unity. Which is Christ’s way.

Sincerely IHS and yours,
Bishop Andrew Manley (+)
