To “Rebuild the family” in today’s challenging social environment, congregations are looking again at God’s plan for the family.
On Sunday, July 29th, the ACLC of Los Angeles held an Interfaith Blessing and Celebration of Marriage and Family in the Festival Hall of the Old World Village in Huntington Beach, CA. An array of participants from the interfaith community expressed prayers and remarks on the family as God’s essential foundation for growth, peace and security in our community and our world.

We pray that the Lord is Blessing you and your church family. We are happy to invite you and your spouse and other couples from your church to a “A Celebration and Blessing of Marriage – Renewing Our Vows Before the Lord”, to be held on Saturday, August 18th, 2018 from 4-5:30 PM (doors open at 3:30) followed by a reception at 5:30 pm at the New Yorker Grand Ballroom, 481 8th Ave. at 34th and 8th Ave.
We are deeply inspired by the words of Jesus when he shared in Matthew 19:5 -6 “… and the two shall become one… therefore what God has joined together, let no man separate.” The Blessing of Marriage came through the anointing of Jesus Christ on Father and Mother Moon and it represents the extension of the grace of God from the individual to the family. We have seen miracles occur when couples pledge in love before God to be faithful to God and to each other and to never separate.
At the blessing a move of the Holy Spirit occurs that provides a “covering” over the couple in marriage in which they receive Divine protection and inspiration to make their dreams of True Love become real.
During this historic event we will also be honoring outstanding Parents of the Year in honor of National Parents Day which is a National Holiday following Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. In addition we will also be selecting outstanding couples who have served the community to become Ambassadors for Peace.
We invite all Pastors to come with the exemplary couples from your church to receive a special blessing and lift up our families in God’s image. Also singles whose spouse is in heaven may also come and receive the blessing in honor of their family. Jesus said in John 14:12, “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater works than these…” With this anointing we are confident that “greater works” to help our family and community will be done by heaven through the beautiful couples anointed by heaven.

“In the early church there was danger and disunity. But we must make every effort to keep the unity among us, prevent things from dividing us. In practice we sometimes allow secondary things to divide us. If you don’t have love on the inside, you can’t keep that bond of unity… Let us do our part by building that unity not only in the church but also in the wider community…. Jesus revealed that God’s whole effort through human history has been to prepare the way to bring us back into the Garden, to bring marriage back into the Garden.”
A Marriage Rededication Marriage Blessing and holy wine ceremony was held at the AACC-African American Catholic Congregation Imani Temple of the Capital Region, on Sunday March 26, 2017, also observed as “Black Marriage Day.” This Blessing ceremony was very special to the Imani community as a whole as it was held on the heels of the weekend men’s retreat.
The 2016 Labor Day weekend in Oklahoma began with an earthquake registering 5.6 on the Richter scale. Fortunately there were no injuries and there was only minor damage to the Embassy Suites Oklahoma City Airport where an ACLC Women In Ministry conference was held. On the other side of the country, Hurricane Hermine prevented Archbishop Stallings from attending the conference.
