Is your work in ministry preventing you from HANDLIN' YO' BIDNESS? (Isn't handlin' yo bidness, minstry?). Have you ever been so focused on serving your pastor that you can't support yourself or your family? You may be meeting the basic needs, but what if you want to get a better job or start a business. Is your work in the ministry keeping you from going to school, or getting a license? Within the CFR family, we've been experiencing blessing that come from new business opportunities, which have affected schedules for a little while. We believe that their priorities are in the RIGHT place! And when their schedule gets more free..their PLACE is right there waiting for them. But how many of us had to take a ministry BREAK, and were condemned and rejected for it? God wants you to handle yo' bidness...but does the IC Church want you to?
Join me as I talk live about issues with starting a small business- getting loans and working with the small business administration. Truck drivers, small contractors, freight haulers, anyone trying to get a contract through the city of philadelphia you don't want to miss this!!!!
In today's show we will be talking about an individual's calling and how the "church" can get in the way? Does your church try to water-down and "control" your anointing? Do they tangibly support your godly ambitions or are they jealous of it? Do they try to control your career? Do they really want you to succeed in what God has called you to do, as long as it through them and on their terms? Does your church help or hinder your own personal goals?

The Buzz.. Here in Philadelphia we HAD a strip mall that consisted of a Black owned and operated bank and several little stores named "Progress Plaza". It was the brain child of Leon H. Sullivan to make progress in the way of redevelopment and job opportunities and give inner city folks a place to shop (were several supermarket chains there back in the day) as well as other businesses that were not able to thrive under the pressure of newer bigger better enterprises. But, the sentiment was a good one..
The Sting... The mall was not able to sustain major chains or retailers and became a dilapidated strip mall that did little to lure folks to shop there. What role does gentrification play on progress? Did it help the neighborhood even tho it tore down Progress Plaza and renamed it to include an upscale supermarket?
Is the history represented by those unkept structures more important than moving into the next century? Is there anything wrong with tearing down a place called Progress Plaza? Is the end of the era that provided pride through entrepenuership as exhibited by building Progress Plaza?
The Healing...sometimes the way to new progress is to rebuild on the old. Here's a sports analogy...This year the Eagles are rebuilding the team and there are some who are angry McNabb is gone and others who realize that in order to make progress you have to sacrifice. are you one for progress by rebuilding or progress by renovation? lemme know
