Going Beyond Kim Burrell’s Comments: The Church and Homosexuality

Hello there folks!  With it now officially being 2017, I hope people have completed their vision boards, made their resolutions, and prepared to hold themselves accountable for fulfilling their hopes and dreams for the New Year.  While I’m fully aware that there are those pessimists that will read this and think that there is no real difference between December 31st and the days that follow, I disagree to an extent.  I often find you are more hopeful in trying to fulfill your goals when you know you have another 365 days to succeed.  Folks just have to make sure to convert that hopefulness into plan and action so they can set new goals for the following year, and not have the same ones.

Anyway, I wanted to take a little time to talk about the Christian Church and homosexuality.  In the wake of the Kim Burrell controversy, I thought I’d add my two cents on not just on her comments, but the overall dynamic her comments speak to.  I fully understand the delicate nature of this conversation, so I’m going to do my best here to give my opinions, yet remain respectful.  The goal here is not to leave anyone with a bad taste in their mouth, although I’m sure some may disagree with what I have to say. So let’s jump into it.

What’s Your Song of the “Summertime”?

Hey folks!  As the official start of summer approaches, and my excitement about that grows, I’ve been in search of a summer song.  Every year I have that one song that puts me in such a great mood and gives such positive vibes, that I can’t help but to smile and rock out.  When I hear it, my head will get to bopping, shoulders to bouncing, hips to shaking, and the occasional stank face will appear.  For example, I remember my very first summer song was “So What” by Field Mob featuring Ciara.  How many of you all remember that?  That song cranked to me. Heck I remember watching the video on 106 & Park.
