Sons are a heritage from the LORD,
children a reward from him.
Even a child is known by his actions,
by whether his conduct is pure and right.
Train a child in the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not turn from it.
Folly is bound up in the heart of a child,
but the rod of discipline will drive it far from him.

"Black churches are very powerful forces in the African American community and always have been. Because religion has been that one place where you have an imagination that no one can control. And so, as long as you know that you are a human being and nobody can take that away from you, then God is that reality in your life that enables you to know that." --James H. Cone

Anti-abortion billboards around Atlanta are causing a stir for their claim... that African-American women get a disproportionate amount of abortions compared to other women, reports the Atlanta Journal New ads featuring a young black child are popping up around the Atlanta Metro area… According to FOXNEWS.com the Billboards are an effort by the anti-abortion movement to use race to rally support within the black community. The reaction from black leaders has been mixed, but the “Too Many Aborted” campaign, which so far is unique to only Georgia, is drawing support from other anti-abortion groups across the country. The effort is sponsored by Georgia Right to Life, which also is pushing legislation that aims to ban abortions based on race. Some say that the language in the billboard is using messages of fear and shame to target women of color. What do you think?...What if they would have put a picture of a black father on that billboard instead of a child?They seem to be even more difficult to come by than the kids. Do you agree with the billboard message?

I get tired of the media saying "pregnant man". No matter what this person looks like on the outside this is a She! If you have female organs you are FEMALE. While SHE may look outwardly male, and APPEAR to be male, she is still a woman biologically. This person is a pregnant woman! I find it strange that this woman wanted to erase her outward female appearance but still wants to reproduce. Which ONLY WOMEN can do!. We have been designed by God for a purpose...God never purpose man to give birth.

I have learn through my research.... that the song quality of hooping is a legacy of long-ago African griot, or storytellers...
Rev. Nathan Dell, who teaches preaching, or homiletics, at the Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology at Virginia Union University in Richmond. "They memorized the history of the tribe and it was their task to teach the community," Dell said. "They told the story in ways that could be remembered, in ways that would move folks' heart as well as inform their minds." Enslaved Africans brought that tradition to America, and free black pastors adapted it to preaching. "They had no formal education, but they preached in the style of their tradition which had a rhythmic quality to it and a feeling or emotional quality to it," Dell said.

"Considering our sample includes liberal and conservative, all races and ethnicities, mainline and evangelical, we were surprised that the list looked like mainstream Christian radio and publishing and was not more representative," he said. "Of course, the majority who answer drive the final numbers, but I was expecting more diversity in the responses."
Question: Why are lists and surveys important?

Aid groups have been desperate to fly their own planes into the over-stressed airport. U.N. humanitarian spokeswoman Elisabeth Byrs said Tuesday that at least 800 planes with relief items are on a waiting list for the airport, which can handle only about 130 flights a day due to a lack of space to park planes as they unload.
The aid group Doctors Without Borders has complained that the flight scheduling priorities of U.S. military controllers running the airport delayed the arrival of field hospitals, resulting in some deaths.
