The Words of the Jenkins Family
Reverend Purnell Spicer Passes into the Spirit World
July 26, 2002
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
We learned today that our dear brother and a great man of God the Rev. Purnell Spicer passed into the Spirit World.
Rev. Spicer and his family made great and significant contributions in the area of racial reconciliation and the unity of Christianity with our True Parents.
Purnell worked tirelessly to teach and preach the word of God and in many ways opened the door for major Christian leaders to join the ACLC. Christian ministers across this nation were deeply moved by his spirit and heart. For those of us who knew him, he deeply and significantly impacted all of our lives. We are deeply saddened by this loss.
Somehow we can't help but feel it is a great offering to heaven for the sake of the current Service for Peace dispensation as well as for the sake of Christianity and America.
Let us sincerely pray for this great American that during this time his transition will be very smooth and uplifting.
We will have his Seung Hwa next week in Washington, D.C. Dr. Yang will be Honorary Chairman of the Seung Hwa and has appointed myself and David Caprara as Co-Chairmen.
Tomorrow Dr. Yang will report to Father about Purnell's life course.
Thank you for your prayers. Donations for the family can be sent to HSA-UWC at 4 W. 43rd St. N.Y., N.Y. 10036 C/O Rev. Eric Holt.
Rev. Michael Jenkins
