Rev. Edward Pinkney speaking at California State University

Below are excerpts from a speech by Rev. Edward Pinkney at California State University in February, 2018. Green Pages recently ran a cover story about Rev.

As a minister, as a teacher, as a preacher, it is imperative that we lean on the Bible and teach what is really going on. Continue reading
