Pastor Mack T. Flemmings ! What a Man ! What a Pastor!
I had the pleasure of attending the Freedom Missionary Baptist Church, Presidential Inaugural Ball Jan. 20, 2009. 6:30 PM in the Fellowship hall next door to the church.
As I entered the building I did not recognize the hallway, it was beautifully decorated with red, white and blue balloons perfectly placed. A large backdrop of the Presidential seal was there so attendees could take pictures. Entering the Ball room I though I was in the Fairmont Hotel. Everything was there, the table covering, table decoration, table souvenirs with Presidential seal. The young Adult ministry did not miss a beat. I attended Clinton inaugural and went to the Arkansas Ball, believe me these young people covered it all, with sit down dinner, DJ and non alcohol champagne. I spoke on the comparison of President Obama’s victory and King David.
Pastor Flemmings and his Sister Judy King had the first dance and others followed. The Ball had an over flow crowd. The Ball was also approved by the Presidential inaugural committee and listed on the Official web site of President Obama inaugural activities. The ball was wonderful and Pastor Flemmings was great to have the idea of hosting the Ball. So many members wanted to witness history and be a past of it so the Pastor accommodated us and the Public was invited. Freedom Missionary Baptist Church will now be listed in the History of the 44th and First Black President.
We also received a Thank You from President Obama for hosting the ball. This was indeed a people’s inaugural.
Thank Pastor Mack T. Flemmings for taking a leap towards change and understanding that joy come from the Lord. The bible says make a joyful noise to the Lord. King David dances and shouted full of joy for the Lord.
