The difference between loneliness and aloneness

A friend of mine recently stopped me to share how my article "The power of Aloneness" had positively impacted her life. Because she is an excellent writer and presenter in her own right, I was both humbled and inspired. Others may have been similarly impacted so I thought it would be a good idea to revisit the difference between loneliness and aloneness. This knowledge will be extremely valuable, especially to women who are in-between relationships or experiencing the empty nest for the first time. It is in our understanding of the difference that we will be able to maximize our quiet time.

The plight of the Black man

Last Saturday night, I went to see the new movie "Fruitvale Station."

I cannot begin to tell you how powerful the story is. Michael B. Jordan (depicting Oscar Grant III) really captured what I call or consider the plight of the Black man. The main character was an African-American male who was killed by a policeman at the Fruitvale Bay Area Rapid Transit Station. Grant had some struggles in life and he definitely was not perfect. Grant had some previous run-ins with the law, but he was trying to get his life together. He was trying to stay on the right side of the law in efforts to stay out of jail and protect his family. What happened to Oscar Grant, being victimized and brutally murdered at the Fruitvale station, was unreasonable and simply uncalled for.

The Black Church: In relentless pursuit of the things of God

This week, the Minnesota Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of the Church of God in Christ (COGIC) celebrates 90 years of ministry and service to our community. Congratulations go out to Bishop Fred W. Washington and State Supervisor Patricia Hayes. The theme for this year's celebration is "In Relentless pursuit of the things of God." This theme is both timely and relevant. Life has a definite beginning and an end, and in between it is the pursuit of God and His purpose for our lives. Having spent my entire life as a COGIC member, and almost 30 years in ministry, I am personally aware of the importance of relentless pursuit. As I continue this pursuit, let me remind you of how important the black church has been to our community and this country.

Getting to interdependence

We are all born into this world with a dependency on others. As new born babes, we need someone to feed and nurture us. Without this care, we could only live for a few days at most. Moving from this stage takes time, growth, and development. As we move through the maturity continuum, we all progress through several stages. The three major stages of maturity are dependence, independence, and interdependence, with the highest stage being interdependence.
