I was driving home one Sunday from Trinity of Gentilly, where I was serving. I was on Napolean headed toward the river and had just passed Pascale Manales when I saw Covenant Presbyterian Church at the corner of St. Charles Ave. I then had a vision of younger families in the Uptown and Garden District area streaming into that church singing God’s praises. It was so powerful that I had to pull over by the old K&B there and stop the car. The following week, I made an appointment to speak with the DS and then the pastor of Rayne. Little did I know the elderly members of Covenant Presbyterian were discussing selling the church and relocating to Metairie. The DS didn’t respond to my vision by acting on it, reminding me that God’s people don’t always say yes to God. Today, there is the powerful ministry of Watson Memorial filling that church and transforming lives.
