Where Did The Love Go?

Part of the rallying cry for many during the election season revolved around the slogan “Love Trumps Hate”. However, in the hours following both the election results and the subsequent inauguration of the now President Donald Trump, there has been little love shown by those who also clung to the former First Lady’s statement, “When […]

Time To Get Tough: Making America #1 Again

No one quite knows the originator of the statement, “If you want to hide something from Black folk, put it in a book,” but the apparent truth of it is glaringly true. It’s not just true of many African Americans but seemingly many others across the nation who were too busy either laughing at the […]

Called To Be A Servant Of All

There are two unique stories within the bible where Jesus has to deal with the subject of greatness. One takes place in Matthew chapter 18. He is approached by his disciples and asked, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” Mark chapter 9 goes into further detail to emphasize the fact that the […]

When Did Holiness Become A Dirty Word?

Lately, there has been a great stirring among many in the body of Christ in America. While the subject of sin and grace are not new topics for discussion, the resulting actions of the Church are increasingly becoming notably more muddied. This muddiness is in part a reaction by many in the faith community hoping […]

What Happens When Christians Get Soft or Dull?

Several years ago, I was taken aback by the words of a pastor who said before his congregation that Christianity is not a chump man’s religion. It wasn’t because I ever believed that it was, but because I had not until that time ever heard anyone lend voice to that notion. You have to believe […]

What If The Mail Wasn’t Meant For You?

Have you ever been the recipient of mail that was not addressed to you? I know I have. Even during this past holiday season, I found mail that wasn’t even addressed to me in my mailbox. It was actually for someone who had been the previous resident. I’ve even had some mail come that was […]

What If Trump Was Right?

When Donald Trump first announced his candidacy for president he launched out with the slogan “Make America Great Again.” To many in America, this seemed a slap in the face as they assumed that America was currently in a state of greatness. The assumption that a brash man who seemed to offend so many couldn’t […]

Are You Ready For Your 7 Mountain Mission For 2017

One of my favorite shows as a kid was the television series Mission Impossible. When Tom Cruise reintroduced Mission Impossible on the cinematic screen, the one thing I continued to live for was that famous line that said, “Your mission, should you choose to accept it…”. You always knew that something big was about to […]
