At the beginning of the sermon, Randolph greets everyone for joining her for the day. She blesses each member of the congregation while she gives thanks to the Lord for allowing everyone to be there and praying for the ones who could not come. “… Lord God, whatever the situation is that they may be experiencing. For those who are with us and those who have the desire to be with us. Lord God have your way in their lives and at their point in need, minister to them wherever they may be…” Randolph said.
