It’s the elephant in the room. Abortion affects the lives of millions. In Black America it is a statistical fact that 20 million lives of black children have been lost to abortion. As the battle for the scantity of life and personhood wages, I want to use this show to address the elephant in the room with my two distinguished guests.

Dr. Ayiti Jean-Pierre is determined to travel back to the homeland that is her namesake, Ayiti–or “Haiti,” as it is known in English. When she was seven-years-old, Ayiti and her family were forced to flee the beautiful island to escape the political turmoil and poverty that was beginning to bring misery to the Haitian people.
She moves back to Haiti to provide volunteer medical services with a Christian Medical Missionary Group. Ayiti meets an English missionary, Pastor Jude Patterson. Pastor Jude falls in love with her. Immediately, he pursues her, but Ayiti cannot get over the fact that he is white, seven years younger, and of a completely different cultural background.
Battling issues regarding race, spiritual beliefs, and age differences, the relationship between Ayiti and Jude is tested to the limits. Will Ayiti put aside her preconceptions and bitterness to give Jude a chance? Will she come to learn the truth about her spiritual beliefs and accept Jesus? Will Jude win Ayiti’s heart?

Hugs make the world go around. I’ll be the first to admit that. When a master storyteller recently shared a fascinating article about people who are “skin-hungry”. That means, those who lack the personal, intimate touch of another human being. It is not a sexual thing as much as an interpersonal connection. The article discussed how some criminals were affected psychologically by the lack of human touch when placed in solitary confinement.
We would go further and look back to Genesis 2:18 “And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.”
However, as this article postulates, people are becoming less and less interconnected. Human touch, connectivity is an essential part of being human. We need each other. As the article states in it’s introduction: “As we live in an increasingly technology-focussed, socially disconnected world, we’re touching each other much less than before. But what does an absence of touch do to a person?”
Is it solely due to our dependence on technology that has caused this trend? Is it more? Join me for our continuing series with RD Palmer and I. You can call in at 929-477-1965 and press 1 to be live on air. Or, click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/s/11419743
One day, about several months ago, in a Facebook group not so far away, an author posted this:
… I think it would be cool if someone organized a speculative anthology where each story is based on one of the 9 Beatitudes in Matthew or one of the 4 woes of Luke. 13 authors, each assigned/choosing one of those verses, expressing it in fantastical story form…
That author, CW Briar, had created a firestorm.
Immediately, interest piqued. Christian authors and readers jumped on the bandwagon on this wonderful idea. Of course! Why hadn’t many of us thought of it before? General online excitement ensured as authors clamored for a chance to be one of the ones selected for this project. After all, most of us could recite them forwards and backwards.
But had we ever had a chance to explore them in a deeper context? What better way to do that than through the universal language of story?

ANNE OF GREEN GABLES meets THE DA VINCI CODE
Daniela Rose, a preteen modern-day Indiana Jones, must come to terms with her destiny, avoid getting committed to the psychiatric ward, endure nightmares about a mysterious boy, deal with the mean girls at school, and save the world by hunting through the past to uncover clues hidden before the dawn of time.
After her thirteenth birthday, Daniela must juggle school, caring for a sick father and solving an ancient puzzle that will protect her friends—and enemies—from a dark, biblical-sized force that seeks to eradicate humans from Earth.
Will Daniela give up and stop fighting for the kindred spirit her heart is destined for—leaving him unprotected and doomed to certain death—or will she rise to the challenge and meet her destiny head-on.
If you knew your ending, how would you have lived your beginning?

In a couple of days, we’ll be celebrating the 4th of July which heralds the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The powerful words of this historical document, we hear the words of freedom, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
When I first started this show six years ago, I wanted to give Christian authors a platform for them to be able to tell the world about their books. Over the years I’ve had the honor of showcasing all sorts of books, from Christian authors from all over the planet. Imagination abound. Messages of faith inspire. Tales of coming from the dark into the marvelous light have made their way through these years.
Join me as we look back over the last six years with my returning guest co-host and contributor, Rachel Rossano. We’d love to hear from you! Call in at 646-668-8485, and press 1 to be live on air.
