Sunday, July 17th
Sunday, our usual basketball prayer and camaraderie. My nephew, Minister Gregory accompanied me all along the way Saturday and also Sunday. Also we did our men's prayer from 8:45am-9:15 and afternoon service 11:30-1pm.
I did two radio programs: 10-10:30am Imhotep WBLS, WBAI respectively, the subject was the both programs hosted by Imhotep and Herb Boyd. We dealt with the following subjects: the passing of Al Vann, Nelson Mandela’s birthday on 7/18 and the challenges of the troubled world and how to deal with stress in today’s world. Very briefly I suggested eight acts: Live Right, Sleep Right, Eat Right, Exercise Right, Sleep Right, Think Right, Laugh Right, and Give Right.
And by giving I explain three things:
1.) Intangible: give encouragement, give praises
2.) Tangible: give contributions, give tithes, offerings
3.) Give Yourself. It has been said that the happiest people and therefore the people without being stressed out are the people who have found a cause to which they could give themselves bigger than themselves and outlive themselves.
Regarding Al Vann I talk about what is in the article and Mandela, I mentioned that I had the honor along with my grandson Minister Lorenzo Daughtry-Chambers participating in the funeral and the burial of the 17 ministers that were officiating. Only Reverend Jesse Jackson and I were the only two non-South Africans.
