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.

No matter where you fall on the spectrum, all of us need to strongly consider and dialogue about how we will do ministry in a world that will no longer define marriage and sexuality by traditional terms.
The overall objective of this conversation is NOT to force a change in people's opinions or theologies; the main purpose is to begin the much-needed dialogue on the realities of doing ministry with the LGBT community in mind. Whether you affirm or deny homosexuality theologically, we can all agree all people are worthy of experiencing God's love; and we must admit that the church has traditionally been a very hostile and hypocritical place for LGBT individuals. How do we do ministry today in a way that upholds our biblical convictions (as diverse as they may be), and still demonstrate love to a community (as diverse as it may be)?
Special Guest: Pastor Dwight Radcliff
Pastor Radcliff holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Biblical Studies (with highest honors) from the Long Beach Bible College, and a Master of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary (with an emphasis in Multi-Cultural Ministry/African-American Church Studies). He is currently pursuing his PhD.
Special Guest: Pastor Curt Thomas
Pastor Curt Thomas is a graduate of Stillman College in Tuscaloosa, Alabama where he received a Bachelor of Science in Education. He furthered his study in ministry by completing a certificate program with Interdenominational Theology Seminary in Atlanta, Georgia. He incorporates the knowledge and skills garnered from his studies in his approach to educating, counseling, andempowering his church members and community members at large. Pastor Thomas serves as the Senior Pastor of The Renewed Church of Los Angeles.
On this episode we bring you Yolonda and Jeri. These two southern born and bred ladies remember how church was back in the day and want to tell you all about it. They come from a time when church was actually a force in the community, when the doors of the church were always open to those in need and the pastor was never too busy to give you a few minutes of his time.
Tune in to hear their experiences and how that compares to the church we see today. Which is better? What should we bring back from the old church, and what should we leave behind? This show is guaranteed to be entertaining. Got an opinion? The chat room will be open or dial in via phone.

TONIGHT AT 7 ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WE'LL CONTINUE WITH THE PLUM CREEK DEVELOPMENT STORY IN THE THIRD INSTALLMENT. WE'LL MOVE TO A DISCUSSION OF THE UNINTENDED AND NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES THAT NEIGHBORS TO THE AMBITIOUS PROJECT WILL FACE AND HOW THEIR LIVES CAN LITERALLY BE TORN ABOUT. THE DISCUSSION YOU WILL HEAR IS A PART OF GEORGE SIBLEY'S EXCELLENT AUDIO PODCAST CREATED IN PART BY SUPPORT FROM THE SIERRA CLUB. AND I MUST ADMIT THAT THIS HUMBLE HOST IS INCLUDED AS ONE OF THE PARTICIPANTS SINCE i ALSO LIVE CLOSE BY THE WHERE THE ACTION WILL BE.
THE MAIN POINT BEING MADE IS THAT THE ENTIRE PROJECT IS OVERKILL, TRYING TO FORCE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW CITY IN LOW, OFTEN FLOODED LAND WITH NO INFRASTRUCTURE. AND SINCE PLUM CREEK HAS MADE IT CLEAR THAT THEY WILL NOT DO ANYTHING TO ACTUALLY DEVELOP IT THEMSELVES, THE LOCAL TAXPAYERS, INCLUDING THOSE OF US DIRECTLY IMPACTED, WILL PAY THE PRICE BOTH IN TAXES AND LOSS OF QUALITY OF LIFE. DOES THE COUNTY GOVERNMENT CARE? ONLY TIME WILL TELL AND THAT WILL COME IN NEXT WEEK'S MASSIVE PUBLIC HEARINGS.
WE HOPE YOU'LL TUNE IN FOR WHEREVER YOU LIVE, DEVELOPMENTS OF THIS TYPE ARE BEING PLANNED THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES. I GUESS PEOPLE WILL FINALLY WAKE UP WHEN THE TREES ARE GONE, THE SPRAWL HAS LEFT BEHIND BOARDED UP COMMUNITIES AND WE'LL WONDER WHAT HAPPENED. SO PAY ATTENTION, YOU MIGHT LEARN A THING OR TWO THAT YOU CAN DO AS WELL.
Its time we know whats out there BEYOND THEM CLOUDS!!

NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WILL PRESENT PART TWO OF PLUM CREEK TIMBER: THE REST OF THE STORY, FEATURING GEORGE SIBLEY'S PRODUCTION FOR THE SIERRA CLUB OF PLUM PUDDING ON FRIDAY. IT WILL CONTINUE THE EFFORTS TO QUESTION A MAJOR DEVELOPMENT BY A LARGE REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST IN FRAGILE, WET AND RURAL NORTH FLORIDA. CITIZENS BECOME AWARE OF THE ISSUE AND BEGIN TO ORGANIZE TO IMPACT WHAT IS UNFOLDING. WILL THEY BE SUCCESSFUL IN ULTIMATELY ACCOMPLISHING SOMETHING POSITIVE FOR LOCAL RESIDENTS OF THE AREA OR WILL THEIR EFFORTS BE TO NO AVAIL? WELL, WE'LL JUST HAVE TO WAIT TO SEE HOW IT ENDS UP.
THIS IS NOT AN INDICTMENT OF DEVELOPMENT, FOR WE ALL KNOW THAT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND JOB GROWTH IS NECESSARY FOR AN ECONOMY TO FUNCTION EFFECTIVELY, BUT THERE IS A CATCH WITH THE APPROACH IF IT ISN'T TEMPERED TO A DEGREE. WHEN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICALLY DESTROYS THE NEARBY NEIGHBORS, IT'S NOT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AT ALL. IT'S ECONOMIC DISASTER.
THE SHOW WILL RUN AT 6 PM (ET) FRIDAY AND THEN BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND 24/7. WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US.
ALACHUA COUNTY, FL COMMISSIONERS WILL SOON DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT THEY WILL GRANT PLUM CREEK TIMBER APPROVAL TO BUILD A "CITY IN THE SWAMP" ON ENVIRONMENTALLY SENSITIVE LAND. THE REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST HAS CONDUCTED A MASTERFUL CAMPAIGN TO PIT GROUPS OF PEOPLE IN THE COUNTY AGAINST ONE ANOTHER BY PROMISING THE "WORLD" TO SOME AND IGNORING THE CONCERNS OF OTHERS.
THIS SHOW WILL BEGIN THE AIRING BY NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE OF FIVE INSTALLMENTS WHICH WILL PROVIDE, AS THE GREAT PAUL HARVEY SAID, THE REST OF THE STORY. THEY WERE PRODUCED FOR THE SIERRA CLUB BY GEORGE SIBLEY, A TALENTED PRESENTER WHO INTERVIEWED A NUMBER OF CITIZENS WHO HAVE HUGE CONCERNS ABOUT THIS ACTION. NOW I DON'T AGREE WITH MANY OF THE ACTIONS THAT THE SIERRA CLUB SUPPORTS, ON THIS ONE THEY ARE "SPOT ON". THIS BROADCASTER IS PLEASED TO HAVE BEEN ASKED TO PARTICIPATE AND WAS INCLUDED IN THE INTERVIEWS.
JOIN US FOR THE FIRST OF FIVE PRESENTATIONS AS WE DISCUSS HOW FLORIDA COULD BE LOSING ITS VERY LIFEBLOOD, THE PRECIOUS AQUIFER AND THE UNQUE SURROUNDINGS THAT MADE FLORIDA SUCH A SPECIAL PLACE. OH, DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH IS NATURAL AND CAN BE VERY GOOD, BUT UNBRIDLED GROWTH WITHOUT CONCERN FOR THE CONSEQUENCES IS VERY DANGEROUS, BOTH HERE IN FLORIDA AND THROUGHOUT THIS GREAT LAND. THE SHOW WILL BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND FOLLOWING THE LIVE BROADCAST ON WEDNESDAY. WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US.
This is the First Show of the year and always an Honor to interview the folks at ScottsMiracle-Gro. They are announcing a new program "Pollinator Promise" Grant program. You can go to their website and fill out an application Today! at www.scottsmiraclegro.com/pollinatorpromise

In today's show, we examine the business of church. While we know the true mission is to bring souls to Christ, many churches have stopped making that their main focus. Instead, the focus is on finance, prosperity, convocations, committees, concerts, random ministries and more. Has this even been effective?
We'll search Scripture to find examples of the proper use of money in the church. This episode is guaranteed to enlighten and inform but do take note: the truth will compel you to examine how your ministry is run. Is it about the money or is it really about leading souls to the Lord?
