The Decision to Handle Rejection

Rev. Manson B. Johnson

The Big Idea: Endurance is the key to achieving challenging goals in life.“Man’s rejection can be God’s direction.  God sometimes uses the rejection of hateful people to move us to a new place or assignment–where we wouldn’t have thought of going on our own.

“Fatherhoodlum” – A Story of Prison, Drugs, and One Man’s Commitment to Overcome His Past and Be a Positive Role Model to His Young Son

Written by Featured Organization on Monday, 03 November 2014 15:52.

Willingboro, NJ (BlackNews.com) — Noted author Michael B. Jackson has released his first fiction novel FatherHoodlum: Chronicles of a Prison Dad. The book is the captivating story of Lamont B. Moody, who grew up in a Newark, New Jersey housing project, during the 50s, 60s, and 70s. At 18-years-old, he made his first trip to prison, and spent the next 10-years in and out of prison for parole violations and new offenses. After parole from prison in 1980, at age 28-years-old, he decided to start a new life 60-miles away from Newark in the city of Trenton, New Jersey. Shortly after parole, Lamont gains custody of his eight-year-old son, LJ, who was getting suspended from school and had also been arrested for burglary, back in Newark. He brings his son to live with him in Trenton. He was determined that LJ would not become just another black boy being primed for the prison system.

The Big Idea: Endurance is the key to achieving challenging goals in life.“Man’s rejection can be God’s direction.  God sometimes uses the rejection of hateful people to move us to a new place or assignment–where we wouldn’t have thought of going on our own.  He must slam the door in our face through rejection to get us to look in another direction.  Then when we get to that new place, we thank God for the rejection rather than being bitter about it.” –Kent Crockett

(StatePoint) Everyone faces setbacks in life. While those personal obstacles can lead to disappointing outcomes, they can also be harnessed into personal motivators, say experts. “When it comes to success, setbacks can be used to motivate one to action, rather than the alternative,” says five-time New York Times best-selling author and journalist Josh Young, who has studied this concept intimately. As author of “And Give up Showbiz?” the new biography of illustrious personal injury lawyer Fred Levin, Young documents the rise and success of someone to whom life handed lemons.

Defeat Voter Suppression: Vote Democratic Vote! Vote! Vote

Written by Peter Grear on Thursday, 30 October 2014 03:15.

Educate, organize and mobilize -- Necessarily, this is my last column before the November 4th General Election.  The outcome of this election and voter suppression is in your hands.  Please continue your outreach by emailing your contacts and posting to your Facebook friends asking and reminding them to vote. It’s important to vote against Republicans because they are the advocates that are committed to voter suppression and preventing Black voters from voting at all.  There is no reason for Black voters to vote for a Republican except in very unusual circumstances.  The one circumstance in this year’s election is the choice for Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court.
