t is my honor to welcome all of you to the 56th Annual Session of our beloved PNBC. This year, our theme is “IN GOD WE TRUST,” as we are reminded that we place our confidence, our hope, and our faith in God alone. One of the most vital contributions our Convention has made over the years has been our willingness “to speak truth to power,” even when it is unpopular to do so. History is calling upon us to do again in this time what our forefathers and foremothers did in their time—stand up with courage and be the voice for the voiceless in the fight for justice in all three branches of government, including the Houses of Congress, the Supreme Court and the White House! In this 56th year we will also be planning to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Poor People’s Campaign, which will take place in 2018. It is only fitting that the Convention of Martin Luther King Jr., continue the struggle to lift the most vulnerable people in our society. Through this session’s teaching, preaching, challenges, and fellowship, you will be blessed. Thank you for being here in Houston, and THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO PROGRESSIVE!!
