The world’s spotlight on Ferguson appeared to be all
tragedy ... at first.
Then our God ignited a fire in His people!
Good things were ... and are ... happening ... without
the cameras of the media about.
Much seeking of God ... much prayer ... much repenting ...
much focus on biblical unity among God’s people just as Jesus Christ prayed for
in his priestly prayer in John 17:20-23.
Lynne Jackson, a
born-again follower of Jesus – helping plan and attending the “We Are One” Ferguson
Jan 25 event of repentance and biblical unity -- is the
great-great-granddaughter of Dred and Harriet Scott. As the 150th anniversary
in 2008 of the infamous Dred Scott decision was approaching in 2008, ... a
court decision in the mid 1800’s that black Americans were something less than
human ... Lynne formed and led The Dred Scott Heritage Foundation (www.thedredscottfoundation.org).
That court decision was a commemoration to remember and not a celebration.
Good results included the placing of an impacting life-sized
statue of Dred and Harriet on the southeast quarter of the lawn of the Old House
in St. Louis, MO ...1/2 mile west of the St. Louis Arch.
With the 2014 tragic events centered in Ferguson, Lynne
Jackson ... and many others like her ... sought God for solutions and saw at
work. They were to see the Kingdom of God advance.
