Richard Allen Statue Unveiling

We have had a marvelous time in Philadelphia at the 50th Session of the General Conference. We participated in a Torch Run- an eighty mile run originating in Richard Allen's birthplace- Dover, Delaware and ending at Mother Bethel AME in Philadelphia. The theme of the run was "Finish the Fight: Let's Run For It". Runners from the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th Episcopal districts ran carrying the torch. The historic day ended with the Richard Allen Statue unveiling on the grounds of Mother Bethel!
