Today, I bury Mother Senobia Searight, beloved mother of my First Assistant Presiding Bishop, Bishop George Searight, Sr. Pastor, The Abundant Life Family Worship Church, New Brunswick , New Jersey…
For over 28 years , Bishop Searight and I have been in covenant. I remember how we would talk about a wide range of things. One of the most untouchable subjects was the loss of our mothers. At the time , we couldn’t bare to think about it. Well, the day has come. Today he will Preach her funeral. , and we will celebrate her wonderful life. An amazing , godly, and virtuous woman….she now rejoices in that heavenly home!!!
There are seasons that we all must go through. Our being Pastors, does not prevent personal loss and pain. As we pray for my son in ministry, I pray for all of us . So often , we must ” Lead While We Bleed”. Be assured , when we walk through the valley and shadow of sorrow…….. We will not be alone. God Bless you all today.
With a servants heart,
Donald Hilliard, Jr. D. Min.
