My friends, we must focus on THE KINGDOM OF GOD this Easter season. It won’t be the blood of goats and bulls and human blood that revives us. This Easter season must be a season of repentance, thankful for THE BLOOD OF JESUS!
The Pulpit, Hoodies, and the Gospel: In black culture, zeal for the House of “black” has outweighed zeal for the House of the Lord.
“There’s power in the blood of Emmett Till, There’s power in in the blood of Medgar Evers! There’s power in the blood of Dr. King!” – Jesse Jackson
When I read Jesse Jackson’s quote from a sermon this past Sunday, my heart began to burn. Then on yesterday, I attended a march in downtown Indianapolis where over 2500 people showed up seeking “Justice for Trayvon”. As I hurried out the door, the Lord instructed me to put on my preacher’s robe because He had something for me to say. I quickly wrangled my black robe (which previously I have only worn once to officiate a wedding) out of it’s bag and made my way to the rally. Within minutes of my arrival, I stood on a hill far away from the crowd and surveyed the landscape, taking in an image that mimicked the photos that so many of us have seen from the Civil Rights Movement Era. Then something surprising happened. A young pastor who I recognized, emerged from the crowd with a megaphone and began to run towards me. Within seconds, a throng of the crowd began to follow suit and within 5 minutes the whole crowd was standing below the hill looking up at where I was standing. To my right was this young pastor, to my left was an older pastor, and behind me was an Imam from the Nation of Islam and his whole security crew dressed in slick suits and red bow ties. I don’t know how it happened, I wasn’t an organizer or even a part of the event. Maybe it was the robe, but suddenly, where I was standing became the pulpit.

As I was thinking about doing these Trayvon interviews and what my colleague said that Trayvon has nothing to do with abortion or euthanasia this quote from Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta came to me and so I thought I would share it with you.
“The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.” – Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
The killing of Trayvon Martin has destroyed the peace of his family, his community and indeed the nation.
The Trayvon killing has everything to do with abortion because as Mother Teresa said, if we accept abortion so readily the next progression is accepting the killing of those already born as evident by the two scholars that have proposed after-birth abortion.
