In my dream, I didn’t recognize my surroundings, but it was a large room packed with women who were eagerly waiting for me to teach. Excitement permeated the air like electrical current. I did not actually see any faces, except for one, a white sister from my church, Stephanie, who always has a pleasant demeanor that lights up her countenance. She is loved by all in our congregation.

“Please cancel Sound of Faith with their agency as soon as possible.”
It was quite a shock when we recently received this news that a major Christian network was canceling our radio program Sound of Faith on 19 stations they own, because they are against women preaching in the pulpit.

Benny told him that he would not be able to get there until after my doctor’s appointment. Continue reading That Little Voice in Your Spirit
“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3). I have used this text as the launching point for several sermons. It goes right to the heart of what American Christians face in the present godless, anti-religious, especially anti-Christian, climate. It has motivated me to preach boldly the unimpeachable principles of the Bible that I was raised on; that have been the foundation of our nation, the most blessed and prosperous in history. But they are now being removed with increasing rapidity—What will I do? What will you do? What will we do? Continue reading Don’t Remove Ancient Landmarks!
