Rocking my word

2 things rocked my world this week...
1. Two nights of CNN Black in America: insight into the lives of Black men and women in the USA.


Stats are shocking... I was moved to the core.

  • biggest killer of black women ages 25 to 34 HIV
  • 74% of all black children are born by single women and raised fatherless
  • 42% of all Homicides are black related even though the Black population is only 13% of our population. Most African Americans know someone personally who were violently killed.

2. Dave Workman's new book arrived ... The Outward Focused Life...the Intro was worth the price.

Here is part of the review...
In a world filled with YouTube, MySpace, Grand Theft Auto, and reality television shows, the idea that individuals might serve anyone but themselves is an anomaly. Yet, as Dave Workman, the senior pastor of Vineyard Community Church in Cincinnati, Ohio, predicts in this sometimes humorous and sometimes simplistic book, churches in America will become known for their desire to serve others rather than for their self-centered focus on theology or denominational politics.

Daves intro comment '
