    RAIN PRYOR

    in Entertainment

    Rain Pryor is an acclaimed director, actor, stand-up comedian, educator, dynamic speaker, and mother. As artistic director of the Strand Theater in Baltimore, MD, Pryor placed the theater on the DC/ Baltimore map, leaving the Strand with a surplus that it had not seen in its five years. She stepped down to start her non-profit Baltimore TheatreWorks. Baltimore TheatreWorks provides performance opportunities and builds a theatre arts culture for grades 6-12 in Baltimore City. Pryor is a headlining stand-up in her own right. She fills her own shoes where stand-up is concerned and is not trying to be her iconic father, Richard Pryor. She has been featured regularly in Baltimore with good friend Mickey Cucchiella. Together, Pryor and Cucchiella are developing many projects. The Baltimore Sun chose Rain as one of 3 area comics to watch.   "Fried Chicken and Latkes" is Pryor's award winning solo show based on her life. It is a irreverent and poignant look at racism. Rain completely created and wrote her show, including adding some original music and lyrics. Rain was a Los Angeles Times "Critics Choice" and her singing voice and sense of timing were hailed as rare gifts. The NY Times "Critic Pick" and review says, “she has an outsized presence built for Broadway." The show is the recipient of the NAACP Theatre Award, Best Female Performer Equity and was recently selected as a Celebrity Solo Performance for the National Black Theatre Festival.   She stops by to chat on Tuesday, June 18, at 7pm EST.

     Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.


    8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.


    9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door.

    Enjoying the Rain

    in Spirituality

    Boys to Men recorded the song a few years ago, "Can You Stand the Rain"? I love this song but I never answered the question about being able to endure the rain.  Well today, I'm Empowered to know that yes, I can handle the rains of life and you can too!  


    When a seed is planted in the soil, it doesn't grow unless there is some rain that falls to encourage the roots to become grounded and growth to take place.  Today, let's take some time to appreciate the rain and begin to grow!  Galatians 6:9, "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.


    Join us and be Empowered!
