Carole returns to the United Nations in New York City where the Women's Missionary Society (WMS) of the African Methodist Episcopal Church hold their annual Leadership Conference.
The WMS is a recognized NGO (Non-governmental organization) of the UN, and has members and member churches throughout the United States, Africa, Central and South America and The United Kingdom. India recently joined the AME ranks, with 42 new churches formed in the past five years.
Carole is speaking at the conference for a second time, and will interview the WMS-NGO representatives, Lorraine Dickerson and Carolyn Scavella.
Carole also provides a final commentary for the upcoming October 27th Multicultural Conference to be held at the University of Massachusetts Boston campus.
A non-governmental organization (NGO) is a legally constituted organisation created by natural or legal persons that operates independently from any government. The term originated from the United Nations (UN), and is normally used to refer to organizations that do not form part of the government and are not conventional for-profit business. In the cases in which NGOs are funded totally or partially by governments, the NGO maintains its non-governmental status by excluding government representatives from membership in the organization (Source: Wikipedia)
The African Methodist Episcopal Church has a unique and glorious history. It was unique in that it is the first major religious denomination in the Western World that had its origin over sociological and theological beliefs and differences. It rejected the negative theological interpretations which rendered persons of African descent second class citizens. Theirs was a theological declaration that God is God all the time and for every body. The church was born in protest against slavery - against dehumanization of African people, brought to the American continent as labor.
The word African means that the church was organized by people of African descent and heritage. It does not mean that the church was founded in Africa, or that it was for persons of African descent only.
The church's roots are of the family of Methodist churches. Methodism provides an orderly system of rules and regulations and places emphasis on a plain and simple gospel.
Episcopal refers to the form of government under which the church operates. The chief executive and administrative officers of the African Methodist Episcopal denomination are the Bishops of the church. (Source: Official AME Website)
