SENIORS AGAINST A FEARFUL ENVIRONMENT
"Seniors Against a Fearful Environment (SAFE), a nonprofit corporation, was begun by the Black Panther Party at the request of a group of senior citizens for the purpose of preventing muggings and attacks upon the elderly, particularlywhen they go out to cash their meager social security or pension checks. Prior to approaching the Black Panther Party, the seniors had gone to the Oakland Police Department to request protection. There the seniors were told, to their dismay and outrage, that they "should walk close to the curb" in the future. Mrs. Van Frank, founder of the East Bay Legislative Council of Senior Citizens and the state of California's Outstanding Senior Citizen for 1971, commenting on the dangers experienced by the senior citi zens, has remarked: "The fear engendered among us old people by these mug gings almost makes us prisoners in our own homes."
A section of a recent funding proposal for the SAFE Program substantiates these claims. A comparative crime study was done over a period of six weeks (August 21 to October 1, 1972) and details conclusively that the age of the victim does bear a de nite relationship to the type ofo ense committed. Ofthe com bined total of 249 victims of strong-arm robbery and purse-snatching, 48 per cent ofthe victims (118) were overthe age of y. During this same period, only 13 percent of complainants in armed robbery cases fell into the senior citizen category. The conclusion, then, is that an elderly person is more likely to be physically attacked, whereas the younger, more agile person, who is more able to a defend his- or herself, will more likely be the victim of an armed assault. The fact has also been established that 33 percent of all crimes committed in the city of Oakland are committed against senior citizens."
WINGS OF THE SPIRIT hosted by Rev. Pat Randall
Reverend Kenneth M. Smith, Jr., founder and pastor of King and Savior Ministries, is a committed servant of God. In 2012, having been filled with a strong desire to reach the lost, King and Savior Ministries was birthed in his home by him and his wife, Evangelist Sabrina Smith. There is an anointing upon their ministry that reveals God’s desire for those who love Him to walk in victory. His love of God and dependence upon the Holy Spirit are evident in his ministering as he exhorts and encourages people to victorious living through Jesus Christ.
Through dedication and commitment to promoting growth in God’s people, Pastor and Evangelist Smith believe in the five-fold ministry, "And He gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some pastors and teachers"(Ephesians 4:11). They are committed to empowering God’s people through ordinations; preparing to send them forth as ministers to spread the Gospel. Their ultimate vision is to promote unity in the Body of Christ, develop leaders, challenge, motivate and instruct people of all backgrounds to reach their maximum potential in Christ. Ephesians 4:12-13 tells us that the purpose of the five-fold ministry is, "for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ."
