Greetings and prayers on this first day of March, this first day of Women’s History Month and this Mardi Gras and/or Shrove Tuesday.

Again, our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine as they face the terror inducing might of the Russian Army. You can send contributions to LABC marked Ukraine and, through One Great Hour of Sharing, it will be sent to the Ukranian Baptists as well as to the European Baptist Union which is responding to the needs of many of the persons forced to flee Ukraine.

Closer to home, I helped craft the attached response to the crisis facing many households of the Oakland Unified School District in respect to the mandated closure of at least seven OUSD schools.

Jesus was a student, a lifelong student. In Women’s History Month I will be teaching about the women who taught Jesus. As his followers we need to be vigilant in the support of quality education.
