Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., pastor emeritus of the historic Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Illinois, releases his new book on February 25, 2010, titled, "A Sankofa Moment: The History of Trinity United Church of Christ." "A Sankofa Moment" gives the 48-year history of the Trinity United Church of Christ with a major emphasis on the building of the largest United Church of Christ congregation within the denomination that developed several ministries and several entities under the pastorate of Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.
"A Sankofa Moment" refers to the following:
The Akan people of Africa have an important symbol known as Sankofa. It is expressed in the Asante Adinkra symbols as a bird whose body is heading in one direction, but whose head is turned in the opposite direction. What the symbol is teaching is that we cannot go forward without first going back to our past to understand how it is we got to where we are (Introduction, pg. 17).
This fascinating read will be released on February 25, 2010 by St. Paul Press. Be sure to get a copy and be sure to tell family and friends.
The Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. is a man of faith, a homiletic genius, a theological scholar and a pastor's pastor. He is a family man who enjoys spending quality time with his wife, children, grandchildren, extended family and friends. Dr. Wright is Pastor Emeritus of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, IL.
Dr. Gardner C. Taylor, the "Dean of Black Preaching", had this to say as the Center for African American Theological Studies inaugurated its Annual Lecture in honor of Dr. Wright:
"People who love the Lord and who embrace the noblest concepts of our democracy will enthusiastically applaud the establishment of the Reverend Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr. Lectureship. The Lectureship appropriately salutes the Pastor and mentor who prepared President Barack Obama for the role of President of the United States.
"Mr. Obama had hardly any grasp of the meaning of being a Black person in the United States. By example and exhortation, Reverend Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., cured that deficiency, sending to Washington a President qualified to give America a chance to actually become a democracy!"
