    Kingdom of Heaven (ACAD: Daniel 4)

    King Nebuchadnezzar to all peoples, nations, and languages that live throughout the earth: May you have abundant prosperity!

    Poem: WHERE IS YOUR HOSPITALITY? by LaShawnda Jones

    [A rebuke from the Lord] Where is your hospitality? What happened to your love? Your charity? Your kindness? Why are you growing weary? Did I not promise to keep you? Refresh you? Restore you? Are you not certain that you will overcome your current trials? Have you noticed how hardhearted you’ve become? Why did you allow that to happen? Where…

    Pride is all about self

    There is nothing of God in your pride or self-professed righteousness. Pride is all about what you want for yourself, what you like for yourself, what you do for yourself and any other self-seeking pleasures you decide to pursue (for yourself). There is no room for God in this scenario because there is no room for the needs of other…

    I was so moved by the historical, social, political, and familial contexts of this documentary, I don’t really have my own words to describe it.

But, all in all what stood out most to me was the commitment…

    The Joy of Volunteering

    volunteer: a person who voluntarily offers himself or herself for a service or undertaking; a person who performs a service willingly and without pay. There’s something about giving of yourself with no expectation of recompense. Just freely offering yourself with the understanding that your offering is an act of service that will multiply to bless those on the receiving end in ways you cannot fathom. Hurricane Sandy has decimated the East Coast. There are parts of New York City that survived unscathed,…

    Film: UNCONDITIONAL

    Unconditional is a lovely story about a woman’s recovery from hopelessness, a young girl finding her voice after trauma took it from her and a community of children claiming a man as their Papa Joe. It’s also a story of a man who remained a friend and a warrior for those under his care. If you’re looking for a movie…

    Just do it – You Are Duty-Bound!

    It is important to know that yes, as individuals, we need to be grateful, but as servants we need to be humble. A humble servant is lowly in self-estimation. There is no pride or ego that needs the flattery of gratitude. Humbleness is modesty, but it’s not weakness. A great deal of strength is required to completely set your self…
