"I write for the same reason I breathe — because if I didn't, I would die. — Isaac Asimov
Tavis Brunson a.k.a. “The Minister” is a native of Columbia, SC. He began writing in high school around the age of 15, starting with raps of a secular nature and received high grades on English assignments when he exercised his poetic gift. While attending college in Atlanta, he began writing on more Christian subjects. When he moved back to SC, he turned his talents to songwriting for budding gospel group, Complete. After that, he took a hiatus from writing for a few years, except for the occasional poem here and there.
He moved to Orlando, FL in 1999 and in 2002 his writing was re-born from great spiritual and emotional trials. In finding this new voice, his writing evolved into a spoken word style and he first performed this new work in church. At the urging of some friends, he attended his first open mic in Orlando; he was very well received and it was on…his spoken word career began.
He was a 3 time member of the nationally ranked Columbia Poetry Slam Team (www.ColumbiaSlam.com) , 2006 Southern Fried Champions. He was also the 2006 Columbia Grand Slam Champion.

You would be hard press not to miss the lyrical flows of Tavis Brunson from Charlotte, NC. This poet, this man speak words identifying with many. His true to life words keep everyone's head bobbin even when there is no music in the background. His words bring two or three or more to agree. He leaves some with their mouth open,... thinking, "...no, he didn't just say that". His CD "Sanctuary" has been around for a while and in 2009, it need to be resurfaced. HLT is featuring Tavis Brunson for the entire 90 minutes. The Crewsaderz are really getting into "Sanctuary" and the man who wrote the lyrics.
Prophet Charles E. Briggs, Jr. was born to Charles and Gloria Briggs on January 28, 1978, in Greensboro, NC. He began singing at 7 years old at St. James United Holiness Church in Greensboro, under the leadership of the late Bishop Ruby G. Woodson. Many knew that this dynamic young man possessed giftings and capabilities far beyond singing and that he would someday preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Over the course of many years, Prophet Briggs has led praise and worship, directed choirs, and taught new members and Sunday school classes. Most of all, this great prophet has been a servant to God first and to leadership.
Prophet Briggs has had the privilege of working with song writer Becky White, Soloist Kim McFarland of Milton Brunson and the Thompson Community Singers, LeJuene Thompson, Walter Johnson and Pastor Jessie O’Banner and Job’s Company and Dr. Terry Poteat & Joyful Praise. In addition to being a dynamic preacher and anointed psalmist, Prophet Briggs also wears the hat of an author. His first book, “A Messy Miracle”, is a journey through his life experiences.
While God has called Prophet Briggs to lead and shepherd many, he too submits to leadership and serves under the awesome covering of Bishop James Dunn (Narrow Way Pentecostal Churches, Inc., Covington, Ga.) Prophet Briggs reaches out to a wider audience in his capacity as panelist and contributing pastor on the TCT network. He can often be found dialoguing on “Ask the Pastor” or on “Praise-a Thon.” Moreover, God has opened many doors to allow the Kingdom message to be spread through this vessel, giving birth to the evangelistic arm of his life's work, Prophet Charles Briggs Ministries.

This morning we will be talking about two topics:
Reactions to Obama's stategy to "wipe out" ISIS. Reactions have been mixed and vocal. Members from both Houses of Congress are showing there is a division and concerns with the "strategy". At 9AM Ben Brunson, Historian,Economist and author, will be joining us to discuss this issue.
Next, we will try to address the questions "Are we trying to be too politically correct?" "Is being PC (politically correct) making us weak?"
Look forward to you jumping "In the Barrel" with us and taking part in the discussions.
Ben Brunson is an economist, author and thinker on things political and military. Besides the actual facts of the incident that took place in Ferguson, Mo., the police reaction seemed off balance and not well thought out. Coming out in military uniforms with armored transports and weaponry was pouring gasoline on the fire. Rather than putting out the disturbance, it caused it to continue for two weeks. But looking the other way didn't work either. Militarized police are the rule in America today. How did it happen and where is this trend headed? Ben gives us a closer look and helps you understand what's next.
