Deacon Benjamin Franklin Flagg was recognized as a special honoree at Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church during Annual Day. Flagg is a long time member and leader of the Good Will Bible Class and a long-time Nashville citizen as the owner and barber of Flagg’s Barber Shop on the corner of Claiborne St. and Murfreesboro Rd. for decades. Be sure to read his complete story next week.
The worship service was held last Sunday, July 18, with the presence of Rev. Enoch Fuzz who was given a special thanks.
“Even in the midst of all you go through, you continue to put others in the light,” said the coordinators of this special occasion.
Fifty-two weeks of journaling constitutes an entire year of messages and information. During this week-by-week account of Rev. Fuzz, pastor of Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church, readers have learned lots about more than just a day-to-day or week-to-week synopsis of Rev. Fuzz’s physical journey and the toll of stage four lung cancer. I’ve chronicled the way Enoch Fuzz moves through the community as an advocate for injustices, the well-being of others’ assistance and being an ambassador of kindness to his fellow man. Hopefully, sharing this journey has been a word of encouragement, empowerment and divine transparency to God’s grace.
This week, Fuzz wanted to share the legacy of one of his long-time trusted deacons. He often wants to share the contributions of other people that cross paths in his life. Therefore, this installment is just another expression of Fuzz’s journey with cancer. It’s not a journey that he takes alone.
There are many people in his life that Fuzz have followed, walked side-by-side with and even led. As the pastor of Corinthian, Rev. Fuzz is grateful to have leaders in his church who are able to take the reigns in his absence. However, he is also grateful to now be able to attend church. (Anyone who knows Fuzz, knows that sitting still during church is not the easiest thing for him to do.) While many programs at the church are on hiatus due to the pandemic, ministries such as Bible Study and the Sunday service maintain operations with the help of other pastors, deacons and dedicated church members.
Rev. Fuzz is still progressing, even with a ways to go. Keep on praying, for each prayer is the light to yet another day! As he continues to progress in his illness, Fuzz said it is important to know: “My doctor said that the best thing for healing is sleep.” Sleep heals the body and he gets his rest as per “doctor’s orders.”
While you pray for Rev. Enoch Fuzz, trust and know that he is also in continuous prayer for you, the sick, the shut in, the hospitalized, those in nursing homes, those in healthcare facilities and also for those that are doing well. Visit his Facebook site where you will find him sharing his concern and praise in pictures, testimony and song. As we continue to follow God’s guide, keep following his weekly journey, ‘Cancer: My Journey in Time.’ Also, here’s a special note of thanks for continuing to read and share this journey. May it be a blessing in your life.
