Category Archives: End of the Semester

#EracismSeminary

Sometimes Seminary can leave you emotionally drained, and still thoughtfully remaining with the Holy Spirit as to what God is calling you to next. We often joke about the bubble here at Seminary but this past week, it exploded.

So now what do we do?  


Welcome to the Other Side of the Font

The semester is slowly winding down and the cloud of witnesses gather in sacred spaces to send us out…

out to bring the prophetic, healing Word of the Creator, to remind those within our known community and throughout

the wider community…that God hears, weeps, and continues to love us all

Christmas Time is here; Traditions of a People

Merry Christmas!

The Christmas season continues for us as a people of faith

We have shared songs of celebration and joy

About something as unexpected and mysterious 

at the coming of this simple birth

that stands to transform this world

All throughout social media and through movies that I have watched

there was a sense of Unity as people, regardless of who they were or where they had journeyed from

Came to be gathered as one.

So,

is that so strange

That in this season of joy

a mighty people locked in exile would too, celebrate with joy their heritage?

Those principles that guided their ancestors

and in times of strife and chaos

they lean on?

umoja

Many will argue that Kwanzaa is nothing more than radical language

But

is it only because Kwanzaa can give nothing more

than pride, self-determination

that Kwanzaa fluidly flows from the faith in the Divine Creator

giving us purpose, rooting us to God

and footing to concretely stand on this world?
