Bishop Woodie W. White, former general secretary of the General Commission on Religion and Race of The United Methodist Church from 1969–1984, has written an African American History Month Devotional for Abingdon Press. It is a wonderful collection of reflections on the U.S. Postal Service’s stamps commemorating the contributions of African Americans.
Each daily reading provides a Scripture passage, an inspiring and encouraging meditation, and a prayer. These devotions increase a sense of knowledge and awareness of African American history, foster pride in that history, and strengthen personal and communal faith, hope, and commitment to a rich heritage and future.
The African American History Month Daily Devotions is perfect for church Bible study, opening meditations for meetings and events, and personal use.
Bishop White is the bishop-in-residence at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology in Atlanta. He was elected bishop in 1984.
