Looking Ahead to Next Year

Looking Ahead to Next Year

The year 2013 will mark the 40th commemoration of Roe V. Wade and the 50th Anniversary of the “I Have a Dream” speech. Interestingly enough we’re just now celebrating the 50th anniversary of the James Bond movie series as well. Yours truly happened to have gone to see the latest Bond movie, Skyfall, and I found it poignant and current. I also note that in many of the television programs now and things like that, we had a brief cycle…

Beware of the Subtleties of the Evil One

Beware of the Subtleties of the Evil One

Have you taken your children or grandchildren to see Wreck-It Ralph, the latest Disney movie released November 2, 2012? I haven’t seen the film but my assistant took his granddaughter to see it this past weekend. After watching the movie it almost made him swear off movies. Or at lease go see the movie ahead of time before he takes his granddaughter to see another movie. Kid’s movies should be made for kids. No innuendos, no bad language, no sexually…

Traveling and Encouraged

Traveling and Encouraged

As I have been getting out and meeting with many people since the election I am encouraged, especially by the youth. They have so many good questions and are so full of life and they will be the generation that abolishes abortion.

If We Could All Take Flight…

If We Could All Take Flight…

Okay. I can’t get the new movie FLIGHT starring Denzel Washington out of my awareness. Why? I’m beginning to wonder if the movie isn’t prophetic in a strange kind of way. As in America is headed for a big CRASH if we don’t wake up! Let’s face it. My first response to FLIGHT was valid, too much substance abuse, too much profanity, too much nudity, too many cursory glances of religion without compassion. Of course there is a whole lot…

Remembering Our Veterans

Remembering Our Veterans

Today we remember all the veterans who have served in the military and fought for the freedom we enjoy today. We pray for all those living and deceased veterans of past and current conflicts. We also remember and pray for those who have returned broken in body or spirit. Yesterday at my church, Believers’ Bible Christian Church in Atlanta, we remembered and thanked our veterans for their service. In addition to our veterans, we want to also pray for all…

Ignoring African Americans’ and women‘s voices will not win elections.

Ignoring African Americans’ and women‘s voices will not win elections.

The Republican Party did not do justice to the appeals from African Americans and women who said, “Let our voices be heard during this election.” It seems that there was very little understanding that not knowing how to talk about rape and incest in cases of abortions and not looking at the women’s viewpoints did not help and then not including the African American’s voices in the election efforts did not help win the election. The African American community reached…

Where Do We Go From Here

Where Do We Go From Here

More deeply into the word of God! While preaching one of his favorite sermons, “The Drum Major Instinct,” at Ebenezer Baptist Church, Atlanta, Georgia, on February 4, 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. offered this prayer as an expression of his growing sense of Christian duty and accountability. He was under increasing pressure because of his statements against the Vietnam War, his attacks on the capitalistic system and ethic, and his efforts on behalf of the Memphis sanitation workers and the…
