My King!

25 Jul

Here is a short video that contains the words of Dr. Shadrach Meshach (S.M) Lockridge, the pastor of Calvary Baptist Church, a prominent African-American church located in San Diego, California. He was known for his preaching across the United States at many meetings, gatherings and rallies, reaching the powerful and the meek. He was also highly active in the Civil Rights Movement and during his time, the Calvary Baptist Church played host to several leading figures such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rev. Jesse Jackson.

“His unique, powerful, preaching gift opened doors for him that transcended racial boundaries.”  Rev. Timothy Winters of Bayview Baptist Church.

However, his most famous incident occured when he was attending a Conference during his time as a pastor. Now the different sources i’ve used all seem to slight bit of variation on the issue but from what I can gather, he was asked to get up and say a few words for a short time, before the main speaker began his series of talks for the day…..watch the video to hear Dr. Lockridge’s words.

Amen.

Do you know Him?
