In response to the recent killing of an unarmed teen in St. Louis, my family invite you to join us in a Social Media Community of Prayer Campaign this Sunday, AUG 16th between 10 – 10:30 am (EST). To participate, we are asking everyone to do two things. First, pray on your own for something you want to change in your community on a National, State or Local level; no conference call or email will be set-up or necessary. Second, use the comment line below to add what you will be praying for so everyone can pray with you. Your comments will be a part of the Campaign Prayer List. As Christians, we believe prayers do change things! Hope you can join us because our communities today desperately need our prayers.

The NFL’s decision to draft the first openly gay player has sparked many unexpected feelings in me. I’ve spent the last few hours rooting for a man I do not know because I feel that what happens to him indirectly impacts every one of us. As an African-American, I am sensitive to the mistreatment of people thriving to live free in a country that prides itself on upholding the values of a democratic society. Michael Sam is proof that a person’s sexual orientation should never negate their right to achieve the American dream. I am proud that the Rams decided to focus on his talent, placed him one step closer to making the roster and looked beyond the fears of those pushing to alienate him because he is different.
I am not an advocate for any given cause but I am someone who believes in fairness and fearlessness.
