Despite the turmoil reported many times a day by more news outlets than can be followed, people loving and embracing people, God’s children, continues to rise above the fray.
KNOXVILLE, TN (January 2020) – From Pastor Barbara Jackson, “I went to the Knox County Clerk’s office today to get my passport renewed. I signed in and sat next to these people and told them “I’m going to flop right here.” I sat down and continued to talk to the people on the bench with me.”
“This sweet couple was there to get married. I said, ‘well I’m a licensed clergy I don’t mind to do it for you.’ I talked with the couple intensely for a little bit about their responsibility to each other in the eyesight of God. My number was called and I proceeded to get my passport picture and information updated. When I returned to my seat the young lady had changed into her wedding apparel, and shortly after I had the honor and pleasure at the Knox County Clerk’s office (at the front entrance) to perform the wedding service for the love birds.”
