    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). He is a former member of the Board of Trustees for Chicago City Colleges and was recently appointed as a commissioner with the Chicago Public Building Commission.

    Community Reinvestment/Development Lecture and Gospel/R&B Showcase

    in Lifestyle

    In this episode of The Community Reinvestment Show I present a pre-recorded lecture about ways to uplift economically depressed communities that are plagued by poverty and violence. I will also showcase some local Gospel and R&B singers like the Orr Sisters, Necia Sharpley and Kenn Orr. One of the central goals of the community reinvestment show is to shine a light on the performing art talent in the Huntsville and surrounding areas. We are blessed to have gospel talent like the Orr Sisters, Neica Sharpley and Kenn Orr among us. They provide spiritual and relaxing music and have uplifted many lives. We must continue to support our local performing arts as well the performing artists as well.

    "Avoid head trash. Do not be a garbage can for anything that does not feed your intellect, stimulate your imagination, or make you a more compassionate peaceful person. Refuse to open your mind to other people's trash. Tune out anything that promotes conflict. This can infect you with a mind virus of cynicism or defeat and you will not even know it!  Be deliberate about setting up your day to win. Whatever you feed your mind in the first 30 minutes of the day, will impact the spirit of your day. Saturate yourself with positive words that fuel your energy and ignite your spirit. Your thoughts create your reality. Create an extraordinary life! You have GREATNESS within you!"  ~ Les Brown

    Lions do not have to roar. There is power in silence, confidence, and persistence. Those who work don't talk, and those who talk do not work. Handle your business. Measure your efforts by results. Focus your time, energy, and activity on mastering and executing a plan.  Avoid the energy draining practice of telling people what you're going to do. Instead, spend your time and effort in doing the things that are necessary to accomplish your goals. Keep your focus. and stay determined in order to pursue your dream. Let your work, not your words, speak for itself. You have GREATNESS within you! ~ Les Brown

    Stop trying to change the people you love and change yourself! Stop trying to change people who take your money but will not take your advice. You will only drain your own mental, spiritual, emotional and financial reserves. The truth is...people change when they are sick and tired of being sick and tired or hit rock bottom.  If you are dealing with addiction or irresponsible behavior from grown adults ~ protect your wallet and your mind. It does not mean you do not love them. Your attempts to help may only delay what is inevitable. Allow them to take the journey they have chosen for themselves. Choose to let go of the guilt and be at peace. You may require counseling or emotional support to stop being an enabler. If necessary, give yourself some distance so that you can stop being used or manipulated because they know that you care and you love them. You have the right to enjoy a guilt-free, happy and productive life. Commit yourself to changing the only person you really can - YOU!! You have GREATNESS within you!! ~ Les Brown

    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.

    Are you a spectator in your own life? Do you sit on the sidelines planning, thinking, trying, but never fully doing? How many days have been paved with good intentions but no follow-through? Today, choose to believe in and explore the power of your own engagement. This means to fully connect to your calling and passion in life. Lean into it. Pursue it every day ~ despite the distractions in your life, or in spite of any perceived limitations. Decide to live far beyond any past regrets or future excuses. DETERMINE to find a way or make a way. GO FOR IT!! Choose to be unstoppable in pursuit of your GREATEST life! ~ Les Brown

    Decide today to make your future brighter than your past.  Become still and think about what you want more of in your life, or what you value the most in your life right now. Commit yourself to making this a huge priority. Where your attention goes, your energy flows.  Create positive stories in your life every single day. For the next 7 days, do not listen to or talk about anything negative that happened to you, or someone else in the past. Allow yourself to bring light where there is darkness; speak peace where there is anger and infuse love where there is indifference. Create something today that you will be proud of in the future. You have GREATNESS within you!! ~ Les Brown
