Love as
God loved us.

Beloved, let us love one another, because love is of God; everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God. Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love. In this way the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through him. In this is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as expiation for our sins.

We are a busy Church today. As we observe the Sixth Sunday of Easter we also observe the 64th Anniversary of the Martyrdom of Joseph Padewski and Mother’s Day.

It may seem to be a difficult challenge. We have to, as a Church, concentrate on Easter. That is our first duty, to proclaim Jesus’ salvation and the promise of His resurrection to the whole world. How do you mix that with the fact that members of the Church are sometimes called to suffer and even die to proclaim this message – something happening right now in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa. Then couple all that with honoring our Blessed Mother and our moms in a special way.

Certainly, each of these events can stand alone and with deep significance for the Christian faithful. Thankfully, our Lord has already showed us how all this is bound together: This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

Jesus told us what we should do, but as opposed to false prophets and made up gods – He walked the walk. He laid down His life for all of us voluntarily. As St. John recounts Jesus saying: “No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again; this charge I have received from my Father.”

Bishop Padewski lived his vocation and followed in Jesus’ footsteps. He returned to Poland from Albany to serve God’s people in the devastation following World War II. He did not consider his own safety or comfort, but rather followed the commandment of love and walked into the horrors of the communist takeover of Poland. He was arrested, tortured, and killed for his love of God’s people and his faithfulness to Jesus.

The Blessed Virgin is the exemplar of love for Jesus. We not only honor her as our heavenly mother, but also as our example of love and dedication to her Son, Jesus. She sacrificed her heart and life for Him. So too our mothers, the first example of love in our lives. They laid down their lives in a great act of sacrificial love.

All of these themes, all of Christianity, is joined together by love – love of God and for each other – giving all we are for the truth of love.

gentreeThe Macedonia Baptist Church of Albany is proud to host a presentation on the importance of knowing as much as possible about your family tree. The presentation will be held on Saturday, May 9th from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, at the Macedonia Baptist Church, 26 Wilson Avenue, Albany, New York.

The presenters are Alfonzo B. Owens, III; DMD, MPH and Kim Wilson-Owens, LCSW, CSAC. Dr. and Mrs. Owens have been married for over 25 years, have two adult children, and have experienced great success in their chosen professions. Dr. Owens initially developed an interest in researching the Owens family tree, and has done extensive research on line, and has spent time interviewing sources and family members in Decatur, Alabama, where the Owens family has some of its origins here in the United States.
Discovering more about the health status of our ancestors is critically important to getting a better understanding of our health status, the status of our family members, and the implications of the health of our children and future generations. This presentation will offer an opportunity to learn how the Owens started their search, what they found, and how it can help with future generations of the growing family tree, which now includes branches from their spouses.

This program is jointly sponsored by the Macedonia Baptist Church Rites of Passage: Excellence and Success program, the Program Development and Community Empowerment ministry, and the University of Albany Center for the Elimination of Minority Health Disparities. Please register for the session by contacting the Church office at (518) 489 4370, or through the Church website \We look forward to seeing you there!
