    Two Lesbian Episcopal Clergy Marry

    in Religion

    Same-sex marriage is a phrase that conjures quite a bit of contention.  The contentions are subject to arise in any organization whether it is a family, workplace, the military or church.  The Episcopal Church it seems has just sided with same-sex marriage by allowing the marriage of two of their lesbian clergy members.  Of course, this marriage has brought on contention.  But why does the contention occur?  Is there really something wrong with same-sex marriage?  If there were something wrong with same-sex marriage don’t you think members of the clergy would know that?

    Dr Jamal Bryant Love It Or Leave It

    in Christianity

    Dr Jamal Bryant preaching Love It or Leave It, he talks about love being a many splendid thing and the love of money.


    Bryant was born to Bishop John Richard Bryant and Rev. Cecilia Williams-Bryant in Cambridge, MA while Bishop Bryant (at the time Rev. John Bryant) was the pastor at St. Paul AME Church. While growing up, Bryant saw the influence and dissected the messages his mother and father delivered each time they stepped in the pulpit. When his father was elected bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal Church the summer of 1988, the family spent time in Africa for their first assignment. The time spent in Africa helped change and prepare Bryant for his call to the ministry in the church.


    Bryant dropped out of high school after the 11th grade but later obtained a GED to further his education. He holds a BA degree in Political Science and International Studies from Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia and earned a MA of Divinity degree from Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.

    Repentance is the Key: 10 Million Black Men in Church

    in Religion

    The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) held an annual convention at the end of July, 2011.  They addressed a number of issues that face African-Americans, in particular, the vicious cycle of crime and unemployment that plagues black men and youths.  They cite the loss of manufacturing jobs, shrinking government jobs and the recession as major contributors, but the primary factor cited was the low level of education or rather, the lack thereof.  Is pushing for higher standards in urban schools where the majority of the students are minorities really the key to breaking the vicious cycle of violence and prison?  Will pushing our youth to strive for educational excellence keep them from becoming fodder for the criminal justice system or should we be looking beneath the surface of inferior education?  Join us as we search the scriptures for answers to these questions and more.

    I Wanna Go Back, and Eddie Money Won't Let Me!

    in Spirituality

    Eddie Money isn't the only one who wants to go back. In fact, the older I have gotten the more I have realized his famous song of that title is a spiritual masterpiece. Who among us, having left the farm of the comfortable spirituality of our childhood, hasn't at one point or another - perhaps many times - wished we could return to that simpler time with simpler answers to simpler questions? Yet, we also realize that life is not simple and so engaging it with integrity requires perhaps increasingly complex answers with each passing year. That doesn't stop the occasional, and sometimes frequent, yearning to return home. What does that yearning mean?


    These questions were brought home for me in a unique way late one night when I visited the website of a local Episcopal parish. They had pictures on their site of the bishop's visitation, and I was struck by the fact that there was only a handful of families present - so few in fact that the children's homily he gave before his sermon had only a few children listening to it. We could see this as a referendum on his Episcopacy - he certainly is a pompous ass of epic proportions - but I suspect the smattering of people in attendance actually reflected the state of the religion to which we sometimes long to return - the death rattle is being breathed. What do we do when that to which we long to return is no longer viable? This and more, today on Interspiritual Insights!
