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.

Voter Suppression: Polls Don’t Vote Vote Early and Volunteer! Volunteer! Volunteer!

Written by Peter Grear on Friday, 10 October 2014 14:50.

Educate, organize and mobilize -- Recent news reports addressing the November 4th  North Carolina, General Election are important but should not be viewed in any way that would cause Black voters to do anything but promote a massive voter turnout.  On October 1, the 4th U S Circuit Court of Appeals voted to allow same day registration and out-of-precinct voting in this year’s election.  Other major voter suppression laws remain in effect and the Republicans have appealed the Court’s decision.  They are still trying to block same day registration and out-of-precinct voting.  They rightfully fear the power of a massive Black voter turnout and we need to deliver one to them.

Voter Suppression: One More Round The Ground Game - Getting Out the Vote

Written by Peter Grear on Thursday, 02 October 2014 17:59.

Educate, organize and mobilize -- Around 30 days and counting, this election season is in the home stretch.  The highest profile race is for US Senate between Kay Hagan and Thom Tillis.  Although most polls show Senator Hagan with a slight lead, without a massive turnout of Black voters and wall to wall Election Day coverage of Black precincts, voter suppression will win the day.  If we don’t turnout, Tillis will win and Republicans will have succeeded in disenfranchising Black voters.
