Making Disciples in an Emerging Culture: Civil Rights Music Reflection

Original post at http://makingdisciples.wordpress.com/2014/11/20/civil-rights-music-reflection/


By. Rev. Dr. Jack Sullivan

Jack SullivanJust caught Peter and Paul, of the famed freedom and justice singing trio Peter, Paul and Mary, on the Tavis Smiley show. Goodness, they were magnificent! It was quite good to hear them sing some of the folk songs of the Civil Rights movement while describing the climate surrounding their music and activism. They have a book out titled, “Peter, Paul and Mary: 50 Years in Life and Song”. As I heard their music and reflections, I became inspired by the fact that the sacred work of Civil Rights and freedom has always featured a multicultural, multifaith cast of bold, risk-taking, visionary people who had the audacity to sing their faith and convictions as they delivered truth to power. While our contemporary climate does reveal amazing levels of progress since the 1960s, the rivers and streams of everyday life continue to reveal toxic amounts of waste products such as hate, bigotry, violence, and discrimination of many forms that poison too many of our environments, physical, political and cultural. I am not altogether sure of the many songs we sing when we gather nowadays, but I sure think it is time for our music to recapture the passion and poetry of the songs of people like Peter, Paul and Mary, Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone and so many others who sang about freedom, justice and peace and therefore provided us with a soundtrack for social progress. During a contemporary era where large segments of society seem to congratulate themselves for not knowing or accepting the histories, values, and aspirations of people who differ from themselves, we need right brain inspiration that can liberate us from the prisons of our linear, individualism-colored world views so that we may actually see ourselves caring for our neighbors by acknowledging then dismantling walls and systems of nullification and selective privilege, by helping each other to succeed, and by learning each other’s story. Now is the time for music that teaches us, transforms us, and then transports us so that we may create earthly places where the long dictatorship of fear comes to an end, where a warm smile can melt glaciers of arrogance, and where people are willing to walk or roll hand-in-hand into a future punctuated by peace, with progress for everybody, and the trivialization of nobody. When we sing songs with these kinds of themes, we open ourselves to God’s still awesome ability to transform the world. I am ready to sing! How about you?

Making Disciples in an Emerging Culture: A Eulogy for a Country Church

IMG_0102After over 200 years in ministry, Rehoboth United Methodist Church near Pulaski, Tennessee will hold its final service this Sunday, June 22, 2014. During the 2014 Tennessee Annual Conference, a cabinet resolution was read and passed closing Rehoboth and reverting the property to the Pulaski District of the Tennessee Annual Conference. According to some sources, in 1810 a group of people near Crosswater Creek, south of Pulaski, joined together and formed Crosswater Methodist Church in a small log cabin, probably someone’s home at the time. One of the first pastors of Crosswater was Aaron Brown, the father of another Aaron Brown who served as Governor of Tennessee. Later, in 1830, the congregation built a new building on higher ground and called their church Rehoboth, after the name of a well dug by Isaac in Genesis 26:22. During the Civil War according to legend and some histrical sources, the church was…

Put your outdoor work in order and get your fields ready; after that, build your house. Proverbs 24:27

First Things First

first things firstWhen you have a lot of cousins and a lot of time during the summer you learn to play different games. You need something that will be interesting to everyone, able to be played as a group, and that can be played anywhere. That takes out a lot of choices, so you begin to make things up. My favorite made up game was called “That’s My.” It was easy to play That’s My, all you had to do was see something and say That’s My before someone else claimed it. For instance, if you were sitting on the porch and saw a nice car go by the first person to…

 Before the Neighbors Arrived: 4 Moments that Define The Neighborhood 

I remember moving from the blogger platform to WordPress and feeling really nervous, like I was moving across country in real life. An old friend, fortunately, allowed me to leave without cleaning up, for she made sure that anyone who arrived after January 1, 2013 was sent to my news digs, thepublicblogger.com. To my knowledge, no one from the blogger medium ran after me, begging me to wait up or stay, so I had zero followers, although I arrived with four months worth of posts in tow. By selecting an appropriate…
