It was at the age of 13 that I knew I would be destined to be a pastor in the church. I was reared in the United Methodist Church, but my conversion took place in a Baptist church on Hwy. 341, Mt. Zion Baptist Church. One of my childhood friend's grandmother, Mrs. Dolly Young, invited me to Spring Revival at their church.

It was after that most ...
The J. P. Morgan fiasco of two billion dollars plus the flagging economy and lack of jobs made me start to think of bank closings of the past.

It's not hard to tell when the Christmas shopping season is officially in full swing because my children's cartoons become shorter along with the days. Instead of regular programming, their 30-minute show is crammed with 20 minutes of commercials telling my kids why they absolutely can't live without and must have a stuffed animal that magically transforms into a backpack or a bed or a three-bedroom ranch with optional den.
On a recent fall afternoon, a crowd of Arabs and Jews gathered in front of the concrete wall that divides Israel from the Palestinian territories, holding signs reading, "Revenge is not a political plan" and "Stop the violence! Yes to coexistence!"
