Bishop Ward Reflects

April 15, 2020

Resurrection Day has passed. Another Holy Week has left us in a year that we will remember the rest of our lives. My prayer for all of us who have awakened during this pandemic season is that we will awaken to a better Christ-Centered treatment of each other when this is over. My only fear is that if we do not realize our need for each other and the significance of how we should be more concerned with spiritual relationships rather than money, degrees and spotlight moments in time that Adonai will send us into a plight, which we will never recover. He has done it before and He can do it again.
 

This pandemic has brought many to their knees and the realization that we ALL need to be a God -Centered people. At least we have realized the need for prayer. PLEASE...when this is over let us not go back to our old ways when once again Jehovah has heard our prayers, heard from heaven and healed the land. Let us strive to be a blessing to the deprived, the inequitable, the despaired, the uneducated and the imprisoned. Did not Jesus declare if we neglect these that He will declare that He never knew us? If we truly celebrated Resurrection Sunday then the Message of Christ must continue to prevail to elected officials, doctors, lawyers, the elite, the suburbanites and the inaccessible.
 

One thing COVID-19 has taught me and that is that it does not discriminate. It has taken people from all walks of life all over the world. Sounds like the flood in the time of Noah.  Many will read this and ignore it. This is a wakeup call. If Yahweh did not have your attention before...He should have it now!! BE BLESSED...BE PRAYERFUL...AND BE FAITHFUL!!

Coalition of Civil Rights Organizations Statement on Chronology Of Communications

Re: Status of Ohio’s Primary Election Cleveland, Ohio

The Greater Cleveland NAACP, Urban League of Greater Cleveland (ULGC), its’ Guild and the Greater Cleveland Chapter of National Action Network (NANGCC) released the following statement in clarification of recent communications on the status of Ohio’s

 

Primary Election:

Due to the order of communications that have been released involving our organizations within the last few days, we are providing a chronological context for clarification.

 

March 17th, we released a joint statement from the coalition making our position clear about expectations moving forward. We expressed concern over the confusion created by the timing and way the postponement was handled. Below is an excerpt from the March 17th release:

 

As civil rights leaders, we believe that equal, fair and safe access to the ballot is a right that should be available to all citizens and we call on all the elected officials in Ohio to work together to ensure all votes that have been cast are counted and that all registered voters swiftly have an opportunity to vote in the primary election in Ohio. Absentee voting is a great way to ensure Ohioans remain safe as we navigate COVID-19 but, we object to any resolution that would deny voters their right to vote in person. Our ancestors sacrificed too much to gain access to the physical ballot box and to ever have that taken away would be a miscarriage of justice.

 

These uncharted waters that, we are in call for us to be more vigilant than ever before. It is in this spirit that we advocate for clear and consistent directions about this primary be delivered to all Ohioans in a timely manner. Any additional confusion created from our elected officials can cause mistrust in government and in the system of elections.

We stand ready to fight on behalf of all Ohioans to ensure they can exercise their franchise.

 

Please note that going forward, you will only receive notifications issued directly by the Coalition indicated above. We will continue to communicate with and provide feedback to all involved parties as resolutions are sought.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Alzheimer’s: What family caregivers need to know

 

While the COVID-19 pandemic threatens the health of millions in this country and around the world, the novel coronavirus presents unique challenges for more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers.
 

Most notably, public health strategies aimed at limiting contact with others is nearly impossible for people living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, who rely on family caregivers and others to live their daily lives. This reality affects these individuals across all settings, including home, adult day services, residential and assisted living facilities and nursing homes.
 

To help family caregivers navigate the current complex and quickly changing environment, the Alzheimer’s Association is offering additional guidance to families, including:
Help people living with Alzheimer’s practice safe hygiene. People with Alzheimer’s and other dementia may forget to wash their hands or follow other precautions to ensure safe hygiene. Caregivers are encouraged to be extra vigilant in helping individuals practice safe hygiene.

 

Anticipate and prepare that current care and support options may change. As public health containment strategies for COVID-19 escalate during the next several weeks, it is important for families to anticipate that less help and support may be available. For example, many adult day care programs are shutting down during the crisis and home health services may also become less available. It’s important for families to anticipate these changes and make plans for filling gaps in caregiving.
 

Ask residential care facilities about its communication policies. In order to protect the health of their residents, many facilities are restricting access to outside visitors, so it’s important to ask how you can get updates on your family member’s health and how you can communicate with loved ones during the current crisis. Ask to see if phone calls, including video calls, will be offered and how best to coordinate.
 

Now more than ever the Alzheimer's Association is here for you! The Alzheimer's Association's free 24/7 Helpline at 800.272.3900 never closes. Speak with a trained specialist about any Alzheimer's concern or issue.
