    The Role of the Church in Community Development

    in Non-Profit

    Today’s episode is “The Role of Church and Community Development”.  We will discuss the history of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church and its impact on community and society in particular and the role of the Church, in general, and its responsibility to community. 


    Our guest for today is Rev. Albert D. Tyson III, the Presiding Elder of the North District, Chicago Conference of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church. The AME Church was founded in 1787, and has a mission to minister to the social, spiritual, and physical development of all people.


    Elder Tyson is highly involved in the AME Church, and the community and civic affairs of Chicago and beyond.  His resume is extensive, and time does not permit me to share it all, but here are a few highlights.  Elder Tyson is a member of the Board of Examiners of the Chicago Conference African Methodist Episcopal Church. He has served as the Vice-President and and the Parliamentarian of the Board of Directors for the Interfaith Organizing Project (IOP).  Elder Tyson also has served as the Treasurer, and eventually, the President, of the Near Westside Community Development Corporation (NWSCDC).

    Deepertruth: Eucharistic Miracle of TIXTLA MEXICO, OCTOBER 21, 2006

    in Religion

    1. The reddish substance analyzed corresponds to blood in which there arehemoglobin and DNA of human origin.


    2. Two studies conducted by eminent forensic experts with different methodologies have shown that the substanceoriginates from the interior,excluding the hypothesis that someone could have placed it from the exterior.


    3.The blood type is AB, similar to the one found in the Host of Lanciano and in the Holy Shroud of Turin.


    4. A microscopic analysis of magnification and penetration reveals that the superior part of the blood has been coagulated since October 2006. Moreover, the underlying internal layers reveal, in February 2010, the presence of fresh blood.


    5. They also found intact white blood cells, red blood cells, and active macrophages that engulf lipids. The tissue in question appears lacerated and with recovery mechanisms, exactly as occurs in a living tissue.


    6. A further histopathological analysis determines the presence of protein structures in a state of deterioration, suggesting mesenchymal cells, very specialized cells, characterized by an elevated biophysiological dynamism.


    7. The immunohistochemical studies reveal that the tissue found corresponds to themuscle of the heart (Myocardium). On account of the scientific results and the conclusions reached by the theological committee, last October 12 the Bishop of Chilpancingo, his Eminence Alejo Zavala Castro, announced the following: - “The event does not have a natural explanation. – It does not have paranormal origin. – It is not traceable to manipulation of the enemy.”

    Living with MST Brain Lewis

    in Military

    Brian enlisted in the Navy in 1997, attended initial training schools, and advanced to the rank of Fire Control Technician Third Class. During his tour on the USS Frank Cable (AS-40), a superior non-commissioned officer sexually assaulted him in August 2000. He was ordered by his command not to pursue a report of this crime with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. After this crime, Brian was misdiagnosed with a Personality Disorder by a Naval psychiatrist and discharged by his command in August 2001. He received a disability rating from the Department of Veterans Affairs in June 2002 for his post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from the military sexual trauma. Brian’s petition to change his discharge from a general discharge for a personality disorder to a medical retirement for post-traumatic stress disorder was denied by the Board for Correction of Naval Records in August 2004.


    Brian holds an Associate of Applied Science degree in Paralegal Studies from Anne Arundel Community College, a Bachelor of Science degree in Paralegal Studies from Stevenson University, and a Master of Science in Forensic Studies from Stevenson University in December 2013. His master’s thesis was written on military sexual trauma and nominated for publication in the Stevenson Forensics Journal.


    Brian is currently a second year student at Mitchell Hamline School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota where he is pursuing a joint JD/MPA program and serves as Treasurer of the Mitchell Hamline Veterans Association.


    He hopes to continue serving by litigating and continuing to advocate for veterans and military sexual trauma survivors.

    in Spirituality

    After 5 and 1/2 years Terri Horman, stepmother of Kyron Horman who is still missing since June 4th 2010, has decided to speak to the media. WHY?  You have to ask yourself why is she suddenly talking?  Without lawyers by her side?  Withour lawyers clearing what she says. Why is she NOT talking with police enforcement?  What is she saying?  The first interview was granted to People Magazine, than ABC. Tune in to the show tonight Wednesday January 27, 2016 at 6:30pm EST  to hear my review of the interviews.We will talk about body language, deception and her choice of answers.


    Noah Chamberlin, 2 years old was dropped off at grandma's house, went for a hike and ended up dead in Pinson, Tennesee. Last week I did a profile of little Noah and told you here on the show that Noah was a Gemini and that his ruling planet Mercury was retrograde and that he would be found. The next two days the Moon was in his sign of Gemini and I said he had a good chance of being found and that he would be found by Monday the 25th as Mercury was going direct. This in fact did happen as he was found the following day. He was found in a clearing a mile and a half from where the grandmother said he was lost. Tune in for more on his case.


    Making  A Murderer is a mini series by Netflix that has everyone talking about the Teresa Halbach Murder from October 31, 2005. Yes I watched it and have been asked to do a profile on Teresa Halbach to see if she in fact was murdered by Stephen Avery than 43 at the time. Was Stephen framed?  I will do 3 charts from the case to give my professional opinion on the entire scenario.

    We talk with author James Renner

    in Books

    Renner is the author of The Serial Killer's Apprentice and several other works of nonfiction. His true crime stories have appeared in The Best American Crime Writing anthology, as well the Cleveland Scene and Cracked.com. His method of using social media to solve cold cases was the subject of a CNN profile, in 2015.


    The Great Forgetting (2015 Sarah Crichton Books)


    In The Man from Primrose Lane, James Renner fused time travel with serial-killer thrillers, resulting in what the Associated Press called "a superbly crazy and imaginative story." Now, in The Great Forgetting, he blends science fiction and conspiracy thrillers with a touch of pure fantasy, and the result is just as crazy and imaginative.
