Profile of a Wednesday Night Worshipper
June 19, 2015 at 7:36am
 

By Abena J. Neal

Since I woke up this morning in tears after reading the headlines that Dylan decided to start a race war I couldn’t be silent or simply hurl angry words in response. I felt there needed to write a description of who was killed last Wednesday.  There has to be a record of what has happened and to whom for those who may not know. Wednesday, June 17, 2015 is a day of mourning for women all over the world. Specifically black women but every woman is impacted when the most faithful are slaughtered. Murdering six women serving in any community akin to crushing a vertebra in the spine of that community.

I grew up in church so I have first hand knowledge about the level and effort a Wednesday night church attendee exerts, I will not discuss the religious aspect because I believe that each person has the right to choose and worship any religion with complete sovereignty as long as they are kind to others and protect those who are vulnerable. It doesn’t matter if they are Christians, Muslims, Jewish or if they practice religions native to their culture like Yoruba, and other traditional religions involving ancestor worship.


Profile of a Wednesday Night Worshipper


·     Typically they are employed – They rush to Wednesday night service to rejuvenate after a week of being overworked and underpaid. Black women are the least paid statistically according to the U.S. Department of Labor statistics

·     When our Sabrina Fulton’s and Lesley McSpadden’s children are murdered these are the women who literally hold up their lifeless bodies to help them get through the services, interviews, and ultimately help them through the media’s attempt to blame them for the murders of their children

·     Wednesday night worshippers are the ones pastors typically call when an elder needs to be visited

·     They gather together and pray until their bodies are covered in sweat and tears for the safety of our children and for peace and prosperity throughout the land

·     They are usually active in other areas of the church like the choir, they serve as deaconesses, ushers, and provide childcare services for young mothers

·     They faithfully study their bibles and most of the time when they can’t resolve the discrepancies contained they agree that they will understand it better by and by and proceed in love

·     They will talk about you when you dress like a floozy and hold your hand when your marriage is in trouble.

·     When your mother dies they cook the food for the repast and offer to be a surrogate mother in your time of need.

No they are not perfect, but biblical scripture teaches that God made people in his image. Cynthia Hurd, 54; Susie Jackson, 87; Ethel Lance,70; Rev. DePayne Middleton-Doctor, 49; Hon. Rev. Clementa Pinckney, 41; TywanzaSanders, 26; Rev. Daniel Simmons Sr., 74; Rev. Sharonda Singleton, 45; Myra Thompson, 59. Say their names and you have said the name of God.
