Those of us who were truly blessed by the life and ministry of Bishop Long during his tenure as Senior Pastor of his first Church, Cedar Springs Baptist Church, in Cedartown Georgia are with heavy hearts. With the Spirit of empathy we mourn. He changed the atmosphere. I remember riding with him to speaking engagements and conversing, he was light years beyond everyone else. Mind you this was in 1986. He grew the church in ONE Sunday from 60+ members over 140. So down to earth, so approachable, so in love with His God, his Family, His frat, and His Church. Rest in paradise my covenant Brother. I will continue to stand with you until we meet at Jesus feet. love and miss you.
