    Quiet, Justice, Love - How We Think of Blackness

    in Culture

    Kevin Quashie, Ph.D., was the guest lecturer for Stetson University's Social Justice Lecture Series in fall 2014. The professor in the Department of Afro-American Studies at Smith College spoke on “Quiet, Justice, Love."

    In his talk, Quashie discusses African-American culture, often considered expressive, dramatic and even defiant, characterizations which are linked to the idea of resistance. Indeed, these terms come to dominate how we think of blackness. He addresses the topic of reimagining how we think about black culture, about resistance and justice. He questions how the idea of quiet, as a notion different from silence and as a metaphor for one’s inner life, could include insight into how to be alive in ways that are aware of social violence, but that retain the power and grace that is part of being human.

    For more about Dr. Quashie and his lecture, see the Stetson Today story: http://www.stetson.edu/today/2014/10/social-justice-lecture-quiet-justice-love/

    John Carver Show - It Starts with Declaring

    in Self Help

    President John F. Kennedy delivered this speech, "Special Message to the Congress on Urgent National Needs," on May 25, 1961 before a joint session of Congress. 

    "landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth" 

    Kennedy declared the goal long before it was a reality.


    “Faith has to do with things that are not seen and hope with things that are not at hand.” Thomas Aquinas.

    2 Corinthians 5:7  - "We walk by faith, not by sight."

    "So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight." This is the ESV translation; other versions use the word "live" instead of "walk". Either way, it means the same thing. "Walk" is a metaphor for the way a person lives his or her life.

    Donner Atwood:

    One night a house caught fire and a young boy was forced to flee to the roof. The father stood on the ground below with outstretched arms, calling to his son, "Jump! I'll catch you." He knew the boy had to jump to save his life. All the boy could see, however, was flame, smoke, and blackness. As can be imagined, he was afraid to leave the roof. His father kept yelling: "Jump! I will catch you." But the boy protested, "Daddy, I can't see you." The father replied, "But I can see you and that's all that matters."

    God says TRUST ME even though you can’t see what you’re going to land!

    Naomi's Daughters: The Art of Doing "YOU"

    in Spirituality

    Next on “Naomi’s Daughters” The Art of “Doing You”

    Brought to you by Kingdom United Ministries Network

    Call (914) 803-4491 and press (1) to speak with the hosts


    In the Claude Monet painting “the Garden” the beauty of the vibrant water lilies (in their vast array of colors) dance against the backdrop of the deep dark hues of blues, greens, purples and everything in between.  Looking closer at the beauty of the painting is the brilliance of the colors that are accentuated by the palette of blackness that is consistent throughout.

    In life, we (like the painting) have both the vibrant places (successes and accomplishments) represented by the water lilies as well as the dark places we’ve experienced that no matter how much we achieve, we are ever reminded of our failures and pain.  What causes some people to shine brightly in spite of a dark past while others struggle with overcoming the shame of them?  Join us for this month’s broadcast of “Naomi’s Daughters” Saturday Nov.1, 2014 @ 10:00 am Est. Visit our webpage @Kingdom United Ministries Network by going to www.kingdomcomenet.com  or call (914) 803 – 4491 to listen LIVE and press (1) to speak with the hosts.
