Playing Time



This mother’s day recording opens with Bishop Dell delivering a prayer and the congregation greeting each other. Children read thank you letters to their mothers and grandmothers, followed by singing. Dell acknowledges and praises the elder mothers in the congregation, including Mamie Holsty, Ola McAffie, and Mother Sneed. Dell reads Matthew 15, and talks about a Greek woman coming to Israel with a daughter who was vexed by the devil. He talks about how God doesn’t care about wealth or status, and how people need to be humble before God, as He will do what is right for the circumstances.
