SORT BY Relevancy
Many think it's just a softball game and black folks eating food,NAW it's more than any human can imagine when a Mother apologizes to the Mother who son was killed by her son.THAT'S HEALING AND IT'S TAKING PLACE EVERY WEEKEND AT SOULFUL SOFTBALL SUNDAY.... A new weekly softball game in Nichol Park is shaking up neighborhood boundaries with a radical idea: everyone -- from every part of Richmond -- is invited to play and hang out in the same place without fear of cross-town violence.
“My inbox is flooded with messages from guys in different parts of town,” explains Rodney Alamo Brown, co-organizer of the Soulful Softball Sundays event.

“How do we lead the horse to the water? That’s what we had to figure out,” Brown explains. “How do you get people to the mental health services they need? How do you peel back the layers of fear people have about leaving their own neighborhood? We said, ‘Let’s take people back to when they were eight-years-old and they had no worries in the world.’ These games are like a reunion of sorts.”
When Brown and Cloird grew up in Richmond, Nichol Park was the spot to play baseball in the city. The two are trying to recreate the innocent playground of their youth, and they invite all of Richmond to join in.
“We’re not handing out pamphlets, we’re just talking with people,” Cloird explains. The most important part about Soulful Softball Su

Richmond,CA Police Chief Chris Magnus,I will conduct an exclusive interview concerning The Baltimore crisis and his unique method of community policing. Chief Magnus, who is white, went so far as to hold a “Black Lives Matter” sign. “It seemed to totally represent what we’re trying to accomplish,” says Magnus, “which is respect: this idea that we acknowledge that the relationship between police and the African American community, particularly in many cities, has really been at best strained and at worst incredibly difficult for many, many years.”Magnus took some grief for holding the sign, but he stands by his decision: “It doesn’t mean a wholesale endorsement of attacks on police or saying that police are brutal or racist across the board. Of course I don’t feel that way. I feel like all lives matter. That’s really what community policing should be about.
On the show, Matt Norman and David Maddron will continue to talk about worship in children's ministry. They are joined by a great worship leader Yancy Richmond who will share her heart for worship and families and how you can enhance your children's ministry with a great worship experience.
