Tickets to the March 10 No Longer Bound anniversary luncheon are still available

TITUSVILLE, FL — Alveda King, director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, will receive the Champion of Life Award from No Longer Bound, an abortion/miscarriage ministry, on March 10 at Faithful Central Bible Church in Inglewood, CA.

Ms. King also will be the keynote speaker at the event, which will begin at 11 a.m. PT. KKLA Radio host Frank Sontag will be the master of ceremonies.

“Evangelist King was sought out to receive the award because her steadfast commitment to promote the sanctity of human life as embedded in the Word of God is inspiring, is the model of courage, and is anointed,” said Tegra Little, founder | director of No Longer Bound, at Faithful Central Bible Church, where Bishop Kenneth C. Ulmer is the Senior Pastor-Teacher.

“No Longer Bound is privileged not only to honor Evangelist King, but also to hear her message at a time and in a culture where the lives of the unborn remain at high risk and men and women continue to suffer from their past abortion or miscarriage experience.”

Ms. King is the daughter of the late civil rights activist Rev. A.D. King and his wife, Naomi Barber King. She grew up in the civil rights movement led by her uncle, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. She sees the pro-life movement as a continuation of the civil rights struggle.

Ms. King works fulltime for Priests for Life, as Director of “Civil Rights for the Unborn.” A former college professor who also served in the Georgia State House of Representatives, Ms. King is a best-selling author, a regular columnist for Newsmax and a Fox News contributor. Her latest book is “King Truths: 21 Keys to Unlocking Your Spiritual Potential.” A resident of Atlanta, she is also a spokeswoman for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign.

“Having Alveda as part of our team at Priests for Life is a great blessing for the movement,” said Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. “We all know how deserving of this award she is, and our whole Priests for Life family thanks No Longer Bound for honoring one of our team members in this way.”

“I am so honored to be receiving this award from No Longer Bound,” Ms. King said. “Its members know, as I do, the pain of losing a child to abortion and they have experienced the healing that can only come from God. I am proud to stand with them and thrilled to have a chance to speak at the eighth anniversary luncheon.”

Tickets are available for the event and may be purchased by visiting shop-faithful.myshopify.com Tickets cannot be purchased at the door.

Statement on the passing of Dr. Billy Graham

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018

Atlanta, GA. – “Dr. Billy Graham has departed earth to receive A Warrior’s Reward. Many will note the many contributions of the life and legacy of Dr. Billy Graham today in honor and recognition of this great Christian warrior who has reached millions of lives for Christ during his 99 years on earth.

“As a fledgling freelance journalist in the 20th century, I interviewed Dr. Graham who was in Atlanta to conduct a crusade. As he spoke, he admonished me to “pray without ceasing.” As he spoke, his brilliant blue eyes were glowing with a heavenly brightness. As I naively asked how anyone could pray 24/7; he quietly responded in a reverberating voice: “I’m praying for you right now.” This unforgettable experience changed my life forever.

“The lives of my family have been personally intertwined with those of Dr. Graham and his family throughout our lifetime. My “Uncle ML,” Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ministered with Dr. Billy in New York at Madison Square Gardens during the 1950s. Together, in living color, bridging the racial divide, they debunked the colorblind myth; revealing the mystery of Acts 16:26 – One Blood, One Human Race. They are pictured together during their meeting. The photo is printed with permission in my book KING TRUTHS.

MLK with Billy Graham

“My friend Victoria Hearst, founder of Praise Him Ministries and granddaughter of legendary newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst has shared with me her grandfather’s role in bringing Dr. Graham’s ministry to the forefront in the media.

“One prayer warrior, known as Mrs. Edwards, felt a supernatural compulsion to call media mogul Hearst and tell him about Billy Graham. Hearst was so impressed that he ordered his massive press machine to “puff up” the then young Christian evangelist Billy Graham. The rest is now history.

“Today I join America and the world in prayers for the Graham family; not just mourning their loss, as Dr. Graham will be sorely missed; but also celebrating the life of this precious man of God.”

Often we discover that throughout history some of our greatest “minds” have never been limited to one scope of creativity. Thus the poet can also chart the stars, the physicist can paint remarkable portraits, the composer can weld the surgeon’s scalpel; the architect can program computers; and so on and so forth. These gifts are not confined to genre, skin color, class, nurture, nature, age or gender. They are divine blessings to humanity.

Alveda King: Appointment to Frederick Douglass Commission is “a blessing”

Friday, February 9th, 2018

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: February 8, 2018

ATLANTA — Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, said she is grateful and honored to have been named to serve on the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission by President Trump.

“Black History Month is full of surprises this year,” Ms. King said. “President Donald J. Trump has honored one of my heroes, Frederick Douglass, by forming the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission. It’s a blessing to serve America as a new member of the Commission.”

The 16-member Commission was established by an act of Congress and signed into law by President Trump last November.

Douglass was born into slavery in 1818 on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and rose to become one of the nation’s most eloquent and passionate abolitionists. He led the effort to allow black men – including two of his sons — to fight in the Union Army and, through his friendship with President Lincoln, ensured that emancipation of the slaves was a goal of the Civil War. He also served in various capacities under Presidents Rutherford, Hayes, Harrison and Grant.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, noted that the appointment was one of several honors Ms. King has received from President Trump. She was invited to the White House Rose Garden ceremony in May 2016 when the president signed an executive order on religious liberty. Ms. King was with the president a year ago when he toured the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African-American History and Culture. She also was on board Air Force One in January when President Trump established the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, Georgia’s first national historic park.

“The appointment to the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission is an honor for Alveda King and it’s an honor for our Priests for Life family of ministries,” Father Pavone said. “We are very proud that she will be providing input on ways to honor such an important American leader.”

Presidential Appointment, Black History Tour, Ram in Thicket, CBC Fallout signal One Blood Racial Reconciliation

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

Starting with a new Presidential Appointment, Black History Month is full of surprises this year.

President Donald J. Trump has honored one of my heroes, Frederick Douglass with the empowering of “The Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission.” It’s a blessing to serve America as a new member of the Commission.

Moving ahead, let’s reflect on the President’s campaign promises to address racism by ensuring us that “when we give everyone a great America; safety, security, a reason to belong, that will serve the issue.” The President also stated early on in his post as Commander in Chief, that: “No matter what color our skin is, we all bleed red.” His insight into the One Blood truth, coupled with his frequent reminders that: “We don’t serve government, we serve God; in God we trust” are encouraging to say the least.

The month started off with the launch of my annual Black History Tour; this time from Titusville, FL – new home of Priests for Life where I’m Director of Civil Rights for The Unborn. It was a blessing to visit local schools and the Titusville campus of Eastern Florida State College.

Meanwhile, the Congressional Black Caucus sat down on the job during President Trump’s inspiring State of the Union Address. The petulant actions of the majority of The CBC are crippling the dreams of America, and must be addressed; expect to hear more from activists for genuine social justice this month.

It was also a blessing to give a “Black History Shout Out” at the 2018 Rose Day Rally in Oklahoma.

It’s also important to note that while we are One Blood/One Race (Acts 17:26), the Black/African American Community still celebrates a month of educating the masses regarding many notable contributions of Blacks in America that are unknown and undocumented in certain historical annals. These efforts are designed to unite us; never to divide us. Herein is a key to unlocking Racial Reconciliation.

There’s been a flurry of discourse regarding the Dodge Ram commercial featuring the voice of MLK with community service as a theme. On a positive note, many are saying that the ad sparked them to find the entire MLK speech and listen to it. That’s millennials for you; ever seeking truth. The line about “a heart to serve” with the ultrasound of the baby’s heartbeat was definitely a kind of Ram in the Bush “aha” moment.

Coming up this month:
White House Black History Event
Launch of King Family Legacy Library at Millennium Gate Museum

Finally, please remember to pray for America, and watch out for KING TRUTHS and the upcoming Roe v Wade movie.
