Jesus Saves Ministries founder Rev. Angela Lee Price will be a featured speaker at the Brain Storms Uniting Common Threads Survivor/Family/Caregiver Conference, Saturday, March 6th, at Baptist Hospital East, Louisville, Kentucky. She will share, in the Patient Advocacy session between 2:00-3:00 PM, a family member's perspective on Stroke, the third leading cause of death among African Americans. "After my husband's stroke, the Lord placed it upon my heart to alert as many people as I could through radio and the internet about the warning signs and risk factors for stroke. Too many African Americans are dying needlessly from poor eating habits, and lack of exercise, but Jesus said, 'I come that you may have life and have it more abundantly,'" states Min. Price.

At that time, she and Bill both worked on air in the afternoon and morning drive slots respectively. In the absence of her husband, Angela moved to morning drive and teamed up with the Power to End Stroke Initiative to help raise awareness of stroke within the African American communities.

Angela kept Bill’s radio audience up to date on his recovery, interviewing medicals experts such as Dr. Kerri Remmel and Dr. Adwale Troutman, as well as representatives from the American Stroke Association and Baptist East Hospital staff. She distributed materials on stroke, and diabetes at personal appearances and solicited ambassadors for the Power to End Stroke Initiative. She has written articles on stroke in the Jesus Saves Newsletter, her bi-monthly publication and on her blog. In 2008, Angela received the American Stroke Association Inspiration Award. In 2009, she participated in the Kentucky and Southern Indiana Extravaganza Tasting Event honoring Bill Price.

Love the Skin You're In!

Since we are in black history month, I have posted some comments on the Jesus Saves Social Network in our Sunday school/Bible Study group, Route 66 about the Shulammite Woman in Song of Solomon relative to her race and how she saw herself.

This beautiful woman not only loves her man and isn't afraid to show it, but also she loves herself and the skins she's in. Everytime I read the Song of Solomon in the Bible, I want to say, "Love the Skin You're In!" I think that is a message that gets missed oftentimes, especially when 15 out of 22 black children choose a white doll as more beautiful over a black doll in a 2006 remake of the Clarke Doll Study. In fact, Psalm 139:14 states, "...I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are thy works....!

Here's a portion of what I wrote in reply to Steve Jones' comments to the post "Are You In the Bible?"

"Pastor Jeffrey Johnson of Eastern Star Church in Indianapolis states on page 30 in his book entitled, Song of Solomon, Love, Sex, and Relationships, "You may be wondering what celebrating has to do with Song of Solomon 1:5. Look at how this woman celebrates. She says, 'I am black and beautiful." This is a Shulammite woman, a Black African sister who has checked herself out and said, 'I am fine! I really look good!' She begins to celebrate her identity and God's creativity in her life. You need to do that."

Further Johnson states on page 33 of Song of Solomon, Love, Sex, and Relationships, "The Beloved in this story also recognizes her beauty as a black woman. She says: 'I'm Black and beautiful (NRSV). I love that. Some versions say, 'I'm black but comely' or 'yet lovely.' In the original Hebrew, the translation is not necessarily: 'I am black, but beautiful.' As the New Revised Standard Version translates it, she is not saying 'I am beautiful in spite of my blackness'; instead, she is saying, 'I am beautiful because of my blackness. I am conscious of my beauty, and my beauty lies in my blackness.' This is difficult to grasp for some of us African Americans because we grew up in a racist nation which tried to convince us that anything black or dark had something wrong with it."

Read the Song of Songs, the Song of Solomon and I think you will agree with makers of Oil of O'Lay when they say, "Love the skin you're in!"

African-American history and Jesus -- Is Jesus relevant for the black community?

By: Charles Gilmer
Looking at African-American history, is Jesus still relevant for African Americans today? What are the common misconceptions concerning Jesus that have been leveled at the black community?

When you hear the name "Jesus" what images and thoughts come to mind?
Devotion to Jesus has been a large part of the African-American experience. The black church has been and continues to be a powerful force in the African-American community. But many are questioning the propriety of African Americans following Jesus. Should we, as black people, follow this Jesus?

Some suggest that Jesus was a foreign deity forced upon our forefathers and mothers. Others suggest that worshiping Jesus has been nothing more than a psychological narcotic to deaden the pain of our oppressed existence. Still others contend that our forefathers' worship of Jesus was merely a mask for the expression of more ancient religious practices, a cover for the practice of "traditional" African religions.

How should we view that influence as we approach a new chapter of our history? Much is being said, yet is what you've heard the truth? Let's, you and I, examine some of these perspectives about African Americans and Christianity.

The best historical record of Jesus' life is found in the Bible. One of the most frequently posed challenges is directed at this book.

Join the discussions in the Celebrating Black History Group on the Jesus Saves Social Network, take quizzes and win great books, gospel music and more!

Black History: Haste Has No Blessing

By: Rev. Angela Lee Price
Proverbs 2: 1-7 (V1) “My child, listen to me and treasure my instruction. (V2) Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. ( V3) Cry out for insight and understanding.
(V4) Search for them as you would for lost money or hidden treasure. (V5) Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God. (V6) For the Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth comes knowledge and understanding.
(V7) He grants a treasure of good sense to the godly.” (NLT)

Our society has become conditioned to want things quick, fast, and in a hurry. We give alittle and expect to receive a lot. However, an African proverb says,“Haste has no blessing.” Proverbs chapter 2 makes it clear that the“quick-fast-and-in-a-hurry” and the “give-a-little-receive-a lot” philosophies of life are not the ways of God.

Some things, such as gaining wisdom, knowledge, and understanding require considerable time, trust, prayer, and effort. In the opening verses of Proverbs chapter 2, we learn to “listen,” “treasure,” “tune,” “concentrate,” “cry out,” and “search,” for insight and understanding (vs. 1-4). We are to apply serious attention and devotion to the task. We are to give our all to knowing who God is. The Bible says when you do this, “then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord, and you will gain knowledge of God. (V5)”

Are you giving more of yourself to the God who has given His all for you? Listen and treasure divine instruction. Tune your ears to wisdom. Concentrate on God’s Word. Cry out continually in prayer. Search the scriptures daily. The Lord grants knowledge, wisdom and understanding (V 6-7) to those who diligently search for it, and that is a treasure of good sense (V 7), a treasure worth seeking.

Remember, it is not Mohammad, Buddha, Confucius, nor New Age that saves. Jesus saves!

Kirk Franklin Assembles Gospel Music All-Stars for An Inspiring Song to Aid Relief Efforts In Haiti

(New York, New York – January 21, 2009) As gospel music artists gathered in Nashville, Tennessee to celebrate the biggest and brightest at the 25th Stellar Awards, they also came together for a higher purpose. With the recent tragic earthquake in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Kirk Franklin along with other award-winning gospel music artists gathered on Friday, January 15 at Quad Studios in Nashville to lend their voices to “Are You Listening,” a song they all hope will inspire those devastated as well as raise much needed funds for the rebuild efforts their lives. Proceeds from the record will be donated to charity.

The star-studded list of performing artists includes (listed in alphabetical order) Yolanda Adams; Jeremy Camp; Shirley Caesar; Dorinda Clark-Cole; Natalie Grant; Fred Hammond; Tamela & David Mann; Mary Mary; Donnie McClurkin; Bishop Paul S. Morton; J. Moss; Smokie Norful; Marvin Sapp; Karen Clark-Sheard; Kiera "KiKi" Sheard; BeBe Winans; CeCe Winans and Marvin Winans along with other gospel artists featured in choir including Shari Addison; Kathy Taylor Brown; John Gray; Bishop Darryl Hines; Stephen Hurd; Karima Kibble; Judith McAllister; Nicole C. Mullen; Jessica Reedy; The Neville Sisters; Troy Sneed; Micah Stampley; Melinda Watts and Brian Courtney Wilson.

“All the artists associated with the project donated their talent and gifts for this project,” says song and project producer Kirk Franklin. “This initiative is so important because while we are asking America to give we know that many are giving sacrificially. The people of Haiti are very spiritual people with an unwavering faith and belief in God and still count The Lord as the main source and provider. We will continue to pray and stand with them. We hope this song will bring much needed support and awareness in an effort to raise funds in the near and long-term future.”

Shawn Brown, Co-Founder of Youthful Praise Dead at 43

BlackGospelBlog today from Urban Roundup:

NORWALK - One of the local legends of Gospel Music and an internationally recognized top songwriter, Shawn Brown died Sunday night (Feb. 1) after a long illness.

Brown was born January 29, 1967 and died just days after his 43rd birthday. His manager Germane Miller was working with him on a number of great projects and is committed to maintaining his legacy.

Brown is best known as the co-founder of the popular group Youthful Praise. He and local singer-songwriter James "JJ" Hairston started Youthful Praise or "YP" as it is called.

Founded in 1992, the 35-member choir was birthed out of their home church, Cathedral of Praise in Bridgeport, Connecticut, where the group remains as one of the church's choirs. As their ministry grew, they began singing background for artists such as Destiny's Child, Pastor Shirley Caesar, and SWV, to name a few.

In 2001, YP released their debut album, Awesome God. The mid-tempo title track became an instant hit among church and college choirs across America, and propelled the album to #13 on the Billboard Gospel Albums chart. Additionally, it earned two Stellar Award nods in 2003 for Choir of the Year and Contemporary Choir of the Year, a Soul Train Award nomination for Gospel Artist of the Year, the Gospel Music Workshop of America Excellence Award nomination for Choir of Year and the Gospel Truth Magazine Award for Contemporary Choir of the Year.

The 2004 release of Thank You For The Change continued in the same stride with songs "Up There" and "He Rose." However, it was Live: The Praise, The Worship, released in 2005 that put YP on the map. Producing the anthem, "Incredible God, Incredible Praise," YP received two Stellar Award nominations, peaked at #6 on Billboard's gospel singles chart, and was also #27 on Billboard's hottest gospel songs of 2006.

Known nationally for his contemporary hits, Brown credited the legendary songwriter Thomas Whitfield and his contemporaries V. Michael McKay and Richard Smallwood.

Brown told GospelFlava, "It's one thing to write or be a director. It's another to be able to capture what you hear. Understand that as a writer, you hear in your mind exactly what you want to achieve, where you want the sound, when you want it. And if you can get the choir to sound the way you have it in your mind, then that's a good director."

The family is making funeral arrangements and TBGB will provide additional information as it becomes available. "
