I don’t claim to know Rev. Jeremiah Wright well. What I do know is the times I have bee in his presence I have been mesmerized by his brilliance, his love for a liberative God in Jesus and his love for people. He is so accessible. Anyone can walk up to him, talk to him and you can see how he cares for them. He gives them his full attention. He listens and looks with a pastors heart.
Rev. Wright isn’t into celebrity he is into to people. This image represents how I see him. As I was taking pictures last Wednesday night at Ebenezer Baptist Church Rev. Wright took time to greet and talk to everyone in line. He gave special attention to each kid that came through the line to shake his hand. He bent down and talked to them and he asked, “Do you want a picture?” The kids would smile, because they had felt the genuine love Rev. Wright had for them. He would take time to pose with them and take the picture.
Above all Rev. Wright is a pastor with a pastor’s heart. He cares for people and it shows. You can feel the love when you are around him. I thank God for pastors like Rev. Dr. Jeremiah Wright. When we love God by definition we are called to love people. How do you know what know about Rev. Wright?
