The Black Church and Faith Among African-Americans | Jesus’s Call to Us Inside of His Dying Words

Where in the Word are you today? 

Psalm 23

The Lord Is My Shepherd

A Psalm of David.

23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
    He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
    for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
    your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
    forever.

Today’s Guests

Justin Giboney

Pew did research about the faith among Black Americans. Justin answers some questions related to this research such as, “Why is there a racial divide” and “Why do people go to the church they do?” PBS also has done a series on the Black Church which Justin and Carmen hold up and think about, both of the overdue nature of the work, and how it portrays the theology (worship) the film is observing.

Anthony J Carter – Author of “Dying to Speak”

In “Dying to Speak: Meditations from the Cross” Anthony leads the reader through Jesus’ last words, words that reveal who he is and what he has made us into. He is the Son of God, Messiah, and Shepherd of our souls, and we who believe in him are saved, forgiven, and reconciled. As he teaches and reminds the reader of these things, he helps them find the “implications of Christ’s words for our lives today.” For more information on Anthony’s book, click here.
