Posted: Updated:
BLACK FAMILY CHURCH

This Sunday, we join Rev. William E. Flippin in learning about the African principle, Ubuntu. "The philosophy of Ubuntu derives from a Nguni word, ubuntu meaning 'the quality of being human.'" In his sermon, he asks how can we apply this principle to how we relate to each other and our church.

In honor of Super Bowl Sunday, resident youth minister, Princeton Parker points to how differences in opinions (even at sporting events) can take an unhealthy turn and lead to unbridgeable gaps. He looks to scripture for answers on how to bring unity in spite of strong divisions.

Finally, Rev. Wil Gafney addresses the bizarre Eddie Long that circulated all of our Facebook streams this week. She shares her point by point rebuttal to the claim that Long is King.
