In continuing honor of Black History month, Rev. Michael Pigg spoke at Brewton-Parker’s chapel service on Tuesday, Feb. 12. He spoke on endurance and based his message off of Romans 5:1-5 while focusing on the last two verses that speak about perseverance. “Too many people have given up before they achieved strong character,” Pigg said, before beginning to speak on endurance, “Nobody in history has achieved anything without having to dig a little deeper.”

In a pivotal moment of his sermon, Pigg began listing the things that the Apostle Paul has been through for Christ, including being shipwrecked, beaten to death, and imprisoned. “Endurance,” Pigg shouted, “is a victory song that Paul is singing.” He also said that, “God will not allow bad things to happen to you unless you can handle it. He’s given us endurance to get through the harshest setbacks that come our way.”

The BPC Gospel Choir returned to provide music for the chapel. This was the fourth of fourteen chapels for spring semester.
