You Are Not Going To Believe What I Heard Proverbs 11:13 “A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret”


he other day someone tried to engage me in a gossip session but God was with me and just then HeNry NelsoN another coworker walked up and I left them to talk. However, I did wondered why they wanted to share this negative information with me. So this is how this message came to life. Have you ever wondered when conversations are gossip and when they are acceptable conversations? The difference is in motive and accuracy. Ephesians 4:15 says, “Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.” Amen! One struggle that people have is that they believe that “not gossiping” means ceasing to having any conversation about people and what’s going on in their lives. Most of us cannot do this and for good reason; people are a huge part of our lives. The good news here is that stopping all conversation about people is not what God

is asking us to do. You need to examine the accuracy of the information as well as your motives in telling the story. Myself I am concerned accuracy, if you are not sure about the truth of the story that should be enough to stop us from sharing it. If it is something that you were concerned about because someone that we love is involved, you should proceed not by sharing the unverified story, but by going to the person in question and sharing our concern. “I heard this and I wanted to make sure it was not true.” For some people, though, the presumption is that if the accuracy of the information is confirmed, then sharing it is not gossip. “I’m just telling the truth,” they’ll say. But there’s a second factor at play and that is the motive we have in sharing the story. Even if a story is verified to be true, if we are sharing it with the motive to hurt the person, to taint their reputation, or just because we want to be the first to share the juicy news, our motive is bad. Here is an example. Let’s say I have a friend named John who has told me he is getting a divorce even though he’s only been married 6 months because his wife had an affair on him. Scenario #1: My heart is broken by his pain and by the knowledge that I have that marriage is a sacred covenant before God and therefore divorce pains Him. In my private prayer time, I shed some tears for John and his pain.

Later that day, I see Francine a mutual friend of John and myself and I share the news with her: “John shared with me that he is going to be getting a divorce. If you get a chance to talk to him, I think he could use a shoulder to cry on.” Notice I did not share the salacious but unnecessary details about the affair. Notice also that I shared accurate information with a motive of helping John, not hurting him. Scenario #2: Having found out about John’s divorce, I am quick to share every detail with everyone from our workplace that I can talk to. My facts are accurate, but my motive is impure and my actions hurtful to John. So, it’s important that we both be sure that our information is accurate and that our motive is pure. Those two factors make up the difference between gossip and appropriate conversation. Have you ever thought about why do we Gossip? I think it is because we love our insider status more than we love people. James 3:1-6 says,” Not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. We all stumble in many ways. If anyone is never at fault in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to keep his whole body in check. When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong

winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.“ Amen! We seldom think about the implications for the person we are gossiping about. Our thoughts are usually on being the first one to spread the news so that we will get credit for being “in-the-know” and others to share their gossip with us when they have got some. The simple but hard truth is that we are raising ourselves up by stomping others down. The simple but hard truth is that we are enhancing our own image without consideration that others must foot the bill. The simple but hard truth is that we are willing to destroy others’ reputations and lives in order to improve our standing. You may wonder why you should change your words. Obviously, what you just read about a moment ago hints at one good reason. That is you should love people more than your insider status, but there are other reasons that directly apply to us.

are coming. Listen to the Living Bible paraphrase “the down side” of life that faces every youth. “It will be too late then to try to remember (God), when the sun and light and moon and stars are dim to your old eyes and there is no silver lining left among your clouds. For there will come a time when your limbs will tremble with age, and your strong legs will become weak. You will be afraid of heights and of falling, a white hair withered old man, dragging himself along; standing at death’s door. I don’t want to alarm young people, nor do I want to depress them, but the writer of Ecclesiastics who thought enough of the younger generation in his day simply wanted to prepare the youth for what would come. That scripture reading touched on growing old, missed opportunity increased insecurity, crime-ridden neighborhoods, cheapened values and pre-occupation with death. Even though that plagued the younger generation of his day, those same troubles afflict the now generation. Speaking of the “now generation”, from what do young people of today need to lift themselves? First on the list. Especially for Black youth is self-hatred and low selfesteem. One has but to compare and contrast the songs and music of the 60’s to those of the 90’s, and those of today. Look at the R & B groups in the 1960’s. Most of them were named after the best—The Four Tops, the Impressions, Junior Walker and the All Stars. Stevie Wonder, and even Sly and the Family Stone. On the other hand, have you noticed some of the names of most popular groups today? Niggers with an Attitude, Public Enemy, Ice Cube, Geto Boys and Naughty by Nature. Dome of the sick songs our children listen to repeatedly on radio are entitled, “Freak Me’, Six Feet Deep, Knockin Da Boots, “Cop Killers, X-tra Naked, Slow and Sexy, Nice N Wild, and Hard or Smooth. The music videos by young Black American artists are dominated by themes of death and violent sex. Young people love yourself enough to lift yourselves from the gutter garbage. Look at Luke 10:27 records a young adult’s response to a young man seeking eternal life. The real meaning in life is found in the fulfillment of the greatest commandment “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and all your soul, and with all your strength and with your entire mind and your neighbor as yourself. You see, loving God with one’s whole self lifts that person to lofty living. Young people there are no way you can love God with your feelings, spirit, energy and intellect and not rise above our seemingly hopeless and sinful times in which we live. Loving yourself empowers you to lift others as well as yourself.

cclesiastes 12:1 tells young people to remember their creator in the days of their youth before the days of trouble come, and years draw near them. Loving yourself rightly begins by loving your creator. We must understand that there are legitimate reasons for every person, especially young people, to love God. First of all, we are made in His image and likeness; we carry God’s name brand on our lives. If you think Cross Colours, machine, Umen and Guess are the most sought after labels and name brands, you better think again. For every time you look into the mirror; every time you express real love to another; every time you think about the Higher power who made you, you’re showing your designer’s label to yourself and the world and Christian Youth are the “Personal Property of the Prince of Peace.” The second reason youth should love God is that we have in our creator – God a friend we can depend on. He’s a friend who knows all about us and still loves and befriends us. All of us have had friends to let us down. We’ve also had friends who faded away due to time and distance. But, God is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. He can never let us down and He cannot fade away no matter what the need, the problem, the time or the place, you can depend on Him. Next is that remembering your creator in your youth makes God happy because it acknowledges His presence in our lives. It recognizes our creator – creature relationship between Him and us, and it reveals our respect and reverence for our maker. In the fourth place, remembering God in your youth inputs divine data into our database for future retrieval. Our God-created a brain that records everything that we see, hear, say, taste, smell, feel and do. Therefore, as we remember God as youth through worship, Sunday school, scripture, memorization, daily and nightly prayers. Singing in the choir, learning about God through our families and so on. We are storing vital survival information and inspiration to help us as we grow and mature. Remember that loving yourself rightly begins by loving your creator. It is my prayer that our youth will learn Novem ernot 19forget , 201to0read our Bibles, and Letbus to love themselves enough to lift themselves and others amidst seemingly hope- may God bless you REAL GOOD and may less times. My young friends, tough times He ever keep you in His loving care. geNe TUNer

Advice Column: Ask Karen Hollie Reject a Fearful Spirit "The peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus" geralDINe DaVIDsoN-Hooker

(Philippians 4:7).


ne of Satan's favorite tools is to get you to question "What if?" Dedicated Christians get

trapped into hoarding because they fear the "what if" of retirement, disability, unemployment, or economic collapse. Obviously, God wants us to consider these things and even plan for them, within reason. But when fear dictates to the point that giving to God's work is hindered, foolish risks are assumed and worry becomes the norm, rather than the exception. Then contentment is impossible. Christians must consciously reject

this attitude of fear. To claim God's victory, it may be necessary for you to face your fear. If your fear is a lack of surplus, it may be necessary to live without it in order to conquer that fear. But remember above all else, "My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:19).

here is a portion of the model prayer recorded in Matthew chapter 6, that should never be omitted from any prayer we utter and that is, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”. PasTor ClareNCe When that will is HeNDersoN done, peace and good will and other blessings naturally follow. Many of our prayers are so out of line with the will of God and what is best for our own lives that this is the only way they can be justified. Jesus himself, prayed in agony in the garden of Gethsemane, just before his crucifixion cried, “Oh my Father, if thy be willing, remove this cup from me, nevertheless, not my will but, Thine be done” Luke 22:42. And because he was willing to do the father’s will we have redemption.

Notes From Union Hope

From the Mount

“Worship Inspires Service”1Tim.5:18, 17-22was our Church School lesson, the lesson began with instructions on how we should talk to one another in the body of Christ. For those elD lloyD T. that were raised in MorgaN a different generation this lesson was taught at home. We were taught to speak to older people with respect. We were taught that we are brothers and sisters and should treat each other as such. Paul gave instruction on who the church had an obligation to help among them, widows who were childless and in need of help. Timothy was to teach these things to the church, some remember when this was life as we knew it. Paul taught that the pastor who worked hard should be paid well, especially those that preach and teach, but

they should not be money driven. Our Morning message was delivered by Pastor L.T.Morgan from the subject “Is the service and worship that you offer God really your best?”Mal 1:13-14. Israel had a up and down relationship with God they often forgot that they were who they were because God chose them. In the text Israel had become common with God as many Christians do and began to offer God animals that was sick and missing limbs as a sacrifice. God said “You have shown contempt by offering defiled sacrifices on my altar.”Then you ask, 'How have we defiled the sacrifices?' "You defile them by saying the altar of the LORD DESERVES no respect. When you give blind animals as sacrifices, isn't that wrong? And isn't it wrong to offer animals that are crippled and diseased? Try giving gifts like that to your governor, and see how pleased he is!" I ask you dear reader “is the service and worship that you offer God your best? He deserve nothing less. Be blessed

BaRBeRshOp Talk wiTh leON simON


e’re in the middle of track season, and last week at the Carter Shoot out I was pleasantly surprised. I saw the Roosevelt leoN sIMoN Mustangs look like the dominate team that spoiled a lot of people for a lot of years. Coached by Bruce Davis, Davis himself is a big part of that storied history of Roosevelt. Bruce attended Baylor and played for the Cleveland Browns. Mr. Davis is definitely qualified. Roosevelt was once one of the most successful and proud 5A programs in the country is now 3A. But being a 3A school doesn’t diminish the pride that this inner-city school on Bonneview exudes. While watching track practice yesterday I was joined by one of Roosevelt’s favorite sons – Roy Martin. Roy, known by many as Robot, was an Olympian as a junior in 1984. At the State Track Meet in 1985, Roy ran the fastest 200M dash ever by a high school athlete. The stadium clock had him at 19.75, and since he didn’t go to Texas, that time gets slower every year. I think it’s up to 20.1 or something to that affect still a national record. Davis and Martin are just a small part of the Star studded alums of ‘Velt, without using the rest of this article naming them all I’ll throw out a few for those of you that are not familiar.

John Jefferson( Green Bay, San Diego), Jeff Fuller ( 49ers), Richmond Webb ( Miami Dolphins), and a little closer to home Kevin Williams ( Dallas Cowboys), Aaron Wallace ( Raiders). Thats about 10 Super Bowl rings. Today’s Mustangs to name a few Toddrick Young, Avonta Shaw, and seniors Jason Holland and Xavier Hicks on the anchor. That the 4x100 and 4x 200meter relay team, those two relays would be among the favorite if the state championships were held today. I believe the Mustangs under Davis are laying a foundation to bring this program back to where it was, when Roosevelt would be the drawing card even when they had colleges there. At the State track meet this year in the 3A Division we should see a familiar battle between Roosevelt and Dallas Madison for the Championships. Madison brings some history with them also. The Pitts boys Donovan and Tim, Byron Sweat, but that’s another article for anther time. On another front. A little birdie told me that one of DISD’s well known coaches took the buy out. If that little birdie is correct that would leave one of DISD’s most popular programs without a head football coach and athletic director. Another note… Keep your eye open. If you think there are too many schools in Oak Cliff, wait until next year when they re-open Wilma Hutchins. It wouldn’t surprise me to see some schools not have enough boys to fill a football team. And we’re still trying to open buildings. Buildings

All three organizations had as their objective to improve the lot of blacks in Texas. The Texas Centennial was indeed a watershed event for African Americans.

Mountain View College: The Best Kept Secret in Higher Education... continued from page 4 • Accounting and Financing • Sales and Marketing • Human Resources Management • Business Law • Business Planning and Development • Operations Management Ten (10) Electives which include: • Technology • Social Marketing • Customer Service • Sales Management • Business Tax • Nonprofit Formation and Management • Contracts and Bids • Customer Service • Franchise 101 Since finding out about this “gem” called Mountain View College, nestled in Dallas’ Southern sector, at a recent Entrepreneurial Workshop at Mountain View College, we decided to talk to the man at the helm of Mountain View College, none other than President Felix A. Zamora. We asked President Zamora a few questions about Mountain View College and what he attributes to its success. President Zamora says that bringing together a representative group of faculty and staff to put a strategic plan in place that mapped out a process for improving the way the college interacted with the community. We had been doing a good job, but we just needed to be more responsive in order to meet our community where they are, which in turn helped them find the resources the college had to offer. When asked how the county bond funds enhanced the campus or the college’s affects on the community in which it serves, President Zamora told us that the bond funds enabled them to add an additional 120,000 square feet to the college which increased space by 33%. “More importantly, we added a new student services building in order to better accommodate a growing student body, a new science building to house updated science labs and technology, and a new nursing education laboratory so that we could add an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) Degree in Nursing. We added a new

april 1, 2011

economic and workforce development building so that we could help local companies address training needs within the community. In that same building, we are evolving an entrepreneurship college which will infuse our community into looking at a small business as a real alternative to working for someone else. We also built a 2,000 seat sports facility that will accommodate soccer and football games.” The new Economic Workforce, Business Incubation and Entrepreneurial College is a very impressive part of Mountain View College, and since it is new, we wanted to know what the outlook is for the college. He told us that they intend to support local and small businesses by providing opportunities to start and build their business. “We hope to provide an ever increasing array of business development opportunities,” said President Zamora. For students who want to move on to four year institutions, Mountain View has partnered with UNT Dallas, with UTA Arlington and other major universities in the Metroplex. We asked President Zamora to tell us a little bit about the high school within the Mountain View College environment. He said, “The high school is named the Trinidad ‘Trini’ Garza Early College High School. In only its fifth academic year (2010 – 2011), the Early College High School (ECHS) currently serves 400 students and has become a model for academic success with other ECHS around the nation. The school is rated ‘Exemplary’ by the Texas Education Agency, ECHS not only prepares students for college, but immerses them in college-level courses and the culture of a college. MVC ECHS graduates leave high school with a high school diploma as well as an Associate’s degree, or credit hours transferable to a four-year university of their choosing.” And lastly, President Zamora shared with us special facts and statistics regarding the college’s accomplishments. He was happy to share with us that Mountain View has another record high enrollment. Current enrollment for spring 2011 is 8,718 students with 60%

of the students returning from the fall of 2010 to spring of 2011. “The economic work force is what we are focusing on out here. We are the largest feeder to the University of North Texas at Dallas,” said President Felix A. Zamora. “We are 7,000 strong and still growing. We are getting attention for doing great things in the Southern sector. We are in the process of a huge campaign to complete college, part of President Obama’s initiative to grow more small businesses.” President Zamora also states, “We want to take the students that come to us and build the pipeline for even better things; we want to create a larger funnel.”
