The Metaphysics Of Repentence – It’ll GetChu Straight

So you f’ed up.  So what?  We all do, because we all are human beings.  Now if you are an ET, or if I am a sista from another planet, then I would come down on you for making mistakes.  Otherwise we all are going to make them, based on our own internal reference point….

Exactly Who Are These Other Sheep That Jesus Has?

Who were Jesus’ other sheep?  Did they consist of all the rest of the world outside of the biblical area of what is now called North Africa, and did Jesus visit them outside of Judaical knowing?   In other words, was Jesus dealing with other peoples that the Jews of old knew nothing about?  Is there…

Straight Outta East Oakland

I have recently read “Straight Outta East Oakland“, by Rev Harry L. Williams, a hard hitting and profound story about a young man from the deep ghetto, who has a strong desire to go to college, but no resources to fuel his hope. The young man, Firstborn Walker, is highly focused on going to college in the neighboring…

Judson Press Presents – The Audacity of Faith

Dear Anna Renee, In 2009, Judson Press published The Audacity of Faith: Christian Leaders Reflect on the Election of Barack Obama. Now we’re asking those same Christian leaders to participate in a virtual roundtable, discussing the President’s first term in office.

Your Girl’s Busy Becoming Herself!

It’s so interesting how prayers work in mysterious ways that you don’t expect.  I have often prayed for boldness and discernment, because I have always been a very timid person.  But I have always had the spirit of greatness inside my heart, always desiring bigger and better things without knowing exactly what they were. Being timid with…

The Incomparable Glide Memorial Church of San Francisco

Last Sunday, Aug 26, I visited the famous Glide Memorial Church in San Francisico, CA.  This church has been a bastion of good works and is well known and loved the world over!  Yet, it’s interesting how I have never been there before in my life, especially since I was born and raised in San Francisco within a mile of…

John 8 – The Terror of Arguing With God

This morning, I was listening to my CD’s of James Earl Jones reading the New Testament, (an experience in and of itself) and I was struck by the dispute the Pharisees were having with Jesus.  As I listened closely, I noticed that everything the Pharisees were in dispute with Jesus with was logical.  Everything they pointed out against Jesus…

Bishop Noel Jones – I Got To Get Myself Together

  We’re in times of great change.  Everywhere we look, we see all kinds of strange things going on.  Shifts in thinking are happening on a grand scale.  Everybody looks and sounds crazy to everybody else.  Personally, I’ve never seen so many cracked pots and nut jobs, especially in the political arena. But in times like these,…

Giving Away Money Can Bring You Joy!

This is Brother Franklin, and every time I think of him, my heart smiles.  He’s a dancer and he’s so over the top!  He’s so into his dancing, which is a fusion of many styles.  Brother Franklin is a lover of the Lord, and isn’t afraid to worship Him!  When Brother Franklin comes to bring his tithe to the…

Exploring Prosperity Preaching by Debra J Mumford, PhD.

Hey everybody! I was recently blessed to be called on to join a blog tour and review Rev. Dr. Debra J. Mumford’s new book on prosperity preaching, a subject that always sets my heart on fire!  And I don’t mean in a good way, as you all know, because my blood boils when I think about the manipulations, trickery  and emotional oppression…
