The East Bay Lenten Caravan presents the 3rd Annual Faith in Action Conference “Lifelines to Healing’’ Saturday April 30th, at St. Paul AME Church 2024 Ashby Ave, Berkeley, featuring Dr. Joseph Marshall, radio Icon for “Street Soldiers’’.
The Faith in Action conference emanated from the East Bay Lenten Caravan (EBLC). Its mission is for churches to unite to improve the health of their respective communities.  Rev. Dr. George C.L. Cummings, co-founder of EBL said, “Our vision is to get all pastor’s that are deeply concerned about the health and well being of their communities and neighborhoods to speak up and develop a long term plan of action of economic independence, training programs for our youth on violence prevention, and being the moral voice hope, faith and love.”
Dr. Cummings said, “The EBLC is a growing fellowship of 8 churches coming together during Lenten season to Praise the Lord. It is paramount that we understand the need to be partners in the common struggle to enhance the spiritual, physical, emotional, economic, and political health of our community.” He announced that the conference attendance is free with a lunch provided from 9:00 a.m.-4:00p.m. For information call 510 531-5411.
