    CBF President's Message (CBF Sunday) - June 27, 2021

    CBF Sunday 2021

     

    My Beloved Caribbean People,
    What a joy it is for me to celebrate this CBF Sunday with you all, for the first time, as President. As you already know every year we are accustomed to show our solidarity through this annual letter. Months ago, we had in mind to celebrate our 50th anniversary, but once again life is teaching us that we propose but God is the one who decides everything. We know that the time will come, where we will be able to physically, meet again.
    We extend our thoughts to those who have suffered loss, let’s remember them in our prayers.
    These last months have been very uncertain for us all and for the entire world. We have had to put up different strategies and plans in order to continue the work of the Lord. We are aware that things are not easy for some of our Islands namely Trinidad and Tobago with this high rate of death due to COVID 19. Not forgetting St Vincent and the Grenadines who have had to deal both with the pandemic and the volcano’s eruption. Let us also remember San Andres and Providence Islands still reeling from Hurricanes Eta and Iota in 2019.
    We are all aware that CCP, due this crisis, has had to face financial difficulties, for this reason we have put in place a task force to help us find means and solutions to ensure its future.
    We should not allow this pandemic to lead us into questioning our faith, neither draw us away from our fundamental teachings, but instead use this opportunity to get closer to God, intimately and ask Him to lead us through this valley of the shadow of death.
    As we set this day Sunday June 27th 2021, to recognize our unity through CBF, which is a stepping stone for the Baptist churches throughout the region, we will take time to applaud this union for its implication on the field:
    o In the Caribbean churches
    o In the Baptist World Alliance
    o In the Caribbean Islands

    My Beloved Caribbean People,

    What a joy it is for me to celebrate this CBF Sunday with you all, for the first time, as President. As you already know every year we are accustomed to show our solidarity through this annual letter. Months ago, we had in mind to celebrate our 50th anniversary, but once again life is teaching us that we propose but God is the one who decides everything. We know that the time will come, where we will be able to physically, meet again.

    We extend our thoughts to those who have suffered loss, let’s remember them in our prayers.

    These last months have been very uncertain for us all and for the entire world. We have had to put up different strategies and plans in order to continue the work of the Lord. We are aware that things are not easy for some of our Islands namely Trinidad and Tobago with this high rate of death due to COVID 19. Not forgetting St Vincent and the Grenadines who have had to deal both with the pandemic and the volcano’s eruption. Let us also remember San Andres and Providence Islands still reeling from Hurricanes Eta and Iota in 2019.

    We are all aware that CCP, due this crisis, has had to face financial difficulties, for this reason we have put in place a task force to help us find means and solutions to ensure its future.

    We should not allow this pandemic to lead us into questioning our faith, neither draw us away from our fundamental teachings, but instead use this opportunity to get closer to God, intimately and ask Him to lead us through this valley of the shadow of death.

    As we set this day Sunday June 27th 2021, to recognize our unity through CBF, which is a stepping stone for the Baptist churches throughout the region, we will take time to applaud this union for its implication on the field:

    In the Caribbean churches

    In the Baptist World Alliance

    In the Caribbean Islands 

    The new officers have taken function with a great challenge, just like the Israelites who had to take over Jericho which was their biggest challenge, which would lead them to their victory over Jericho and the other nations.

    Jeremiah12:5 “If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, in which you trusted, they wearied you, then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?

    CBF needs your prayers, your financial contribution, your support, knowing that many of you have had financial difficulties. Without you CBF would not live, that’s why we urge you to remain faithful in your giving.

    Dear family, I am reminding you that you are not alone, we are not alone. And I salute the CBF member bodies who are giving support one to another. For as it is written in 1 Corinthians 12:12-27, we are One Body with Many Members, let’s continue to work together in one Love and in one direction for the advancement of the Kingdom of God our Father.

    Shalom! Grace and peace be with you.


    Rev. Dominique Dick

    President (CBF)
