Genesis 9:18-23 The Sons of Noah
The sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham and Japheth (Ham was the father of Canaan.)
These were the three sons of Noah, and from them came the people who were scattered over the earth.
Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard.
When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent.
Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father’s nakedness and told his two brothers outside. But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father’s nakedness.
Their faces were turned the other way so that they would not see their father’s nakedness.
Michael A. Walrond, Jr. is the seventh Senior Pastor of the historic First Corinthian Baptist Church in Harlem, New York.
Presently, Rev. Walrond, who is also affectionately known by the congregation as Pastor Mike, serves as the leader, pastor and teacher to the “ever evolving community of visionaries & dreamers” at First Corinthian Baptist Church.
Pastor Mike’s vision for discipleship wholeness and community wellness has launched vision teams including: HEALED HIV/AIDS Ministry, Social Justice, DTV Drama, Clothing, Celebrate Life Recovery Ministries, and Business and Culinary Arts Vision Teams.
The dynamic preaching, teaching and discipleship of Pastor Mike led to the need for an additional service in 2010: Freestyle Fridays, a service that celebrates the art of improvisation and creativity.
Last December, Rev. Walrond, 41, announced to his parishioners that he will run for Rep. Charles Rangel’s congressional seat.
