Leader Thanks All for Voting for Us – and Cites Lessons Learned
Metropolitan A.M.E. Church, the National Cathedral of the A.M.E. denomination whose land-site is the oldest continuously Black-owned parcel of land in the Nation’s Capitol, won a $90,000 grant to restore the stained glass windows on the primary façade. in the recent competition sponsored by American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The church was among 14 historic places in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia that will receive grants as part of Partners in Preservation’s $1 million commitment to preservation efforts in the area.
Metropolitan was lauded as “symbolic of the sustained strength of a people and their belief in the equality of all people – the first independent Black religious body in the US – from 1816 to 1896.
Trustee Gwendolyn Kimbrough, who spearheaded Metropolitan’s effort, said: “We were really blessed by the $90,000. We appreciate that kind of commitment from those who did vote”
“However,” she added: ”the lesson for AME ‘s is that we have to become a real connectional church whereby we can reach out and touch each other quickly. We may have millions of people but we have no vehicle for connecting with each other and focusing that power in any one direction.
“In order to do that we have to come into this millennium –that’s the social media platforms and embrace it so that we can sustain ourselves as a strong entity. That means we have to open up to young people for therein lies the expertise and our future.”
