Brotha Ash Productions presents: Reverend James King - Spirit In The City

Not a WORD!
MARCH 2006:
The Christmas lights and trees are gone, but the bills aren't! The New Year Cheer and the resolutions have been made and they're also gone and so is the first two months of a new year. Where has it all gone, so fast, so futile, so dull and mundane for so many, and again its starts all over, again? A new year, life's a party and some people really believe that it's okay and it must go on as is. The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire, we don't need no water let the **** burn! The roof isn't what's on fire, but rest a sure there will definitely be a need for water and it won't be a roof, it will be more like the basement!There are too many preachers and crusaders more concerned with being on TV with their own personal agendas, then there are taking care of what really matters and what really counts! The people! Drug transactions still taking place right in front of the new Sr's apartments on Center Avenue, three blocks away from the police station and surrounded by churches, but not a WORD! There in the pulpit, but they've never really left the massa's house, there still the house nigger! But enough about some of the preachers still on the plantation.Unbelievable, unpredictable, unfathomable weather, babies burned, bagged, thrown away, seniors being left to die in the cold, forgotten, families burned up, burned out, shot up, shut out, kids and adults still killing each other, but life's a party and people really believe that it still must go on. All the heinous news that has been flooded into our homes, work places, churches, everywhere and some people really seem to believe that it's okay and must go on as is. All this and really there's been Not a WORD! There was a time that folk got together and made a statement, and took a real stand. Not anymore, folk just talk about what needs to be done, and relive and reenact what once was. But folks today, not a WORD! The world's media networks have given us everything but what we really need to hear, some Good News! I'd like to give you something that didn't make the news. This past Sunday, just like the Sunday of the Super Bowl, Not a WORD! Because there was a WORD! Two Christian coaches, it was great that they were African Americans, but that was just the icing on the cake, they were Christians first and they let the world know! But was it the topic of the lunch room, did you hear all about it on the bus ride to work, have you heard about it until you were sick of the super bowl? No! Not a WORD!This past Sunday the legendary evangelist Billy Graham with a crowd in attendance of 16,300 in the stadium. Led Those Saints down to Bourbon Street in the heart of New Orleans. One veteran officer said, he thought there was going to be a riot, but it turned into a revival, right there on Bourbon Street! Two hours after preacher Graham had left they were still having a HOLY GHOST party!Did you hear anything about this miracle, this life changing, life altering, life saving experience for those down on Bourbon street being saved? No! NOT A WORD! Life can be a party, but it's up to you which one you go to. <<>>"I would rather live my life as if there is a God, and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't, and find out there is."
