Maybe the community can liven things up.

A reminder: Dr. Jeremiah Wright, President Obama's former pastor, will be preaching Sunday at Little Rock's New Millennium Church, a Baptist congregation pastored by rising Judge Wendell Griffen.

CHURCH NEWS RELEASE

New Millennium Church, which worships and meets on the campus of Lakeshore Drive Baptist Church at 21 Lakeshore Drive in Little Rock, will conclude a month-long focus on the relationship between faith and community involvement with worship on August 29 featuring a sermon by Rev. Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr., during the 9 a.m. worship service. Rev. Wright became Pastor Emeritus of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Illinois at the end of May 2008 and was Senior Pastor of that congregation for 36 years.
