It’s hard to believe that next Thursday, September 24th, will mark the 10th time Representative Huggins and I have gathered the Irmo Community together in prayer!
This annual event could not be possible without our regular sponsors and the hard work of local churches and their congregations.
Each year we see many of the same people; but every year we see more and more new faces. Each year we rotate the breakfast among churches in the Irmo area and every year the pastor for the host church for the upcoming year gives the benediction. Last year, the benediction was given by the Rev. Dr. Derrick Scott of St. Paul AME Church on Kennerly Road. I visited the church in 2013 when construction on their new facility was just beginning. I’ve been back since then; but am excited that the community will now get to visit and hear from one of the relatives of the late Senator Clementa Pinckney.
Our state should never forget the Emmanuel Nine and the grace shown during those very difficult time.
