EDITORIAL: Pastor Flakes retires from Fourth Street Missionary Baptist Church

EDITORIAL:  Sunday, I attended the last official sermon of Pastor Flakes at Fourth Street Baptist Church.

Pastor Flakes is retiring and has passed the reins to his son, Johnnie Flakes III. It was a fine celebration of Pastor Flakes journey through life and we will all miss him dearly.

I have worked personally with Pastor Flakes for many years as co-chair of One Columbus and other organizations dedicated to creating unity in our diverse community.

For a lifetime, Pastor Flakes has been involved with race relations in our community and it is because of his efforts that race relations have progressed and it is because of him that we truly have a chance to become One Columbus.

Pastor Flakes we salute you and all you mean to your church family and your community family.

We are all blessed to have you in our community and our personal lives and we wish you peace and love in your role...Know that you have made a positive difference in so many lives.
