Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama. During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.
At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown, gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office. The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk. Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat.

Governor (appointed): P.B.S. Pinchback served as governor of Louisiana from Dec. 9, 1872-Jan. 13, 1873, during impeachment proceedings against the elected governor.

When asked why he wrote The Holy Universe, David Christopher replies, "Like so many people who left the faiths of their youth, I still wanted to believe, yearned to believe in something. But just as I found the interpretation of the stories of traditional religions deeply unsatisfying, the cold, factual stories of modern science also failed to speak to my spirit. Like the Seeker, I threw out the story of the scriptures that I was given, but couldn’t reconcile with the “Big Dumb Rock” theory of creation that emerged out of the mechanistic worldview of the European Enlightenment. More important, since I found myself in a world that seemed bent on economic and ecological self-destruction, I wanted a new spiritual direction beyond the platitudes of the self-help era."
David Christopher is an award-winning author and teacher of the “new story,” a story that integrates the science of the 20th and 21st centuries with a spiritual sensibility toward the creation of the Universe.
Today, David travels around the United States teaching about the importance of telling our collective story and finding one’s role in facing the crises of our age. He appears before a variety of audiences, including Unity and Unitarian Universalist congregations as well as college classrooms.
David has served as a facilitator and facilitator trainer for the Awakening the Dreamer Symposiums produced by The Pachamama Alliance. His work and his book are part of a growing worldwide effort to cause a major shift in humanity’s consciousness and worldview regarding ecology, social justice, and spirituality.

Apostasy in the Church, A Bible Study, by Prophet Dr. David Owuor!
Powerful teaching on apostasy in the church today and why we need to understand what the LORD says concerning these specific days, and the signs even in the House of the LORD!
Possessing a revelation on these global events, the economic crisis inclusive, and what they spiritually portend towards the rapture, is what a prudent church that has access to GOD 's hidden counsel and wisdom beholds. This is because the LORD is using the LION that HE presented to me in this vision to send forth the message that HE is coming, but this time around, the the day of HIS arrival will mark an irreversible event.
