This image is the earliest known image of Jesus Christ, from the Coptic Museum in Cairo, Egypt. This painting of Jesus is older than the image of the black Jesus Christ in the Church of Rome which is from the 6th century.

🙌

Not that it matters what “race” Jesus was, but it may really partially explain why there’s a higher percentage of Blacks going to church in the United States, at least, last time I checked….

Love and Physics

“Some people say that love doesn’t make sense, that it defies the laws of physics, and maybe in some ways it does, but some are finding that in some ways it does exactly as what physicists might expect. For initially, one wouldn’t wish to return hate with love but rather hate with hate, yet in reality that should not be the case (according to physics…). Look at it this way - they say for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, so although hate is as strong as (equal to) hate, it only fuels more hate. This is where inertia is seen, causing the object in motion (an act of hatred) to remain in motion (fueling and instigating more hatred). But love is equal in magnitude to (as strong as) hate, yet is opposite in direction. So, by virtue of Newton’s First Law of Motion, this act of love versus the act of hatred would at least put the initial object (act of hatred) at rest, until of course another force acts upon it. Therefore, if love continues to act as a force upon this act of hatred after its being at rest, it should return to being an object in motion, yet THIS TIME, because of the law of conservation of energy (and momentum and mass and EVERYTHING…get the gist?), the object at motion is no longer an act of hatred but an act of love, for it has conserved EVERYTHING that the force of love gave it. Furthermore, this object in motion is open to any and all other forces. So, if the force of love is strong enough, continues to act upon it, and fueled by other sources (forces) of love, this act of love can overcome and transform other acts of hatred into acts of love. So, Martin Luther King, Jr. had a point when he recited that only love can drive out hatred and light can drive out darkness. In retrospect, love does not only fall into the Laws of Physics, it’s indubitably formulated into the Laws of Life.”

When She Dances

**(part of a 3-part poem series)

Some people ask her

Where she goes

When she dances

She tells them

“To a better place”

And they wonder

What that place consists of

“It’s like no world

You can really imagine.

There are no pictures,

There are no words,

There are only movements

And sensations

You can neither see nor hear

You just feel”

Those sensations

Those movements

Embedded her into another human being

She was another girl

Another lady

Another woman

When she danced

The dance FOR her life

And the dance OF her life           

And she was only happy

Only content

Only joyful

Only when she danced

For this was where

She allowed the earth

To have its way with her

To let gravity take a hold of her

Only to suddenly fight an indiscernible demon

She’d been struggling with

Secretly the entirety of her life

No matter how open about herself

She normally seemed

Yet in her dance, you sensed the struggle

And you felt the openness of the demon

And you realized the escape

Finally

The freedom of winning against her demon

At least one more time

And the world recognized the beauty

Of her strength and her courage

Her magnificent faith

In the succumbing to gravity

Trusting that there would be something

Or maybe someone

There to catch her fall

Trusting the magnificent design of her body

Crafted and sculpted like none other

Mended and molded to a simple and quiet perfection

Preened and cleaned, CLEANSED, of life’s social impurities

Shed through the blood, sweat, and tears

Of a dance that preceded years and decades

And centuries before her own

Shed through the tears, the blood, and the sweat

Of her aggravated magnificent design of a shadow

But when she dances…

You dare to believe in this seemingly newfound

Faith

You dare to discover the source of the weakness in her

Strength

You dare to rejoice in the presence of the heart in her

Love

You dare to suspect that this radiance stems from a connection

Above

You DARE to recite all the utterly detestable and nauseating but truth-filled

Clichés

And you DARE to begin to understand for what it is her body

Behaves

You dare to understand the wisdom her body spews from century-old

Proverbs

You dare to reach out for the words of existential knowledge that was never

Hers

You dare to preach to yourself a truth that you never thought you’d

Believe

You dare to rest in the solace of your history within which lies nothing but

Grief

But more importantly, in your heart, in your soul, and in your mind

You dare to dance with her

Mourn with her

Struggle with her

Breathe, sigh, and lie with her

In the innocence of finding serenity

And not fail to remember

That when she dances

She cannot see you

She cannot hear you

She cannot really

Be near you

Therefore, simply allow her

To feel you

Though please,

Tenderly remember,

Not only

When she dances

What God Wants You to do Today.
1. Be Thankful. Give thanks for Today and for all you have. God’s Will for our life includes a constant spirit of gratitude regardless of our circumstances. When we choose to give thanks, even if our circumstances don’t improve, our perspective certainly will.
“This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-28 2. Don’t Worry. Refuse to let fear rob you of your peace. God is bigger than whatever you’re stressed about! Give your worries over to Him.
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” Philippians 4:6 3. Seek God. He wants a relationship with you. He wants you to pursue His Kingdom because you will eternally be part of it.
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13
“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” Matthew 6:33
4. Help Others. We live in a selfish world, but selfishness isn’t part of God’s plan for any of our lives. He wants us to care for others every chance we get.
“Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.” James 1:27
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10 5. Trust God. Every difficult circumstance in your life is something God will use for your good and His glory. He has great blessings in store for you. Trust Him and don’t give up!
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[i] have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. “ Jeremiah 29:11
