Sheriff Says If Black Lives Mattered They’d Protest at Abortion Clinics?!!

Image
Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke recently tweeted about the recent protests that some in the Black Community has sparked after the police related deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.


The Sheriff, who has been on several FOX NEWS SHOWS and others sent out a implying that if Black lives mattered the protesters would be outside abortion clinics because of the high numbers of black babies killed by abortion. Do you agree? Nope, don't agree, but I do agree with the comment below.

Facebook: Ironically, we don't own any abortion clinics, but they build them in the black neighborhoods. I often wonder why???? Where the racist white cop who kills the child that was not aborted father. Then the government pays for that same child who was not aborted, to spend the rest of his life in a prison that have been specially designed for him.  We've always known that our lives matter, we are just trying to drive that sentiment, home for you and your supporters.

Church Announcement: Church Catch Phrase For 2015!

Image
I strongly believed that if African Americans are going to celebrate a holiday New Year should be it. Historically on Dec. 31, most black congregations, use that particular service as the start of their devotion service for the year ahead. 

I also think New Year more important for us as a people than the 4th of July or any other holiday. Our history teaches that on December 31,1862 the black community would gather in churches and private homes all across the nation, anxiously awaiting news that the Emancipation Proclamation actually had become law. So, at the stroke of midnight January 1, all slaves in the Confederate States were declared legally free. 

So, when the news was received, there were prayers, shouts, and songs of joy as people fell to their knees and thanked God. Black folks have gathered in churches annually on New Year's Eve ever since way back then, praising God for bringing us safely through another year. I have compounded below a number of churches with their slog…

Church Announcement: Windowless Megachurches Are Killing The Stained Glass Industry!

Image
Lord have mercy, stained glass makers are looking for new ways to market their skills these days. According to a new report in the Wall Street Journal looking at the secularization of the industry. Fewer and fewer churches are investing in stained glass windows — or windows at all — and membership in glass trade organisations is dwindling. In a way, it makes sense: Stained glass was originally a way to communicate biblical narratives to worshippers who couldn't read.

Congrats to Anthony Hamilton on his latest album release "Home For The Holidays."  I accidently discovered the album when putting together my annual holiday mix. Pretty good album.

‎Question Of The Day‬: What Are The Beatitudes?

Image
Like I mention on this blog many times before, I'm a big ole fan of Got Question Ministries. Back in my growing up days, we didn't call these 8 blessings mentions at the sermon on the mount, as "THE   BEATITUDES" instead we referred to them as "THE BEAUTIFUL ATTUIDE." The Beatitudes teach transformation of our inner selves and promises salvation in heaven. The beatitudes also offer peace for life's struggles. Remember, the opposite of a beatitude is misery. We have been blessed too much and too often to live for anything of this world. Whatever our struggles might be, know that we have a promise of eternal reward! Always remember the cross! BECAUSE OF CALVARY! PRAISE GOD.

THE EIGHT BEATITUDES OF JESUS  Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.  Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they…

Thank You Chris Rock For Keeping It Real: I Can Think Of 3 Reasons Why The NYPD Turned Their Backs On Mayor DeBlasio!

Image
Comedian Chris Rock slightly ruffled a few feathers yesterday when he tweeted the above pic, along with the following caption:
 I can think of 3 reasons why the #NYPD turned their backs on mayor #DeBlasio.   Even though the media wants us to think that the mayor  started receiving criticism when he said in a speech that the use of force needs to be evaluated.

Question: Is There An Imposter On Facebook Pretending To Be Bishop T.D. Jakes Sending Out Fake Emails?

Image
Lord have mercy, I need to know.  There are so many fake pages   claiming to be Bishop T.D. Jakes that I don't know what's real and what's fake.  I have received the below message in my email this morning and even if I wanted to give to the Potter House Ministry,  I don't know what's real or what's fake.  Check out all the fake pages.  Fake, Fake, Fake, Fake, Fake.....
Ann
 Thank you! Your partnership, faithful support, and loving prayers have made 2014 an incredible year for T.D. Jakes Ministries.

The Prophets Are Coming!

I can't think of a better way to kick off the new year and remind the church to "remain focused" other than with a Holy Consecration Conference. January 4th - 27th, 2015.

 The victim was with another minister in a parked car, talking, when a gunman approached on foot and fired four rounds into a passenger side window, Heims said in a statement, adding that the victim was sitting in the passenger seat.

The Rise of the ‘Done With Church’ Population!

Image
Jesus fix-it, I am part of those leaving the church by choice. But, I do not encourage others to do the same...... To leave the church should be one's own personal choice.  This article speaks volume to my present situation. I do have a personal relationship with my Savior! I love HIM dearly and I know that HE loves me as well. I communicate with Him regularly and have planned for the coming year to get even closer to HIM. Personally, I feel that the majority of today's churches has created too many distractions, and have moved far, far away from purpose.

Andrae Crouch Tribute Tour Rescheduled For 2015 Without Pastor Marvin Sapp!!

Image
According to our friend, Sarah Hearn dates have been rescheduled for an Andrae Crouch tribute tour that was postponed earlier last month, with an added Birmingham stop.   The multi-act show, called "Let the Church Say Amen," lineup appears to be much the same, except for the absence of Pastor Marvin Sapp.

Sometimes We Can Be Too Darn Stupid For Words??

Image
Someone in one of my Facebook groups posted the above pic and the following comment to the group discussion. Now, I'm guessing he was advocating throwing this young man out of the community. What do you think?
"According to Leviticus concerning LEPROSY. This guy is an UNCLEAN LEPER because it does not cover his entire body from head to toe... This is the curse TMH showed Moses, when he commanded him to place his hand inside of his bosom Mariam, Moses sister, was turned like this." Now if, this person would have done a simple google search he would have known that this is not LEPROSY but instead a pigmentation disease. Maybe vitiligo!

Hospice To Partners With Pastors In New Program!

Image
My up most respect go to this organization.

Hospice of Dayton will roll out a new program this spring designed to support and educate local pastors in caring for the dying.
“When people face a serious illness or death, they typically turn to two people. One is hospice and the other is their trusted clergy,” said Kim Vesey, vice president of mission support at Hospice of Dayton. “While both of us are quite experienced in ministering, we believe that if we partner together, we could bring superior care to those at the end of life in our area.”

Lord Have Mercy Egypt Bans Film 'Exodus Gods and Kings' Because Of 'Historical Inaccuracies'!

Image
Now deal with that Ridley Scott! The new biblical epic 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' has been banned in Egypt because of 'historical inaccuracies'. The head of the censorship board said these included a claim that the Pyramids were built by Jews, and that an earthquake, not a miracle by Moses, caused the parting of the Red Sea. Morocco has also reportedly banned the film, which stars Christian Bale as Moses, despite the fact that state-run Moroccan Cinema Centre (CCM) gave the movie the green light. Cinema owners in Morocco claimed that they were given a 'verbal' directive to not show the movie by the CCM on Wednesday - just a day before its planned release.
