1. Thank you Rev. Sidney Williams, Jr. For your frankness of the physical matter. Nevertheless, the Bible speaks of our spiritual condition this way, “the whole head is sick, and the whole heart (body) faint.” Until We from the top down seek a transformed mind, your words as many others will sound good but fall on empty hearts. Or as Paul stated by the hand of The Holy Spirit, “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not LOVE, I am become AS sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.” Blessings. { emphasis added in two places}.

    • I definitely value your insight my friend. The love you speak of is not necessarily an emotional one, but rather a love that confronts duplicity and affirms oneness. The absence of such love results in deception, fear and misplaced anger. In fact, the wider the gulf is between what we preach and how we relate to one another the greater the disillusionment. Our church has an incredible legacy and a very relevant mission, but many are walking from the pew and the pulpit. We have to find the strength to love each other again in new and meaningful ways.

  2. Thank you my brother. And when we find a way to love as Jesus loved, then we will do the things you addressed in your article, in your article and the AME CHURCH will become alive again. But as long as the head is looking out for the head and not the body we will continue to suffer.
    Blessings. DLS
