At the dinner table we usually start by blessing the food, talking about what we are grateful for and who we helped today. However, in addition to our dinner tradition, the other day my wife and I discussed (again) with our 13 and 17 year old African American teenage boys the harsh realities of racism and police brutality. We discussed the power of not living in fear, but of being wise, aware of your reality, how to interact with an officer if approached, walking in the neighborhood, socializing with friends and maintaining vigilance in all situations. I wish we lived in a society where my wife and I didn’t have to have these specific conversations centered around the African American male experience and concerns we share as African American parents

QUESTION: Many have debated what Jesus wrote in the sand as the religious leaders questioned him regarding the woman caught in adultery. What do you think Jesus wrote in the sand?
- John 8:5-6 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such a woman. So what do You say?” They said this to test Him, in order to have a basis for accusing Him. But Jesus bent down and began to write on the ground with His finger.
MY ANSWER: Are you ready for my revelation? Here it is; I honestly don’t have a clue and I suspect if Jesus wanted us to know the answer the answer would have been recorded in the bible. That’s my 2 cents and I’m sticking with it. What do you think?
