Collinsville, Perseverance and Apotheosis
I stopped by the Principal's office at Collinsville High School to tell him I was moved by the word of the Month on the Marquee Billboard of the School on US HWY 11, CHS my Momma's alma mater.
Front page story in the Bham News today is about Hispanic Students staying home 200 strong in some places across NE Alabama yesterday.
Perseverance is the word of the Month.
I have gotten word just this morning in person to the Pastor of the FUMC Ft. Payne and staff of FBC Ft. Payne, the county seat; and in email to Bishop Willimon about Perseverance.
Fred Shuttlesworth died last week. Bishop Willimon blogged about his passing with implications for the Immigration struggle here in Bama at this moment.
Coincidentally, serendipitously, I have been reading once again my fellow Baptist preacher's son, Marshall Frady, my Hero; Frady's Chapter on Birmingham and Shuttlesworth moment in the spotlight with King. Frady Titled that chapter: Apotheosis.
Two good words.
