In the Pan African Orthodox Christian Church, we celebrate our trans-generational legacy of struggle, faith, vision, and leadership. A legacy is something transmitted or received from an ancestor or predecessor the church ripple from the past. A successful legacy yields fruit in the form of institutions that carry the work and vision forward.
The Jaramogi Abebe Legacy continues to ripple outward like a pebble dropped in a lake, influencing things far beyond its original place and time. Each generation touched by this ripple is given the opportunity to give it even greater expression in their own time. If each successive generation does their part, the ripple builds into a tidal wave that transforms the landscape. Today, we are forced by historical circumstance to accept collective self-reliance and self-determination as our only hope for an acceptable future. We must set an example that enlightens Black people that our legacy provides the answer. We can’t wait to join you again next year.
