God’s heart for peoples’ empowerment fueled by the efforts of a North Portland congregation, Celebration Tabernacle and her people, to get involvedIt’s in community by building and showing common poeple that it was absolutely righteous to dream, to aim for goals one would think would be unobtainable for lack of resources and fiducial prowess.
Watching dreamers has constantly called me and the congregation to the greater purpose of community, “To lend a hand up to those who desire to climb”,
It’s not good enough to say we shall overcome, it’s imperative we do overcome
It’s not good enough to simply wish when it is possible to have and to hold
It’s not enough to just hang on to hope but to be pulled up by “I knew that I could”
It’s people like you in this room and this council that give us our wind and our hope by recognizing our efforts and we will continue to try to do even better to represent this our great city. – Pastor E.D. Mondaine Thanks to the City of Portland, Mayor Charlie Hales, Council Members for recognizing these special gifted people and their efforts in building our community.
