Flock Is Now a Fight Team in Some Ministries
By R. M. SCHNEIDERMAN
MEMPHIS – In the back room of a theater on Beale Street, John Renken, 37, a pastor, recently led a group of young men in prayer.
“Father, we thank you for tonight,” he said. “We pray that we will be a representation of you.”
An hour later, a member of his flock who had bowed his head was now unleashing a torrent of blows on an opponent, and Mr. Renken was offering guidance that was not exactly prayerful.
