On Common Ground News publishers Glenn and Valerie Morgan were honored with Light of the World Christian Tabernacle International’s “Exceptional Leaders in the Community” award on July 18 in Stockbridge.
The award presentation was part of the church’s 2014 Holy Convocation, which was held July 12 – 20. The Morgans were honored “for ongoing commitment to keeping the community informed and dedication to community empowerment.”
The newspaper, which marked its 19th anniversary this year, was established in April 1995.
Light of the World leaders, Archbishop Ruth W. Smith Holmes and Dr. Rickie Holmes, hosted the convocation. Church members say the Holy Convocation is designed for the worship of God, recalling the divine fruits and to bring repentance. Results of the Holy Convocation include bringing confession, giving participants a contrite heart and bringing a true repentance.
