Richmond & Gayton, Virginia

This is my buddy Ricky. He's one of the most stand-up guys I know. His 'yes' is 'yes,' his 'no' is 'no.' He's fun to be with. He will do something for you just because he knows you will enjoy it, or need it. He's also one of the best examples of a transformed life I know. His early years were not easy and he made some mistakes. But through discipline and his faith in God, Ricky turned all that around. Yesterday he stood before a judge and had all his rights as a citizen of the United States restored.

Bobbye says goodbye to friends after 17 years in Richmond. It's time for retirement and she is moving on. She will be missed.

Cambridge Church

It is a service for the generations at Cambridge church. Members from toddles to seniors attend. The youth of the church feed everyone a meal. Then the young adult worship team leads with music that is rhythmic and loud ...

... some of the elders merely tolerate it, but the youngest enjoy it.

... Win Davis — pastor for youth and young adults — set the tone in both for fashion and purpose ...

... the children once again sing. Jenine, with microphone, and Lilana, to her right, reprise their solos while some of the children begin snapping fingers to the beat ...

... Jamal — a sophomore at Virginia Commonwealth University — shares devotional thoughts based on songs sung this evening ...

... after which the generations form a circle around the perimeter of the sanctuary and end the evening with one more song.
