This poem is my feeble attempt to express the gratitude and love I feel for God and the church family that He placed me in at such a time as this in my life. It’s like God placed me in the center circle of His love, safe and secure to grow to new levels and strive to live as my highest most holy self. My spirit unfolds and blossoms in the humble, authentic, transparent and genuine extension of God’s love from pastor and people. Thank you, Church! Thank you, God!

"Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God." (1 John 4:7)

Dear Pastor and Min. Lady McKnight,
Mothers, Leaders, Congregation and Clergy:

It is indeed my privilege and pleasure
to be one with this Apostolic Temple Family.

God led me to this church,
where love abounds
and His word is boldly preached,
demonstrated and sound.

Beloved Apostolic Temple
of Jesus Christ,
You embraced me from day one
and have uplifted my life.

You accepted me completely
and the love you’ve shown
makes me weep in gratitude
and saturates my soul.

God strategically planted me
in this sacred place
of sincere compassion
and unfailing grace.

Where I praise freely
and take part in ministry,
where I am challenged to grow
and be my best spiritually.

Thank you family
from my heart to yours
I am blessed to know you
and your presence I adore.

Let’s continually rejoice together
every chance we get;
trusting God, in full faith,
that all our needs are met.


Be blessed,

Jo Anne Meekins
