The Cathedral of Grace - St. John honors those who have been affected by Domestic Violence. If you are in danger call 911. Or reach the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 or TTY 1-800-787-3224. #faith#peace#justice#awareness#dvam#domesticviolenceawareness

Today’s Lenten reflection comes from Master of Arts in Music Ministry student, La’Quentin Jenkins. He writes: The Praise Band at my church, The Cathedral of Grace: St. John A.M.E., and I celebrating Ash Wednesday and the start of the Lenten season. Before our rehearsal we discussed the importance of consecration and intentional time with God in this season. We also discussed appropriate musical selections during this season and how our music can lead us into a deeper place of reflection, prayer and worship.
