Once again radio with Dred and Harriet Scott descendant Lynne Jackson reveals good things. A very major focus of Lynne is about “Blessed are the peacemakers …” (The words of Jesus from the ‘Sermon on the Mount’ … found in Matthew 5:9).
For, once again, she is bringing together descendants of famous people of history whose ancestors formerly were often in far different “worlds,” having far different “worldviews,” often with very clear hostilities.
Among them are descendants of …
* Peter Blow, owners of Dred and Harriet Scott;
* Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy during America’s Civil War;
* Thomas Jefferson, third President of the United States;
* Dred and Harriet Scott, slaves at the time whose legal cases were significant factors in bringing an end of slavery in the United States; and …
* Roger Taney of the United States Supreme Court who officially read the Court’s negative decision regarding Dred Scott and all, at the time, African-Americans.
This particular gathering — similar to other occasions revealed in the links below — is that of “The National Judicial College’s Symposium on Reconciliation and Ethnic Fairness in the Courts.” It is a specialized event primarily for judges around the United States, convened in St. Louis, Missouri. In leadership are the honorable Missouri Supreme Court Judge George W. Draper III and St. Louis Circuit Court Associate Judge Judy Draper, husband and wife.
A wonderful tribute to the commitment of Christian slaves (before the Civil War) is the fact that … in the 1840’s – they began, founded, the First Baptist Church of Chesterfield, MO (located in what is now the western part of St. Louis County). Even today, the church is and has been a major factor in the lives of Lynne Jackson’s parents (now with the Lord), other family members, and Lynne herself.
The church’s pastor, Dr. T. D. Stubblefield, has served the church and Jesus for many years. Dr. Stubblefield is a longtime broadcaster with Bott Radio Network (www.bottradionetwork.com), owner of the station where these radio broadcasts with Lynne Jackson first aired.
