"It was the custom in the State of Maryland to require the free colored people to have what were called free papers. These instruments they were required to renew very often, and by charging a fee for this writing, considerable sums from time to time were collected by the State. In these papers the name, age, color, height, and form of the freeman were described, together with any scars or other marks upon his person which could assist in his identification. This device in some measure defeated itself-since more than one man could be found to answer the same general description. Hence many slaves could escape by personating the owner of one set of papers; and this was often done as follows: A slave, nearly or sufficiently answering the description set forth in the papers, would borrow or hire them them till by means of them he could escape to a free State, and then, by mail or otherwise, would return them to the owner. The operation was a hazardous one for the lender as well as for the borrower. A failure on the part of the fugitive to send back the papers would imperil his benefactor, and the discovery of the papers in possession of the wrong man would imperil both the fugitive and his friend."

Clinical Psychologist and Author Dr. E. Douglass Brown is our special guest speaker with his topic - Addictions and Relationships. This is his discussion summary statement: A person’s movement, so to speak towards any goal occurs in the framework of relationships. You cannot give your fullest to two competing relationships. The most important relationship is the one you have with the Creator. A person’s addiction, craving for, or preoccupation with anyone or anything is a recipe for disaster, be it sudden or delayed. Your True Self cannot serve two masters. It takes two in order to form a relationship. A human addiction is comprised of two elements - an ego and what the ego craves or insists on trying to get or achieve.

*** Eagles Life started out as an outreach to the masses 16 years ago this December 2014. Founders and Pastors are Bishop Eugene and Apostle Earnestine Cooper. The ministry theme is Education About God Leads Everyone to Salvation. I am a firm believer that people that have not fully committed to the Lord have no knowlege of Him and that is due to lack of Biblical study and God fellowship. We are word oriented five fold ministry under the Prophetic move of the Holy Spririt with the Apostolic Glean of the Set Apostle in the house with signs and wonders following the word of the Living God.
The word of God is sharp and powerful and if you can take it you will be able to make it. With membership over the 200 mark seeking souls to the kingdom is a full time job in the ministry in outreach to the community. We have a staff of ministry prayer team breaking down walls and tearing down barriers in prayer for all people everywhere. With our YPSC Young People Serving Christ program and our many other share and care and recently 360 Degrees.
We come together to Celebrate Christ and each other as a family in Christ this is God's work and we are pleased to be a part of it in Jesus name.
