Amos 9:13-15The Message (MSG)

13-15 “Yes indeed, it won’t be long now.” God’s Decree.

“Things are going to happen so fast your head will swim, one thing fast on the heels of the other. You won’t be able to keep up. Everything will be happening at once—and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessings like wine pouring off the mountains and hills. I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel:

“They’ll rebuild their ruined cities.
They’ll plant vineyards and drink good wine.
They’ll work their gardens and eat fresh vegetables.
And I’ll plant them, plant them on their own land.
They’ll never again be uprooted from the land I’ve given them.”DSC_5479

The City Of Praise Family Ministries – Coming Out of the Wilderness

We Were Down But Not Out! Now We’re Coming Out!

forest coming out 1a

As we went through our wilderness journey that began in 2012, we noticed that the hand of God covered us daily.  We have been under the glory cloud. God allowed the sun to shine through at times bathing us with light and discernment, lifting the fog and bringing clarity to our purpose and mission.  We were able to shake off dead weight and traditions, grow in unity and learn the power of love, forgiveness & mercy.

The spirit of God  has been with us as we dwelled in the secret place of the most high which is the word of God.   We remained under his shadow and canopy of protection for the past 3 + years and now our journey is coming to an end. The City of Praise Saints can now see the light at the end of the tunnel. We will finally be heard in court and there will soon be Validation, Restoration, Vindication and for some Incarceration.

 

2015 – THE YEAR OF RESTORATION

Lesbianism In The Black Church Revealed

What Do You Know About Lesbianism In The Black Church?

What Do You Know About Lesbianism In The Black Church?

When people hear about gays in the Black Church they automatically think it’s the ‘gay black man’. When in fact, it is the number of Black lesbians in the Black church that’s alarming. Many won’t believe the amount of lesbians that’s in Black churches… from the Pastor’s wife on down. Okay, so let’s see…you have Pastor’s wives that’s a lesbian, the Usher, the Sunday School Teacher, etc. Lesbianism is just as bad as gay men in the Black church, but society treats as if lesbianism doesn’t exist in the church. Why is this though? Is it because the “gay Black man” is more noticeable because of his feminine ways? Is it because the Black community stigmatize the male choir director or musician as the gay ones?

Sadly, to say the Black church is more acceptable of lesbians within our churches. However, we shouldn’t be as closed minded about this issue. We should treat lesbianism in harmony as  much as we criticize and judge gay men in Black churches. So, let’s be real now…there are a host of female Pastor’s that display ‘butch like’ tendencies, but we continue to look over the obvious. Am I telling the truth or what? For example you have Black female Pastor’s such as: Dr. Jasmin Schulark, Bishop Allyson Nelson, and Bishop Yvette Flunder just to name a few that either has admitted that they are indeed a lesbian and/or displays lesbianism tendencies.

C’mon Black church people…..if we are going to judge, criticize,  and rebuke the Black gay man in our Black churches, then we shouldn’t have a problem doing the same to lesbian Pastors either.
