As a continuation of the Beloved Community Sunday School program, the planned meetings for the end of Lent have been recorded. In the videos below, Nelson McDaniel, local historian and former president of the New Bern Historical Society, of New Bern, NC, shares his vast knowledge of the Black experience in New Bern during Antebellum, Civil War, and Reconstruction eras. Click on the arrows to view the videos.
Thank you to Lydia Ash and Mary Lynn Guidage for videoing Nelson. Lydia and Mary Lynn attested to the fact they could have taped many more hours as Nelson shared his love and knowledge of history as well as his innate gift as a teacher. A few of his many books of general interest are pictured and listed below. Stay safe and well and enjoy this virtual interaction with one of our New Bern/Christ Church treasures.

Mozart for Monday
Good morning, all. I was talking with the gentleman who works at Living Well, right across from the church (they’re open, and sell all sorts of lovely groceries and healthy living stuff). He told me he wakes up with Mozart and goes to sleep with Bach. What a great idea! So for today: my favorite Mozart piano sonata. Peace. Cliff
