DEFEATING THE GIANT WITHIN

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. – 2 Timothy 1:7
What a powerful sermon the young pastor preached recently about that four letter word that begins with “F.” That special word that has robbed so many of their dreams and evokes […]

SPORTS: THE UNSPOKEN DRUG

As I was driving to return a rental from a long weekend trip a few weeks ago, I listened to hours of talk radio sounding off on Don Imus and his statements regarding the NFL player Pacman Jones and the whole Shaq vs. Kobe rap song. People were calling in to offer their views. A […]

Matthew 10:33: “Who ever deny me before men, I will also deny before my father who is in heaven.”
The day has finally arrived. My daughter left home for college.

BLOG DEBUT! THE MAGIC OF SPORTS

“The impact of seeing positive black men.” Those prophetic words kept ringing in my consciousness as I drove home after completing my second basketball clinic in 3 days. Over a 3-day span I had the pleasure of interacting with 200 inner city youths, teaching, speaking, laughing and having an overall great experience. A […]

OLYMPIC SHOCK AND AWE

Let’s start […]

THE DASH IN THE MIDDLE

First, my condolences and prayers to the families of Bernie Mac, Isaac Hayes, Rev. Charles Belcher and Mr. Julius Butler.
The names of the last two gentlemen you may not be familiar with. They were colleagues of mine from church, who also passed away in same week as Mac and Hayes. All were great men who […]

Take It Like A Woman

Even from the other side of the world it looked ugly. Luckily neither ESPN Deportes nor CNN en Espanol kept it running on a continuous loop like I’m sure it did on their U.S. counterparts. After seeing a picture of it in a USA Today as I got off the plane in Santiago, […]

The Olympic Hurdle

The 2008 Summer Olympic Games are less than a month away. It is one of the most anticipated events on television and will be watched all over the world. So, why am I so uninterested? Why can’t I name more than two athletes who don’t play in the NBA? Why do […]
