THE CHAOS, THE CHALLENGE,

THE CHURCH! BY BISHOP MARJORIE HOLT, PH. D. PUBLISHER

By Interfaith Gazette Staff CHAOS is inevitable. However, there is an evidentiary belief by some Theologians, Sociologists, and Theorists, that CHAOS can also be controlled. Varying sub-topics suggest that when it is controlled that it is subject to directed and intended results.

CHAOS however, is defined by many as: Complete disorder, random confusion, disarray, disorganization, mayhem, bedlam, pandemonium, havoc, turmoil, tumult, commotion, disruption, upheaval, uproar, maelstrom, mess, shambles, free for all, anarchy, lawlessness, entropy and

more! However, just my thought, some of these meanings seem more relevant than others looking from a panoramic view of the Church of today. Yet some CHAOS THEORIES suggest that it is the study of predeterministic, not random, spontaneous behaviors in some systems. Regardless of what is thought, believed, practiced, and or

acted out routinely or spontaneously, CHAOS exists in and among our churches, evidenced by the lack of planned, organized, futuristic methods from an organizational perspective. The CHURCH is changing in several ways. To not have a planned strategy See THE CHURCH, on page 3

The black man's dilemma in America is that he is caught between who he is, and where he is. Africa is his heritage, where he came from; but America is his experience; where he is. His heritage says that he is an African. His experience says that he is an American. Unfortunately, he has an American mind in an African body. His mind takes him to American communities, schools, and colleges, but his African body is rejected. His American mind tells him that he is an American. However, a diner is not a diner simply because he is sitting at the table. He is a diner only if he is eating. He is, therefore, torn between his African heritage and his American experience. He was brought here against his will, and those who willed to come here rejected him. This is his dilemma. As Africans, we preserved many of our sacred ceremonies, even as we took on our American expediencies. Our singing and dancing are uniquely African. Nobody can sing, dance, and yes, preach like us. Although most of us profess the Christian faith, and give our allegiance to Jesus Christ, we do so through the eyes of our African Heritage. We are Africans, and must not be ashamed of it.

For most of my early life, I attended schools for the descendants of Africans, where I was welcomed by a black principal, and black teachers, who lived among us. They attended church with us, were members of the Parent Teacher Association that was governed by men and women of African descent. After I attended black elementary, high school, and a two year junior college, my American mind took me to a white senior college, Abilene Christian College, where my African body was rejected. So, like my other African brothers and sisters, I found myself "Standing At The Edge of Night," Looking for "A Brighter Day," "Without a Guiding Light." Some of my brothers are "Rich men " and some are "Poor Men," Some of us are "Young and Restless," Some of us live in the " Pent House," and some of us live in the "Little House on the Prairie, "always trying to keep up with the "Jeffersons."

Whether we are rich men or poor men, whether we live in the "Pent House" or the little house on the prairie, or are trying to keep up with the Jeffersons, we have only one "life to live." And we must always "Tell the truth or pay the Consequences." And the truth is, we are all somebody, made in the image and after the likeness of God, by whatever name we call Him. Jesus said to His Jewish brothers, "Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free," And only the truth shall set us all free, whatever our color, or creed, race, or religion. There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us that it does not behoove any of us to talk about the rest of us." Floyd Rose Senior Servant Serenity Church

Black Churches, Powerful Cultural Forces, Set Their Sights on Food Security

Heber Brown during a tour of Browntown Farms. Credit: BCFSN/PRI On a warm weekend in early May, Reverend Heber Brown of Pleasant Hope Baptist Church in Baltimore led a delegation of his members on a tour of Browntown Farms in Warfield, Virginia and the Coalition for Healthier Eatingfood hub in Bethel, North Carolina. For Brown, the founder of the Black Church Food Security Network (BCFSN), the day trip was a concrete step toward solidifying strong relationships between black residents of East Coast cities and black farmers in the rural South.

Members of Pleasant Hope Baptist Church in Baltimore work to build a sustainable, community-centered food system anchored by black churches and black food producers and led by those most directly affected by economic inequity. Credit: BCFSN/PRI “We explored how we can help one another, as we’re impacted by food inequity in similar and distinct ways,” says Brown. The ultimate goal is to build a sustainable, community-centered food system anchored by black churches and black food producers and led by those most directly affected by economic inequity. In both places, access

The Church from page 1 of remaining vital, relevant, and enduring, it faces scheduled CHAOS and potential failure, which contributes greatly to the Pastoral Statistics that reflect daily changes. THE CHALLENGE is real. Many feel that the Church’s CHALLENGE comes to serve as a “warning” prior to the after shock of what appears to be on the verge of the rise that will eminently take place. I believe that no matter the circumstances, the Church will survive the vicissitudes of its changing face. If we stay in the word, we can relate to the 7 churches in Asia Minor, a Roman Province, that had different descriptions of their existence. And fortuitously speaking, (happening by accident, not design), each had a reference to behaviors that were real and routinely practiced by Believers. There were seven spirits represented in them. Revelations 2 - 3; The Church of EPHESUS was called the LOVELESS Church. The Church in SMYRNA was busy but PERSECUTED. The Church in PERGAMOS was COMPROMISING. The Church in THYATIRA was the CORRUPT Church. The Church in SARDIS was the DEAD Church. The Church in PHILADELPHIA was FAITHFUL. Even though each had different descriptions of their behaviors, each was warned of the outcomes. My question today is if we ask

WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE OF THE CHURCH, how would we respond? THE CHURCH will thrive. However, I would like to believe that we are facing DIFFUSION, which is the spreading of something, a light from a light source evenly so as to reduce glare and harsh shadows. For me, this is a powerful description of where I believe the CHURCH exists today. Because of who I have been called to be, I can and never will give up on anything that God spoke into existence. His word shall and will continue to live on. Matthew 16: 17 -18 speaks emphatically of the position of the church. “ UPON THIS ROCK I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH AND THE VERY GATES OF HELL SHALL NOT PREVAIL AGAINST IT”! Now it leads me to ask this question: What is ROCK that our churches are built upon? If DIFFUSION is related to LIGHT, how much LIGHT is the Church spreading from what it already has or does not have. It’s properties move from a higher concentration to a lower concentration that is designed to increase its effects. You be the respondent and conclude if you will, what is the weight of the properties that we use! Stay tuned for PART B of this submission. By Bishop Marjorie Holt, Ph. D. Publisher

to healthy, fresh, affordable food can be challenging due to what Brown and other activists call “food apartheid.” “We feel that apolitical and ‘colorblind’ approaches to addressing food inequity fly in the face of the statistics,

Papa John Has Nothing on Planned Parenthood's Margaret Sanger Why Hasn't NAACP Denounced Racist Comments by Planned Parenthood's Founder? MONTCLAIR, N.J.—NAACP religiously monitors the world for racist comments made by dignitaries, especially elected officials and organizations opposing the Democrat Party. The bias demonstrated is consistent with the decline of relevancy on issues adversely affecting the very people they were created to protect. When informed and genuine advocates of the African American community see the devastating effects of eugenic policies perpetrated upon people-of-color, then learn the origins and racist comments as well as practices of the leading abortion provider Planned Parenthood, they are left baffled at the silence of America's most prestigious defenders of civil rights. Let me enumerate some undeniable and inconvenient truths: 1.) 1,786 African American children are killed each day by abortion. 2.) Abortion is systemic and deliberate and the leading provider of abortion in America is Planned Parenthood. 3.) 52% of All African American pregnancies end in abortion Margaret Sanger, the founder and chief facilitator of the eugenic and systemic plan of abortion. She was an avowed White Supremist and was quoted as saying, "... colored people are human weeds and need to be exterminated... reckless breeders... spawning... human beings who never should have been born..."

COLUMBUS – Secretary of State Jon Husted has announced July as “Game On Ohio” Month. Throughout July, Ohio Business Profile will highlight the major and minor league sports teams that are doing business and growing the economy across the Buckeye State.

“Ohio is rich in sports history and we all have fond memories of our favorite teams,” Secretary Husted said. “Whether it’s a World Series in Cincinnati, our Buckeyes winning the National Championship, or the Cleveland Cavaliers capturing the NBA title, we can

all call to mind some of Ohio’s special sports moments.” Teams profiled this month include: Akron RubberDucks (Akron, Ohio) - a Double-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians. In 2013, the franchise underwent a name change as the Akron Aeros became the Akron RubberDucks to connect with the city’s long-standing history with the rubber industry. Canton Charge (Canton, Ohio) powered by the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Charge is one of 27 teams in the National Basketball Association’s G League. Games are affordable, fun entertainment for the whole family. Cleveland Browns (Cleveland, Ohio) – one of Ohio’s two National Football League franchises. Established in 1946 as part of the All-America Football Conference, the Browns first entered the NFL in 1950 and have seen a total of 16 alumni enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Cleveland Indians (Cleveland, Ohio) - a charter member of the American League. The Indians have a rich history dating back to 1901. This history includes two World Series Championships in 1920 and 1948, and six American league Pennants. Columbus Blue Jackets (Columbus, Ohio) - Ohio’s only National Hockey League team. The Blue Jackets have been a central Ohio mainstay since entering the NHL in 2000. With a cannon that blasts

after every Jackets’ goal, and a passionate fan base, attending a Blue Jackets game has been nationally recognized as one of the best game day experiences in professional sports. Columbus Clippers (Columbus, Ohio) - a Triple-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians. Playing in the International League, a Clippers game is the quintessential summer activity in Central Ohio because of the fun-filled promotions held at the ballpark all season. Dayton Dragons (Dayton, Ohio) a Class-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds. The Dragons have the longest consecutive game sellout streak in all of North America. They pride themselves on family-affordable entertainment that is great for everyone. FC Cincinnati (Cincinnati, Ohio) - a member of the United Soccer League. The soccer club received big news in 2018 when it was announced they will be joining the ranks of Major League Soccer in 2019. Supporters of the team have worked to create an inclusive atmosphere on game days where friends can be made and everyone is welcome. Lake County Captains (Eastlake, Ohio) - a Class-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians. Games are a fun, affordable summer destination for northeast Ohio families searching for an entertainment option close to home. See GAME ON OHIO, on page 9

Brown. His idea was enthusiastically embraced by the congregation — particularly the seniors — and within a year, the land was tilled and transformed into a productive garden. Now, it produces upwards of 1,100 pounds of produce each year. For the first five years, the food was given away to church and community members. This model wasn’t financially sustainable and now they sell the produce at prices generally lower than local markets. A few years after they started gardening, the city of Baltimore was embroiled in violence and chaos after Freddie Gray died while in police custody. The ensuing uprising, born of routine discrimination and abuse toward low-income black residents at the hands of the Baltimore Police Department, shut down parts of the city, making it difficult for some residents to access food. Food was already the calling card of the Pleasant Hope congregation. When

Food Security from page 3 public policy,” says Brown. “To ignore these realities in [so-called] food justice work is a gross miscalculation at best.” The network provides guidance and ongoing support for people starting gardens on church-owned lands, finding and screening volunteers for those gardens, establishing pop-up produce stands before and after church services in the Baltimore metro area and connecting with black farmers to stock those stands. In this way, BCFSN operates outside of the charity model. Instead, it calls itself a “self-help” organization, intent on challenging what Brown describes as “the harmful and dehumanizing dynamics of initiatives that make it almost a requirement to be in a posture of subservience and dependence on the benevolence of those who have the resources.” Since 2015, BCFSN has expanded to include 10 churches across greater Baltimore and five black-owned farms in Baltimore, North Carolina and Virginia. This year, as interest grows, it’s on track to double those numbers and expand the network into Washington, DC, and Maryland’s Eastern Shore. A GARDEN AND AN UPRISING BCFSN began with a garden and an uprising. Seven years ago, Brown, now 37, was a new pastor at Pleasant Hope Baptist

In 2013, he launched Ohio Business Central, which allows businesses to be created online with a significantly quicker turnaround time. This efficiency allowed the state to cut the fees associated with starting a new business by 21 percent in 2015. That same year, Secretary Husted began a partnership with Google’s “Let’s Put Our Cities on the Map” program making

it easy for new businesses to access free tools to help them get off the ground. Ohio Business Profile was launched in 2011 to highlight Ohio companies that create transformative products, offer outstanding service, contribute to their local communities and employ Ohioans.

Ohioans are encouraged to submit companies they feel are deserving of recognition in future months.
