The Liturgical Calendar: The Church Remembers

Today the church remembers Richard Allen, First Bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, 1831.

Read the Wikipedia article here.

Loving God, your servant Richard Allen was born a slave, but in you he learned that he was your beloved child by adoption in Jesus Christ, and by the power of the Holy Spirit was led to proclaim liberty to his captive people: Give us strength to proclaim your freedom to the captives of our world; through Jesus Christ, Savior of all, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
