Leaders Endorse Civic Engagement Action Plan: A Call To Colors – Part I
 
With the crucial 2018 mid-term elections looming large, with the 2020 presidential and gubernatorial contests not long after, leaders in North Carolina are joining together to implement a non-partisan civic engagement action plan, “A Call to Colors,” to promote 100% voter registration and participation on the state’s HBCU campuses.

 

Led by the North Carolina Black Leadership Caucus (NCBLC), the call is for the North Carolina NAACP, the Pan-Hellenic Councils, the Prince Hall Masons and the Eastern Stars, to spearhead the drive to get sororities, fraternities and other student organizations fully involved and mobilized for civic engagement.

The Living Word
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 (International Children’s Bible)

 

16: The Lord himself will come down from heaven. There will be a loud command with the voice of the archangel[a] and with the trumpet call of God. And those who have died and were in Christ will rise first.

 

17: After that, those who are still alive at that time will be gathered up with them. We will be taken up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And we will be with the Lord forever.

 

18: So comfort each other with these words.
