“It Was A Great Thing”
Rev. F.C. Barnes & the Red Budd Combined Choir
From the CD, “LIVE” featuring “Rough Side of the Mountain” (1994)
Bishop F.C. Barnes transitioned in the early hours of yesterday morning at the age of 82 (see the related post here), but not before leaving a rich legacy to be remembered for years to come.
Bishop Barnes founded Red Budd Holy Church in Rocky Mount in 1959. This week’s pick, “It Was A Great Thing,” features him with the Red Budd Combined Choir.
Thank you, Bishop Barnes, for reminding us of the mercy of Jesus Christ. Yes, it was a great thing that He did for us!
