The esteemed Minister Lawrance Lee Evans, of the First Community Interfaith Institute Inc., joined the ancestors on Sept. 9 after a brief illness.
A Truly great man and leader in the Rochester community, Minister Evans created Doology, the discipline practiced at the only teaching church/ spiritual and cultural organization in Rochester, NY, known as First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. Minister Evans served as the National Minister of First Community Interfaith Institute Inc. and he came up with the idea of Doology as a teenager.
He established the Institute in 1970. Doology teaches that positive action in your community or organization is valued more than just complaining. “Heaven received a community giant today,” read a statement from Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren. “He was a man of great faith and perseverance. Dr. Doology! I will miss your words of encouragement, smiling face and great big hugs.
You can learn to know the character of person by the love their children bestow upon them and this man’s children loved him with every breath in their body.
His Homegoing services were held at Aenon Baptist Church Friday, September 14 at 11 a.m. Rest In Peace Minister Evans!”
