Where Have All The Articles Gone?


Where Have All The Articles Gone? 


Hello my dear brothers and sisters in our fellowship of faith and the progression of humanity! Thank you for visiting my blog.  I appreciate your support over the past two years.  Your comments, emails, questions, and even critiques have blessed me richly.  If you are curious where all the articles have gone, I have taken them offline for a period to focus on a writing project I hope to have completed before the end of the summer.  Several of the concepts in the articles will be explored in this writing project and expanded and elaborated upon greatly.  If you would like to keep track of this project and its developments please join the mailing list below.  Otherwise, feel free to continue to visit this website which will continue to update with sermons, and relevant information regarding my ministry.

How Injustice Will Not Prevail: A Look at Luke 18:1-8

How Injustice Will Not Prevail
A Look at Luke 18:1-8
Lawrence W. Rodgers

Jesus cares about injustice.  Jesus cares about righteousness.  It is unfortunate that too often we preach a Jesus who only cares about lifting up the status quo, a Jesus who is only concerned with upholding power structures no matter how corrupt they might be.  But this not the Christ!

A Letter From A Ferguson Jail: What Dr. King Would Say About #BlackLivesMatter?


A Letter From A Ferguson Jail:
What Dr. King Would Say About #BlackLivesMatter?
Lawrence W. Rodgers


            What would Dr. King say about Tamir Rice, John Crawford, Eric Garner, Rekia Boyd, Aiyanna Jones, Yvette Smith, or Michael Brown? 

Many individuals have quoted Dr. King lately, and being someone who has studied a great deal about Dr. King, I must say I feel too many are only interpreting Dr. King through the “I Have A Dream” speech. However, if that speech and with some short video clips is all you know of King, you do not know him.  If you are curious as to how Dr. King would respond to the #BlackLivesMatter movement please do understand, beloved, whichever answer you come up with it would certainly not be inaction.  I would encourage anyone who cares about justice, in any form, to read the landmark open letter by King, “A Letter from a Birmingham Jail.” This article seeks to take this inspired letter and use it to prophetically address some questions for our time.
