Albany pastor, professor writes book

ALBANY, Ga. -- Eugene Sermon Jr., founding pastor of Institutional First Baptist Church and retired emeritus professor of sociology at Albany State University, has published a book titled "The Abundant Life (A Biblical Approach)," which is available at Amazon.com.

"The book is written to address four separate aspects of our lives," Sherman said, "Those are the arenas of physical status, social contact, financial status and spirituality."

Sherman said the book is not intended to offer a "quick fix" for any problems of humanity, but simply to provide some new perspectives on living.

"Hopefully, it will provide direction, comfort and inspiration for the reader in search of an abundant life," Sherman said. "It's intended to give an individual an perceptual anchor -- not just in terms of having money or wealth, but in a physical or health sense. That's an abundance. Having good friends and finding spirituality -- that's an abundance. The Bible teaches us that God will provide for our needs."

Sherman also maintains a website at www.biblicalechoes.com, pertaining to his ministry and related information.

Yes Brother, it's really amazing what God will do to provide for our needs expecially for those willing to work for it, to get their ass out of bed in the early morning, go to work, break a sweat, do more than is expected, exceed customer expectations, and strive for Excellence.

That's what God likes to see.

Yes, sister Ruby, that is what Albany has not figured out. The Republican party has given minorities more opportunity to raise themselves out of the yoke of poverty. They were given opportunities to own homes and have jobs. The Democratic party wants the give away programs that keep them in poverty. Which is better for them and the country? We all know the answer for that. Give away programs buy votes, but they do nothing to help the receiver. Study the internet, it is all there and do not listen to your preacher, open your eyes. Be not deceived. Also read Thomas Sowell's articles in the paper. Great writer.
