Good morning! Praise God for this wonderful day! I am greatly honored to speak to the audience of the Association of Christian Librarians. I also want to acknowledge the members of the Massachusetts Black Librarians Network who have come to support me. This presentation is so appropriate because I strive towards a commitment to Christian principles in my personal life, and my work life. In fact, my sorority, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc, a private non-profit organization committed to academic excellence and community service, is based on Christian principles. We set aside time for spiritual readings in our business meetings, and during service weekends, my sorority combines visits to a local church for a Sunday service. It is a wonderful way to share our Christian values with each other and our community. It is not just the motions that we go through that I appreciate, but the respect and support for each other.
