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." ...

Juanuary 1, 2021

As a result of the killing of George Floyd, an African-American male who died on May 25, 2020, while handcuffed by police officers and lying face down on a street in Minneapolis, Minnesota; it is needful for me to state my position on this senseless act of police brutality that represents continued systemic racism and injustices enacted against African-Americans and people of color in America.

 Let it be known that I go on record c...

Advent: Collateral Beauty

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 ...

THE ADVENT SEASON

 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.

As we prepare our homes and hearts for the annual day of "Thanks" - giving I recommend that each of  us pause for a moment and actually utter the words "Thank you".

"To whom are we offering this Declaration of Gratefulness?", you might ask. Well, how about starting with those in our immediate circles of life - spouses, friends, and other family members. We do 'hold certain truths', do we not, that equal beings deserve equ...

Should Christians Participate in Halloween

There's nothing new about this question, it's an old one and it has its defenders and its detractors. "Should", some ask, "Christians participate in devil worship?" After all, isn't it all about witches and goblins and hideous creatures from the dead?

Perhaps a brief look at history will give us some insight, here. Halloween, like Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve is the "evening /eve" before the Hallow? In many places ...

On a recent fall day in September 2020, President Donald J. Trump officially nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett as the replacement for  jurist, trailblazer,  and liberal icon, Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Ms. Barrett’s record suggests that she is a staunch conservative and indeed, she is on record as describing herself as being in lock step with her mentor, former, now-ceased, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia – the ...

In a world  filled with so much sound - from the hardly noticeable voice of the turtle (Song of Solomon 2:12) to the hustle-bustle of noisy city streets  to earth-shaking turbine dairy tractors, our world is filled with clamor. 

And it continues, from supersonic jets breaking the sound barrier to ear-piercing wails of protest, indeed, the hills, valleys, rocks, and rills are a-buzz.

But are these vibrations welcome sounds? Or are they simply t...

U Matter

One of the great blessings of our church is the many wonderful members and friends that the Lord has permitted us to come to know and to love.

In all of life there are few, precious few, blessings beyond friendship. Worship is the avenue in which we come to know more about God - his calming presence, and the saving grace each of us has in his son Jesus Christ. But it is in friendship that we experience intimacy and common interest....

The Poseidon Adventure

There's a storm brewing in America. A brew far more intense than one born  of wispy spirits gathered around a boiling cauldron -  and yet, absolutely no less foreboding. 

Ariel of Shakespeare's Tempest seems to have said it best in the swell of his wail when he cried out, hell is empty, and all the devils are here”!

Surely, he had to know that the Euroclydon into which he was about to plunge...
