    Addressing the Pink Elephant: The Black Church and the LGBT Community.

    in Christianity

    No matter where you fall on the spectrum, all of us need to strongly consider and dialogue about how we will do ministry in a world that will no longer define marriage and sexuality by traditional terms.  


    The overall objective of this conversation is NOT to force a change in people's opinions or theologies; the main purpose is to begin the much-needed dialogue on the realities of doing ministry with the LGBT community in mind.  Whether you affirm or deny homosexuality theologically, we can all agree all people are worthy of experiencing God's love; and we must admit that the church has traditionally been a very hostile and hypocritical place for LGBT individuals. How do we do ministry today in a way that upholds our biblical convictions (as diverse as they may be), and still demonstrate love to a community (as diverse as it may be)?


    Special Guest: Pastor Dwight Radcliff


    Pastor Radcliff holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies (with highest honors) from the Long Beach Bible College, and a Master of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary (with an emphasis in Multi-Cultural Ministry/African-American Church Studies). He is currently pursuing his PhD.


    Special Guest: Pastor Curt Thomas


    Pastor Curt Thomas is a graduate of Stillman College in Tuscaloosa, Alabama where he received a Bachelor of Science in Education.  He furthered his study in ministry by completing a certificate program with Interdenominational Theology Seminary in Atlanta, Georgia. He incorporates the knowledge and skills garnered from his studies in his approach to educating, counseling, andempowering his church members and community members at large. Pastor Thomas serves as the Senior Pastor of The Renewed Church of Los Angeles.

    "Religion in the LGBT Community" presented by LGBT Real Talk Radio

    in Blogs

    Religion has been a source of both solace and suffering for many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. For while most LGBT Americans have been raised in an organized religion — and many continue to cherish their faith community — too many have been forced to leave those communities behind because of condemnation of LGBT people.


    And yet in recent years, a growing number of organized religious groups in the United States have issued statements officially welcoming LGBT people as members. Many religious organizations also have taken supportive stands on the issues that affect LGBT people in America, such as the fight for freedom from discrimination, the solemnizing of same-sex marriage and the ordination of openly LGBT clergy.


    LGBT Real Talk Radio welcomes the Rev. Valarie Oliver as our special guest for next weeks show on Religion in the LGBT Community. You won't want to miss this very informative show.

    "Depression in the LGBT Community" presented by LGBT Real Talk Radio

    in Blogs

    Many LGBT people — particularly youth and seniors — experience higher rates of rejection, bullying, harassment, general mistreatment and even violence from the people and institutions that should be protecting them. The enormous effort of … hiding in order to avoid rejection from their families, employers, churches, schools, friends and neighbors can create an even greater sense of anxiety, fear and isolation.  The LGBT population also has a higher tendency for suicide and self-harm.


    Please join us in the studio on March 24, 2015 at 8:30pm est as we talk about this very important topic.

    Messiah Community Radio Talk Show

    in Religion

    Our special guest is Veronique Jones, an artist who specializes in Ketubahs. 


    The ketubah is a unilateral agreement drawn by witnesses in accordance with Jewish civil law, in which they testify that the husband guarantees to his wife that he will meet certain minimum human and financial conditions of marriage. Once the ketubah is completed, the procession proceeds from the groom's table to the bridal throne, accompanied by singing and dancing. 


    Veronique Jonas (nee Soriano) was born in Lubumbashi, Zaire, presently the Republic of Congo. As a young girl, Veronique relocated with her family to South Africa where she received a Bachelor of Art degree from the University of Cape Town. As a young wife and mother Veronique once again relocated. This time to Dallas, Texas. For close to 20 years Veronique was Art Director and teacher to hundreds of Elementary and Middle school students at  the Solomon Schechter Academy where she was known to draw out a child’s hidden inner potential to communicate through the medium of art.


    Veronique still resides in Dallas with her husband of 40 years. Her 3 children are now grown, providing Veronique with yet another viewpoint of life as that of a grandmother.
