A brother on the Black Orthodox Christians Facebook Page, Colin, must have been digging through the crates when he found this lost gem of hip-hop.
In all honesty, I remember this beat from Schooly D’s “P.S.K” (the father of all “gangsta” rap). In fact, I have heard some of these lines from the mouths of other MCs. There is great value in the original.
Yeah, listening to this right after my Matins prayers has me pumped. Not that I am a sudden expert on Orthodoxy. But, I know enough to know that people would do well to come and see what is Orthodox Christianity and choose a spiritual direction based on prayer, and information. I am sure some will choose not to convert to the faith. But, I see my role is to bring the information to the people and point them to where they can learn more. Since folk are more likely listen to someone who is walking what they are talking, I guess it inevitable that I’d convert.
Piecing together the Desert Fathers Dispatch, I have brother Robert, who is providing me with some good advice about expanding the reach of the blog. I am still forming an e-mail list of every Orthodox Church of every jurisdiction in the state. Some parishes don’t have websites. So, snail mail must be used. I suppose I will create brochures about African saints as well. I hope to meet with other believers and get more suggestions and help. Perhaps February would be good to get people together. Maybe late March. We will see. In the meantime, I am motivated to live the life. That is the best example of the faith and knowledge.
