Leisurely lounging on the sofa one recent Sunday afternoon my wife entered the space and I faintly heard her ask, “are you sleep?” Arousing from my 40 winks -now minus a few - I incoherently and unintelligibly mumbled something to the effect of “No, whatz up, I’m woke”.

Linguistically and socially the concept of “wokeness” has exploded within the culture –  and there is virtually no venue where the term is not i...

Motherhood

Being a Mom for over 35 years has been quite rewarding. I mean it hasn’t always been easy but my good days certainly have outweighed the bad. Having five kids is a challenge because you have different personalities. One likes this, one likes that, but you make it work. 

When I had my first child my sister gave me a book written by a gentleman by the name of Dr. Spock. I appreciated it but I never read it. I just believed that motherhood...

When I survey the Wondrous Cross, the emblem of suffering and shame.

How I love that old, rugged cross, it serves as a constant reminder of Jesus’

Great Love and Compassion, Sacrifice and Suffering!

 When I think about that old, rugged cross, where the dearest and best,

for a world of lost sinners was slain; I am deeply hurt and humbled.  I cannot stand before the cross,

I must kneel in It...

Can You Imagine the Color of Prayers?

 

            See what I see in the image of floating, illuminating expressions of prayers… 

hovering over the atmosphere, soaring into the heavenly doors.  

Colors of Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Purple, Brown and Black, 

Blending mixtures of brightness surround the Son as it Warms your heart.  

The softness ...

So-called holy wars are no more sacred, honorable, or divine than jihads or any other calamitous, self righteous military enerprise.

"Arguably we can talk about how the combination of Christianity and white supremacy goes to the American founding, with early folks like Puritans showing up and claiming they’re the nation upon a hill and that this is now their land and they have dominion over it." ...

Advent Season

As I thought about the many things I could say about the advent season, I recalled a movie I recently watched, "Collateral Beauty," and suddenly, I had an epiphany. Yes, that is genuinely what the advent season is all about, the collateral beauty of God's greatest gift to humanity, Jesus. “Collateral Beauty” – there is beauty and love in everything.

That's who Jesus is, "Collateral Beauty" given to ...

 It was so ironic that on the very same morning, I heard a reporter on a national t.v. network say, “I have never heard of ADVENT, and he was totally oblivious to why it was celebrated“ !! That very same evening, I was given this assignment by my Pastor, Reverend Johnny Golden Sr. of The New Unity Baptist Church to write my thoughts about the Advent Season which began this year Sunday November 29,2020 -Thursday December 24 , 2020.
