  • There is a universe of wonder dwelling in little things

    The event occurred many years ago, when I was a graduate student immersed in the large universe of theological thoughts and historical ramifications; however, the incident remains as vivid to me today as it was then. 

    Accompanied by a dear friend, I was strolling to the college cafeteria. It had rained hard all day and we were walking in the midst of a superfine drizzle that was dampening my spirits. I fare well in sunny weather and am a bear when the skies darken and grayness falls upon the earth.

    The desire to make a difference for the youth of Haiti led one local church to break out sewing machines.

    Earlier this year, it was placed upon the heart of Big Macedonia Church senior mission director Dale Williams to reach out to the people of Haiti. At the time, she wasn’t sure what mission project the church should undertake.

  • Change is in the air and I am breathing deeply of its fragrance

    President Obama claims change as his policy for and promise to our nation. The seasons change quarterly. With incredible rapidity, impending drought changes to hazardous flood conditions. Election time draws near. Candidates cry out for change. Change governmental strategies, change political parties, change your voting process. Change and choose differently.

  • The church was alive with the sound of music

    It had rained with biblical proportions for days. Roads were washed out...yards were flooded. Pools of standing rain could be seen everywhere. Local meteorologists repeatedly urged people to refrain from using the highways and byways. The clarion call was “stay home.” However, a workshop and concert offered by an internationally renowned musician, liturgist and songwriter had long been planned and organized.
