COGIC PRESIDING BISHOP CHARLES E. BLAKE, SR. CALLS FOR PEACE IN THE WAKE OF MICHAEL BROWN SHOOTING
St. Louis, Missouri (August 12, 2014) The Church of God in Christ (COGIC) joins the family of Michael Brown in asking for calm and peace in the aftermath of the shooting and killing of their son. Eighteen year old Brown, known as a “gentle giant,” was only days away from beginning his college studies.
It is imperative that the community resist the temptation to retaliate by looting and rioting in our own neighborhoods. Instead, we must allow the St. Louis County Police Department and the FBI’s investigations, regarding the senseless death of this young African American male to go forward.
The destruction of property in Ferguson, Missouri only hurts our communities and places more lives at risk. Furthermore, this riotous behavior takes away attention and resources from these extremely critical investigations.
I ask that we all remain patient and wait for the results of the investigations. During the next few days, please avoid settings that may put you at risks in any way.
Most importantly, please remember to pray for Michael’s family, especially his parents, Michael Brown, Sr. and Lesley McSpadden, as they prepare to lay their son to rest.

Presiding Bishop Charles E. Blake, Sr. Statement
I want to commend Chairman Linwood Dillard for managing the affairs of the AIM 2014 Convention excellently. I want to personally say thank you to him, each of the department leaders and the entire AIM staff. You have done a great job in Kansas City.
Also, congratulations for being a part of the Baltimore, Maryland Business Journal list of conventions with the highest economic impact for 2013 ranking in the Top 15.
I recently made and acted upon very unwise decisions regarding my diet over a period of two days. This resulted in some painful digestive issues, which have now been resolved. There are no continuing major problems that remain. The doctors expect a full recovery and there are no outstanding issues about which they are concerned.
I am allowing my digestive system to fully recover. I am 100% better and strongly wish to be in Kansas City at AIM, but my family and doctors have insisted that I take a few more days, to replenish my body and get all the nutrients back in my system.
Please know that I am well, in good health and experiencing nothing more than what I have stated.
Lady Mae and I love you and the AIM family and will see you soon, God Bless You!
Please be sure to Save the Date for this momentous event!
