And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

"Psalm 1:3, (KJV).

You are cordially invited to join us for our First Annual Rev. Dr. Richard Douglass Lectures to be held on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 7pm at the Zion Hill Missionary Baptist Church 250 Dr. Samuel McCree Way Rochester, New York.

Our speaker will be the Rev. Dr. J. Esther Rowe who has done great work on the Black Church.

The Rev. Dr. Richard Douglass Lectures on the Black Christian Church is to provide an ongoing intellectual conversation-within the Church among black theologians, pastors, lay leaders and laity-on the nature and, mission for the Church in an ever changing environment.

The goal is self-definition. Believers that are born in this tradition have an obligation to define the nature of the beliefs and practices they embrace. The Black Christian Church with its unique calling, born out of rejection and the cistern of slavery, owes it to itself to discuss issues of faith formed by the great cloud of witnesses that sought to stay true to the belief that the God of the Bible and the God of the Black Christian Church is the God of history and hope.

These lectures will provide an opportunity to wrestle with the beliefs that guide us, the values that challenge us, and the paradoxes that confound us. We do this without seeking permission from others, but we do illicit the perennial guidance of the Holy Ghost.

It is my hope that these ongoing conversations will produce a people who have an enduring faith in Jesus Christ in a post-modern world.

For more information or to RSVP, please call the church at (585)328-4660.
