“Something's bound to happen when you pray.”

That was the theme of the annual Greensburg-Jeannette NAACP Prayer Breakfast, held March 10 at the Bishop Connare Center in Unity.

Honorees at the event were a venerable group of branch members, ages 80 to 95.

Guest speaker was Pastor Luann Johnson of Shiloh Ministries Outreach Center in Jeannette. The pastor was accompanied by her church's praise team.

Among organizers were branch president Ruth Tolbert and religious affairs chairperson Adrienne Russell.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
