As the Rev. John Richard Bryant danced down the aisle of a Towson church last night, he wore a smile that said, "Wow, look at all this." Bryant had ample reason to beam: He was entering a hall packed with singing and swaying people eager to honor his ministerial sons and daughters. Yesterday Bryant, now a bishop in Los Angeles, returned to Baltimore to honor the 20th anniversary of the Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church's Class of 1981, eight men and women who became prominent ministers.
