Continuing a legacy

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Congratulations to the 2011 graduates of the J. Alfred Cage (JAC) Bible Institute.

The JAC was founded by Bishop S.Y. Younger of Lynchburg, Virginia.  The Institute is named for the late J. Alfred Cage, who was pastor of Eternal Hope Worship Church in Syracuse.

The 2011 commencement ceremony took place at the Double Tree Hotel in East Syracuse and included members of Eternal Hope Worship Church and the Ramp Church International. The commencement speaker was Bishop Aaron Sneed of Bridgeport, CT.

JJ Hairston and Youthful Praise brought energy and ebullience to the J. Alfred Cage Stage on Sunday evening.  Despite a delayed arrival, they closed out this year’s Gospel Weekend, and took the crowd to church.

Spirit of Excellence

J. Alfred Cage

 “Excellence reflex is a natural reaction to fix something that isn’t right, or to improve something that could be better. The excellence reflex is rooted in instinct and upbringing, and then constantly honed through awareness, caring and practice.”  Danny Meyer

 I am saddened by the untimely passing today of J. Alfred Cage, pastor, teacher, father, brother, uncle, grandfather and musician. Pastor Cage was a strong supporter of SIF since I met him in about 2004. Part of his legacy was reminding us all to live full and leave empty.

He will be missed.
