Sunday Sermon at Union Cathedral Bishop McCrae -"It Didn't Break Me"


 I thank God for Technology.  I am from South Georgia but now live in Richmond, Virginia and the church I attended does live stream of the Sunday Service and Bible Study on Wednesday.  Our pastor is Bishop Wade McCrae.  Today he preached a sermon called, "It Didn't Break Me".  In it King Nebuchadnezzar demands that 3 Hebrews bow down to his god an engraven image.  Meshach, Shadrack, and Abednego did not bow and were thrown into the fire where they were not consumed.  God protected them and Jesus walked in the fire with them.

This example of God's love and mercy is something we can see in our lives.  Many times when I was lead astray I thought if only I would have stuck to the Bible teachings.  God is love and he wants us to love others as we would love ourselves.  Bishop McCrae preached The Problem they encountered and Their Purpose was exposed.  He said that people would insinuate things about you Christians.  We don't have to worry about the negative things that someone may say.  We know the truth so don't let it get you down.  Jesus is always there for us remember that during adversity and he will uplift your spirits and give you the means to walk through hardship.

During these times of the COvid-19 pandemic and Trump inciting and insurrection at the US Capitol we need God and his grace more than ever. When you are going thru the fire remember Bishop McCrae's sermon, "It didn't break me!!"

If it would have been Black Lives Matter Protestors at the US Capitol

  If the protestors that stormed the US Capitol would have been Black Lives Matters protestors, the reaction by police would have been totally different.  Those insurrectionists were white and there was only a small police prescience.  With the inauguration only days away, security of the US Capitol grounds should have been top priority.  We have to be thankful, that event could have occurred while Biden was being sworn in. I noticed from the news a few police officers only pointing their guns at the rioters.  If they would have been Black, officers would have fired several shots into the crowd.  Trump and those around would use that to degrade the Black community and charges of the ringleaders would have been more severe.  I would further say that if Trump would have been Black he would not even have been elected President and if elected would have been impeached and convicted in the Senate.  I believe the 25th amendment would have been invoked against him.  This country has let Trump

John Lewis a Civil Rights Icon Passes Away

John Lewis dedicated his life to service from civil rights to serving in the House for the state of Georgia since the 80's.  During a time when their was a real struggle for civil rights in the Black Community, Lewis was a champion for the cause.  He was a Freedom Rider and the last surviving member of the "Big Six" organizer and speaker at the March on Washington where Martin Luther King gave his famous "I Have a Dream" speech. Yesterday John Lewis's body was driven over the Edmund Pettus Bridge where "Bloody Sunday" happened when police attacked protesters 55 years ago who were marching to Selma, Alabama. John Lewis's life is a testimony of what Black America should aspire to.  As a young man in the 60's he lived the civil rights struggle.

First Pitch by Dr. Fauci - Yankees vs Nationals tonight on ESPN at 7pm EST

Dr. Fauci one of America's leading doctors concerning an infectious disease Covid-19, is throwing the first pitch in tonight's MLB game: The New York Yankees vs. The Washington Nationals in Washington DC.  A lot of people have been talking about this and how it will go over since it will be played with no fans. Today is opening day and we will see. No slight to Dr. Fauci, but I wonder with the protests and Black Lives Matter would major league baseball ever let one of their founders throw out the pitch or someone like Derrick Johnson president of the NAACP?  Has Jesse Jackson ever thrown out a first pitch?  Just curious.  I did some research and the answer is yes.  Jesse Jackson threw out the first pitch on April 6, 2013 between the Chicago Cubs vs. Texas Rangers.  Rep. John Lewis who recently passed away threw it at Washington Nationals game back in April 2018. I caught the first pitch and Dr. Fauci threw it to the far right of the catcher.  No biggie we know why he was there
