A good day to live—October Appreciation Month

Rev. Enoch Fuzz

October kicks off the beginning of the end-of-the-year holidays. Yes, Halloween is considered a holiday. Yet different people have different thoughts about Halloween because it’s also considered a ‘scary’ type of holiday. Although it may have frightening aspects, there are also fun features because it is a time of receiving and giving multitudes of candy, dressing up and partying fun! But then it leads into the next month of November, a time of ‘giving thanks.’

As for the Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church at 819 33rd Ave. N., the month of October has been Pastor Appreciation Month for Rev. Enoch Fuzz, its pastor. This being mid-October, the celebration continues. On the fifth Sunday, Elder James Mooney of Huntsville, Alabama, will deliver Corinthian’s sermon at the 11 a.m. observance of the church’s Annual Choir Day.

Elder Mooney started playing keyboard for the children’s choir at Corinthian when he was 11 years old. He is now the senior pastor of the Mother Church of the Primitive Baptist denomination of America. Elder Mooney is also currently enrolled in Divinity School at the renowned Howard University in Washington, D.C.

Before Nashville native Elder Mooney’s sermon, Rev. Dr. Frank Stevenson, senior pastor of Nashville’s Friendship Baptist Church City of Grace, will conclude Appreciation Month as the special guest speaker at Corinthian.

As this month closes out, the extraordinary display of affection has been overwhelming. Rev Enoch Fuzz said: “There are no words sufficient to express the gratitude and humility I feel for the tremendous outpouring of support from the Corinthian Baptist Church members in particular and to the many Nashville community friends in general.”

As the month closes, readers are asked to continue to pray for the continuous healing in Rev. Fuzz’s journey. As we should have discovered, prayers are a manifestation of God’s promise.

“Through the love and prayers of my members and friends, God has wrought a great healing in my body,” said Rev. Fuzz. “This is the Lord’s doing and it’s marvelous before our eyes. Today is a good day to live.” 

Please read next week’s epistle: ‘It’s all downhill.’ And continue to watch for Rev. Fuzz’s posts on Meta—and be informed and encouraged by reading the weekly column ‘Cancer: My Journey in Time.’
