Summary

A Quest That Ignites the Heart shares the spiritual and personal journey of Deloris Seiveright, now Archbishop Dr. Deloris Devan Seiveright. Archbishop Seiveright talks about her family and the way in which she was raised in the Caribbean. This memoir traces her spiritual path to becoming an archbishop, overseeing the Shouters National Evangelical Spiritual Baptist Faith International Centre of Canada. She chronicles her personal history, from her childhood in Jamaica through the beginnings of her spiritual life to her life today as church leader. This is a one-of-a-kind journey that will inspire and encourage others to enrich their spiritual lives and to find their calling. She also reflects on her spiritual journey, from being a member of the Anglican Church of God to becoming a Spiritual Baptist. In this text she brings all of the pieces of her story together in one volume-pieces that she has shared in articles, interviews with students, and lectures that she has given across North America and the Caribbean-and, of course, to her congregation on Sunday mornings. As an archbishop, she has travelled the world, received awards for her work as a community leader, and met fascinating people. A Quest That Ignites the Heart shares her experiences from that spiritual journey.

Excerpts

A beautiful girl at birth came into a home a country home very quiet, peaceful with lots of fruits around provision. The cane field the pineapples, the garden the swing tree was awesome and amazing journey. As I travel the country roads, meet neighbours, travel to school. Church was a pivotal role in my life; family was always around, nurturing sisters and brothers. Driving the dusty country road, the sun so hot with rain drops on and off. There was always excitement to prepare for Church every Sunday. I watch Mama and Papa work hard to put food on the table. The Home grown country girl to Big city, Abuse, Love family then to Big organization, awards, accolades, recognition and my humbleness. This book will give you the knowledge of how someone has arrive from childhood to be a spiritual Archbishop a person a woman who dreams was not focus on ministry. How my life has taken a turn for a journey that I did not expect. In spite of the barriers and challenges, as I overcome and focus anyone who is able and willing will excel to do any thing they put their mind to. This journey is one of a kind and worth you knowing and hope it will enriched you life as mine is enriched by God and doing volunteer and duties beyond my calling. The question is often asked, "Why am I a Spiritual Baptist and how did I get from being and Anglican, Church of God now a Spiritual Baptist?" When I reflect on my awesome journey I am so filled with Spiritual joy. Over the years I have shared pieces of my story in articles I've written, interviews with students, lecturing across North America and the Caribbean and of course in front of my congregation on Sunday mornings. As an Archbishop, I have travelled all over the world, received awards for my work as a community leader, and met fascinating people, but there are also stones and boulders on the path. Each Chapter you read will give you a different experience, you will vision the journey and energy your part to apt you for all challenges and success in your journey. As a writer and a spiritual person who reads a lot, I put most of these ceremonies in booklet forms as I build new chapter and churches in Toronto. Also train and guide ministers with new ministry and support the cause of the community spirituality. I am devoted to the Spiritual Baptist. My devotion and message is from my heart. My spiritual journey I embrace with greatness, I wear my robes and my head wraps with pride. When I dance, I dance with God's power and greatness. I love music and so I love to dance carnally and so I love to dance spiritually. A faith that embodies all faiths, a faith that has a journey; a journey of development of peace, of love and portrays the indelible mark, the ancestors fought and left for us. Therefore, I have work to do, I will do it, I cannot stop, I will preach, heal and give direction in all that I do. Love is divine and supreme. God used the storms in my life to strengthen my relationship with Him. The journey in my daily life leaves me with peace and calmness and gratitude. My spiritual life is a path for me and no one else can walk it, only me but there is support and guiding hands through the storms. During college graduate school I was married, have great sons, great parents, great family, but I ignored the storm warnings. I collapsed emotionally. The stress of trying to do too much brought me to a breaking point. When I finally turned it all over to God, I was able to accept his unconditional love. Sometimes God allows me to us the spiritual gifts and talents to weather the storm The Spirit had a mission, yesterday, today and in the future. I have founded and established a church, the peoples church, I have compassion and empathy and I know the Spirit will direct where to build and plant the churches for the Spirit guides will show me the path. I will talk east and walk east, for sustainability for all is; income, health care, education and justice. Education that I need is the spiritual moral needs and this all people deserve, especially the youth. It was a very cold winter night, I prayed for a change in my life. I was about 48 years old, within three weeks an awesome turn came out. My career changed and one of the things I will do and must do is to tell my stories, real stories by television, radio, yes somewhat by teaching, preaching for sure, but certainly in book form. This book will enlighten you as my faith enlightens and empowers my life. Enjoy every word, it is real in my life and all my purpose as well as the future is all because God has been in the centre of my life. Thanks to my Mom and Dad who taught me very well.
