“Let justice roll down like a river and righteousness like a mighty stream.”
Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,
I give thanks to God for you and sincerely appreciate the faithfulness, resilience and love for the Lord Jesus Christ and Metropolitan that you have shown during this extended restoration endeavor and the more recent issues we unexpectedly faced at the Madison Hotel. Most of us have been uncomfortable crossing the picket line and many have voiced concerns and stated your position regarding the labor dispute.

Our faith gives us the courage, strength and wisdom to understand that we must be willing to make some sacrifices in difficult times.
