Forty-plus clergy and church leaders from a number of denominations and churches gathered on Sept. 22 in Washington, D.C., for an ACLC Clergy Bible Forum. Archbishop George A. Stallings, Jr. and Dr. Michael Jenkins, National Co-Chairs of ACLC, led the group through a deep investigation of the coming of Jesus, his course and his crucifixion. Archbishop Stallings, using Luke 5: 37-38, told the group of clergy that “we must become new wineskins today to receive the new wine that God is asking us to drink.” [Read more…]

He had just returned from Korea, where he and a dozen other American clergy took part in the International Leadership Conference sponsored by the Universal Peace Federation.

September 1 was a very blessed day in Colony, Oklahoma, in which God’s glory was poured out on all the Native nations. Seven ACLC members participated in the annual national pow-wow of the Cheyenne-Arapaho nation, which takes place every Labor Day weekend. The weekend honors Native culture, and traditionally includes gift-giving, honoring veterans, many traditional dances and much fellowship over three days.
Since 2013 ACLC and Women In Ministry have participated and supported the national pow-wow through gifts of love & friendship, prayers and the Blessings of Heaven. Rev. Panana of the Clinton Indian Baptist Church introduced ACLC. Rev. Marilyn Kotulek as our spokesperson, reiterated the cordial history between our ACLC and WIM and the Cheyenne Arapaho nations, that began with the forgiveness ceremony in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, for the Trail of Tears and continued through our yearly appearances at powwows and conferences for both the unity amongst native peoples and blessings for the native peoples. She gave God the glory and offered gratitude to the tribes for their understanding, love and acceptance, for we are all one in the Lord. She gave a short report about how Rev. Chief George Akeen, who is recovering from heat stroke, and Rev. Paul Beartrack, whose grandson recently passed, could not attend. With that the planning committee invited us to join the dance, accompanied by beautiful gourd dancers and drummers.
We were graciously received. The seven of us joined in a special honor dance to unite all of God’s sons and daughters. We encountered a fresh strong wind of the spirit as we were dancing. We truly believe the Lord breathed His breath on this special occasion. On this beautiful autumn night the stars were shining bright in the heartland of Oklahoma.
The light of God’s spirit went forth as a beacon to all the world. We believe God’s redeemed saints who are gloriously radiant in His righteousness will continue to advance His kingdom. We will march to the beat of His drum and be led of His spirit to accomplish all things. – Rev. Marilyn Kotulek
