Advent Conversations - LOVE

Show The World JESUS  If your neighbor or someone you encountered in a public place asked you what is Advent about, how would you respond? Would you talk about the themes, symbols, scriptures, or traditions you know of or practice in your home? What a GREAT opportunity to witness [testify] to your neighbor! If this is your first time, you may feel awkward at first because you are not sure how to start the conversation or how to say it without all the BIBLE language. What does it really mean to witness for JESUS? Witnessing simply means telling others by our words, actions, and attitude what we’ve personally experienced (i.e., “seen”, heard, and believe in our hearts)  of the LORD JESUS. In what ways can we demonstrate [be a witness for] JESUS during this holiday season? One way is to make the most of every conversation by trusting GOD for the right words. Praying to GOD for wisdom and active listening may be our contribution in the first encounter.  If you are blessed to meet up again

World Teachers Day

My Sunday School Primary and Junior Class Teacher (Christine Gee) and Elementary First and Second Grade Teacher (Ruth Eubanks) fervently taught their lessons with inclusivity, love, and certainty. They commanded respect and your attention with clarity. They made you want to engage. There were no silly or dumb questions. In those early years, I was always asking questions and following up with "WHY". 😆 I only recall one black male classroom teacher in my school years but today there are many more.  Teachers like mine (Gee and Eubanks) are making a difference today all around the world!  My teachers convinced me that nothing was impossible.  HOW???   Both ladies lived their lives with intentionality which provided me evidence that when I purposefully engaged with (exercised) faith in GOD for what I could not do or see yet for me, all things meant for me were possible.   GOD has a plan for our lives and no matter what our current situation, HE can work through it to pros

Let Your Light Shine

I am so elated that safe in-person gatherings are on the rise.  As I am a social butterfly, I am re-engaging with a new perspective and appreciation for being in community.  I have had plenty of time to understand what a community really looks like and the benefits of belonging to one.  The challenges of the pandemic brought to the forefront what it really means to belong in a community.  I saw people that I had never met before because they found a way to let their lights shine.  Their light brought joy, peace, love, and a renewed hope that GOD was still with us.  Using creativity, people were encouraged, reunited, and even started new relationships.   We are not meant to be alone.   We are designed to belong and fellowship Be mindful to hold space for others when you are able to do so.  You will need the same done for you.
