Moments of Mindfulness: And Nothing Less; Truth is of No Color

Moments of Mindfulness: And Nothing Less; Truth is of No Color

 “The 19th Amendment had first been introduced in Congress in 1871. But Congress’ unwillingness to pass it meant women could only vote in states that had passed woman’s suffrage laws. By 1919 that had come to include 27 states, but not New Hampshire. Granite state women would have to wait for the state of Tennessee to become the 36th state to pass the 19th Amendment before they could vote for President in 1920.”[1]And there is so much more to do! Join me in a fascinating, energizing, educational, and empowering discussion about how African American women participated in the battle to…

Moments of Mindfulness: Pandemic Myth Busting with Dr. Valda Crowder

Moments of Mindfulness: Pandemic Myth Busting with Dr. Valda Crowder

“You can call it a germ, you can call it the flu, you can call it a virus. You know, you can call it many different names. I’m not sure anybody even knows what it is.” – President Trump- Why do some people get really sick, but others do not? Are the models too optimistic or too pessimistic? Exactly how transmissible and deadly is the virus? How many people have actually been infected? How long must social restrictions go on for? Why are so many questions still unanswered?[1] The confusion partly arises from the pandemic’s scale and pace. Worldwide, at least 3.1 million people have been infected in less…

Moments of Mindfulness: An audio meditation experience with Sherrell Moore-Tucker

Moments of Mindfulness: An audio meditation experience with Sherrell Moore-Tucker

During the pandemic, have you been feeling intimate with physical, mental, emotional uncertainty and unrest? It seems that everything that can be shaken is shaking, where noise, angry noise appears to be drowning out laughter and love. I found I have been grieving the loss of power over my thoughts, my movements, my expectations, my finances, my future, my everything. So, I created Moments of Mindfulness as an emotional and spiritual band-aide for the hurt we are collectively feeling. All of us at the table have permission to find the stillness that allows authenticity and vulnerability to rise above the noise. We are going…

Moments of Mindfulness: How do you spell HOME with Gale Morgan of The Mather?

Moments of Mindfulness: How do you spell HOME with Gale Morgan of The Mather?

How have you changed how you feel about HOME in the last six months? During the pandemic, HOME has become forever energy posing as classrooms, daycare, science labs, offices, churches, gyms, potential technological nightmares, playgrounds, and hospitals all at the same time. Physical space that used to feel sufficient, and often spacious, now feels like “not enough.” Nursing homes have necessarily become barriers to physical expressions of love and a barometer of how successfully our country is winning the pandemic war. The powerlessness of the season has motivated feelings of concern about the future of the housing market, the economy,…

Moments of Mindfulness: “Love in Action” with the late Congressman John Lewis and NPR’s Krista Tippett

Moments of Mindfulness: "Love in Action" with the late Congressman John Lewis and NPR's Krista Tippett

First  Corinthians 13: 4-8 says “Love is patient and kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing but rejoices in the truth. … Love never ends”. Wikipedia says, “Love is considered to be a positive and negative: with its virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection, as “the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another”; and its vice representing human moral flaw, akin to vanity, selfishness, and egotism, Author Glennon Doyle Melton expresses love as a message from God, and I quote:  “When you were born, I put a piece of me in…

Reflect, Restore, and Reposition with Brandon Cosby of OAR

JAIL is a result, event-driven, choice involved, power stripping, a visible shift. However, within the jail cell inside each inmate is the power of transformation.

Reflect, Restore, and Reposition with author Margery Leveen Sher

“America is an idea. It is a culture of tolerance. All different colors and religions can live in coexistence. All can contribute positively. This idea must be a leader in the world.

Reflect, Restore, Repositioning attitudes towards health as we age with Dr. Gloria Ivey Crowe.

Reflect, Restore, Repositioning attitudes towards health as we age with Dr. Gloria Ivey Crowe.

You exercise. You eat right. You’re in pretty good shape for someone your age. Still, getting older can bring on health problems as our bodies change. Not everyone will get them. But some medical conditions become more common or more serious after we get a few decades under our belts. Getting older can be a triple whammy. You lose muscle as you age. That makes it harder to keep the pounds from creeping up. You also become less active. At the same time, your body burns fewer calories for the same physical activities as when you were younger. You probably…

Hope Reflected, Restored, and Repositoned with Meesh Peters and Tijani Musa.

Rob Bell in his 2016 book How to Be Here reflects, “That question the blinking line in your mind or on your mobile device asks is: Who are you to do this? can keep you locked up for years, living in fear and doubt, looking over your fence or your shoulder, comparing yourself with the people around you. But the first word about you is a gift, and you’re here and you’re breathing, and you get to take part in the ongoing and creation of the world. Creation is exhausting and exhilarating and draining and invigorating and it’s also a mystery…
