A few thoughts

Dr. Martin Luther King, Letters from a Birmingham Jail:

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

Booker T. Washington, Up From Slavery:

Few things help an individual more than to place responsibility upon him, and to let him know that you trust him.

Black History Month

Since it is the last day of Black History month, I am thinking today about who are my favorite Black authors. These would definitely be at the top of the list (although in no particular order):

  • Booker T. Washington
  • Dr. Martin Luther King
  • Dr. John Perkins
  • Dr. Tony Evans
  • Dr. Kawanza Kunjufu
  • Dr. Cornel West
  • Dr. George Yancey
  • Shelby Steele
  • John McWhorter
  • Ed Gilbreath

Who is on your list?

I am seeking to know God.

I want to be a learner. I am seeking to know more about God's church, leadership development, relationships, racial righteousness, justice, and many other random subjects.

I am urban. I live in the city of Chicago. I am seeking to learn more about the people, the problems, and God's plan for my community.

I am seeking to be a better husband to my wife and better father to my children.

Anyone else seeking?
