God, by whatever name you call God, is not concerned with most of the stuff we humans fuss about. BUT, if God is concerned about anything it’s how we treat all life forms–other living beings. Jesus, for some of us, is all. For some others, he is nothing/no one. For me, Jesus is the greatest […]
“Whosoever will let him [sic] come” is the statement of invitation that Black preachers often make when “opening the ‘spiritual’ doors of the church.” This invitation is for those who are un-churched or un-saved (not Christian) to become members of a local Church and/or the Universal Church—the larger group of Believers who profess Jesus as […]
If you think you already know how to love then why would you even consider that I have something “you don’t already know” to offer? You wouldn’t, right? Another possible reason that you wouldn’t be interested in knowing about how-to-love is you are fine with things the way they are–you are accustomed to the turmoil, […]

We concoct ideas, images, ideals, gadgets, icons, etc. to make our point or our mark. How-to-love is no different. What I’m selling is a “way’” of being that is not altogether new, although […]
MLK, Jr. was assassinated over 52 years ago, but I’m guessing that Sunday morning in the US is still the most segregated time of our week. It’s interesting that on some level, we still purport to be a Christian nation, “one nation under God,” right? But, many of us have yet to experience the freedom […]
How can you get to the other side of a problem and end the punishing behavior. Knowing how-to love is a way to get there.
The truth of the matter is that to love radically is to be able to question one’s own sense of truth in favor of the relationship. I’ve got to ask at what cost does one let go of a negligible truth. Your decision is to determine if the relationship is worthy of your sacrifice.
