Question of the Day (re: James Brown & Martin Luther King Jr) -- David Hinckley

Sat, April 5, 2008 -- by Wow Jones

In today's NY Daily News, David Hinckley offers a review of two documentaries airing this weekend. One being, "The Night James Brown Saved Boston" airing tonight on VH1 and the other documentary being, "King" airing Sunday night on The History channel.

The article points out something these two men--James Brown and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr had in common.

"If these documentaries did nothing else, they would confirm that both men, when they stepped to a microphone, got the attention of the room and knew what to do with it. " -- David Hinckley

For all those aspiring and reaching for the spotlight, I gotta ask, when that light shines on you, are you ready? Would you know what to do???

Rev Johnny Ray Youngblood -- Super Quote

Friday, April 4th, 2008 -- by Wow Jones

Rev Johnny Ray Youngblood
“A Dialogue With Death” --Sermon delivered on Easter SUN 3/23/08.

In a service where he declared that Preacher Jeremiah Wright “is my friend”, Rev Johnny Ray Youngblood of The St. Paul Community Baptist Church delivered a dramatic Easter Sunday sermon entitled, “A Dialogue with Death”

When talking about Jesus’ resurrection, he explains

“when the S - U – N rose that morning, the S – O – N had already risen."

“Now, my brothers and sisters, I Johnny Youngblood, I am a spiritual snoop, and whenever I read the scriptures, I’m always looking for a spiritual scoop.”

“the spirit is gonna let us for a little while, dialogue with him who is known as the landlord of the household of the lifeless.”

Now those are some zingers! For those interested in the manuscript of "A Dialogue with Death" contact the church.
