To God be the Glory

Posted by Al Hathaway Sunday, August 28, 2011 0 comments

"Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name." Psalm 29:2


America's military might and the world's economic resources give some of us a false sense of security. Too many people stand in awe of those with billion-dollar wealth and international fame.

Just imagine, a wisp of air from God can become a mighty hurricane. Alternatively, a tap of his feet can cause an earthquake.

Man may have the equipment to track the trail of a hurricane or measure the force of an earthquake, but they cannot control either of them. They can only hunker down and pray for relief.

I believe everyone should be able to agree that the Lord is due all honor and glory. I subscribe to the belief that all praise should be given to God.

Meditation is a prelude to Contemplation

Posted by Al Hathaway Saturday, August 27, 2011 0 comments

"He went out to the field one evening to meditate." Genesis 24:63


We would all know more, live nearer to God, be better, and grow in grace if we spent more quality time alone. Meditation chews the cud and extracts the real nutriment from the mental food gathered throughout your life's journey. Meditate helps you to find your center and prayerfully your center rests secure in the hands of God. Meditate is a prelude to contemplation. That's where you make a proper assessment of where you are and whose you are. Too many hasty decisions have created problems. Furthermore, many thoughtless acts have led to serious consequences and repercussions. An old song by the Softones would say, "count to ten."

The text informs us to get out of our little corners and to go into the wide expanse of the fields. It is there you see the handy work of the Creator and discern your place in God's world.

Furthermore, recognize that the meditation took place at night. Prior to going to sleep, it permitted an honest assessment of the day, a review of your interactions with people, and a benchmark to determine what did you really accomplish that moved you closer to God.

You should spend at least an hour in walking through the garden of a field in prayer and meditation. Watch the setting of the sun and allow it to excite your sense of awe and wonder. Yes, God is everywhere. He can meet you on a crowded street or even in your little room. Nevertheless, if you desire to go to meet Him. Take the time to meditate in a garden as the evening dusk overcomes the sky.

Baltimore City Fire Department

Posted by Al Hathaway Friday, August 26, 2011 0 comments

Just, a shout out for the firemen who came to my house today with three smoke detectors. They installed them in key areas of the house. I called the 311 number to test the announcement that local firefighters would come to you house to install free smoke detectors. I called the 311 number and within 2o minutes, three fire officials were standing at my door with the detectors under one of their arms. One official had a drill with screws. The third official pointed out the key areas in the house where they should be installed. The whole process took about 15 minutes, and they were gone.

This is the public service residents of Baltimore City deserve and expect.

If you don't have smoke detectors, or know someone who needs them. Call 311 before they are all gone.

Hurricane Irene

Posted by Al Hathaway 0 comments

I invite my friends to meditate on Isaiah 25. The fourth verse reads: "For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones, is as a storm against the wall."

The East Coast is anticipating the effects of Hurricane Irene. Transportation systems are being effected. Plans are being canceled or postponed. Disruption seems to be the order of the day.

Yes, the storm will come. Its effects will be felt, but there is a refuge promised to you and I from the storm.

Seek God in the midst of life's storms and you will find that He provides refuge to those who are weak, weary, and worn.

The Beautiful Rainbow

Posted by Al Hathaway Tuesday, August 23, 2011 0 comments

"The rainbow appears in the clouds." Genesis 9:14


Have you ever seen a rainbow and marveled at its beauty? Upon reflection, I imagine that ever rainbow you have seen emerged from the storm, rains, and clouds that had darkened the sky. It was the dark moments of life that gave way to the promise of the rainbow.

Everyone experiences dark moments. Everyone has storms that enter their lives. If one places their hand in the hand of God, you will discover that the storm will pass over, "hallelujah."

God's rainbow is hung over the cloud of our sins, our sorrows, our disappointments, and our woes to proclaim deliverance. To have a rainbow, you must have the sun, because clouds and drops of rain don't make rainbows unless the sun shines.

Friends, our God, who is as the sun to us, always shines, but we don't always see Him - clouds hide His face, but it does not matter what drops may be falling or what clouds may be threatening. When He shines, there will be a rainbow to assure us of His promise. It is said that when you see the rainbow, the storm is over.

My Baltimore friends can only think they took the Colts, team, logo and all. Well I'm on my way to Indy tomorrow to spend quality time with my family.

I have to hurry back on Thursday, because Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney will be at Union Baptist Church, August 25th beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Mr. NIck Ashford

Posted by Al Hathaway 0 comments

Nick Ashford has passed. I can tell how if you are really old school, because you would remember when we hosted Nick Ashford and Valarie Simpson at the old Hollywood Place on Route 40 during the late seventies. They performed an incredible show for the bargain-basement price of $2,500.00.

They sang and partied all night. The show was sold out. We made a few dollars and had a night we will never forget.

Extremely talented and a testimony to love within a marriage; they could sing about love because they were in love. They could express deep emotional feelings because they knew the source of those feelings.

His talent will be missed. His music legacy will never be forgotten.

I was stunned to hear that my good friend Kenny Webster has joined the celestial stars. He was a tremendous political strategist. He represented his community and its people without giving any quarter. He talked stuff and walked with a strut. He walked that way in the State House, in City Hall and on the street corners of our city. He was comfortable anywhere he went.


I appreciated the many conversations I had with him about political matters. He was a people person and had little time for "BS." He had a high-pitched voice and would get excited as he rubbed his hands together when he talked to you. I will miss Kenny and all the good advice he gave me. I thank him for taking the time to share his wisdom with a "young turk."

"The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad." Psalm 97:1


There is no cause for anxiety as long as the above sentence is true. On earth, the Lord's power as easily controls those who are evil as He controls the winds of the sea. His love refreshes the poor with mercy as the earth with showers.

Recent events around the world should show man that his reign on earth is temporary. Rulers are falling, and man's kingdoms are failing.

I'm so glad the word confirms for me that the kingdoms of this world will become the Kingdom of our God. It's reassuring to know that no power on earth can subdue the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.

Let Mount Zion rejoice, Our Lord reigns forever and forever.

The Joy of Being Nice

Today' s sermon continues my Summer Sizzler Sermon Series. It is entitled, "The Joy of Being Nice."


Being nice describes your demeanor and reflects your Christian Character.

If we worked hard at learning how to be nice; the world, our community and our homes would be a better place.

For those that need a scripture reference: Ephesians 4: 25 - 32

Do You Need Encouragement?

Posted by Al Hathaway Thursday, August 18, 2011 0 comments

"Eternal Encouragement" 2 Thessalonians 2:16


It's good to know that in the midst of life's struggles, God provides us with His eternal encouragement. "You can make it" He whispers into our spirits during moments of despair. "Keep on going," He urges us when it seems that all we can do is quit. "I am with you," He proclaims when all around us is sinking sand. “ I’ll fight you battles,” He declares when it appears our foes have overtaken us.

Eternal encouragement knows that Jesus has paid the price for us to be safe and secure in our knowledge that we are never outside of God's love and care. It's the "Blessed Assurance" one has when they know that “Jesus is mine”. It’s the foretaste we experience here on earth.

When sickness may get us down, we are encouraged that there is a state greater than healing and its wholeness. Wholeness is when we know in our spirit that there is nothing that will separate us from the love of God.

Accepting the "Beloved" is our eternal encouragement. To feel safe and secure in the arms of God is encouraging indeed.

Political Leadership

Posted by Al Hathaway Wednesday, August 17, 2011 0 comments

During the election season, people have posed the question, "what does political leadership look like?"

I offer this picture of Reverend Delegate Wendell Phillips, and The Honorable Mayor Clarence "Du" Burns.

You never questioned who they represented. There was never an instance when the people of the community didn't have access to them.

You could count on them to champion causes that advanced the interest of people.

That's what political leadership looks like!

"How I long for the months gone by." Job 29:2


I often hear the words that "back in the day" things were better. It's almost a glorification of the past. It's surprising to me that so many people view the past with pleasure, but regard the present with dissatisfaction. Some look back with a nostalgic view, forgetting any pain, and sense that the past brought them only pleasure.

I understand pleasant thoughts of the past, particularly when I hear music from back in the day. I think about basement parties, hanging out with friends, school day's activities, and budding love affairs.

Nevertheless, a true assessment focuses my attention on the present and looks into the future. My experiences in the past have deepened my relationship with God. The pressure pot of trouble has taught me in the present that God is a very present help in the time of trouble. Being abandoned by friends and foes has taught me that Jesus does stick closer than a brother. Having experiences of lost has taught me that if this earthly house is dissolved, we have a building not made my hand eternal in the heavens. Having some experiences of suffering lack has taught me that God rewards those who diligently seek him.

I have a healthy respect for the past, but I have no desire to swim backwards. I chose to swim forward and to look to the hills from whence cometh my strength, my strength cometh from the Lord. Good Morning!!!

Faith for Change

Posted by Al Hathaway Tuesday, August 16, 2011 0 comments

In basketball terms we are in a full court press to take control of our local educational systems, particularly the schools within the neighborhood of our local churches. Faith for Change.org is an emerging organization with a commitment to take control of our public schools and educational institutions.


Rev. Romel J. Tune, Executive Director, is providing leadership to this effort. He is to be commended for his tenacity.

"Watchman what is left of the night." Isaiah 21:11


God keeps watch even during the night to make certain that the enemy does not overtake us. Sin creeps in when darkness is lurking. Our prayer life must be strong to avoid the tricks, traps, and temptations nighttime brings. God is our heavenly protector that watches over us as Satan seeks to destroy us. He prays for us that our faith will not fail, when we are sifted like wheat. Watchman, what enemies are coming in the night? We must watch out for heresy and infidelity by observing the signs of the times. Watchman what stars are visible? Stars are the precious promises of God that illuminate any situation. The stars provide us with the blessed assurance that God will never leave us. The watchman lets us know, "morning by morning new mercies I see, great is Thy faithfulness."

The Good!

Posted by Al Hathaway Monday, August 15, 2011 1 comments

"We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him." Romans 8:28


I had to read this text closely, because all things are not good. The text says, God works for the good.

With that clarity, I can believe that nothing comes my way without God's divine purpose being attached to it. I believe that God is for the good.

This is not a theoretical statement. It is a statement of faith. Every event brings the most divinely blessed results; and so, believing that God rules all, that He governs wisely, that He brings good out of evil, my heart is assured, and I am able to meet each trial as it comes.

I can stand firm in knowing that even if it seems I'm in a storm. There is a bright cloud somewhere.

Flying through a storm is a harrowing experience. The pilot informs us that to get out of the storm he would have to fly to a higher altitude.

That’s what each of us has to do. When the storms of life come; go to a higher altitude in the Lord. There you will see that you are above life's storms.

Just Stand near God Way

"As Jesus was on his way." Luke 8:42


Jesus is passing through the crowd to the house of Jairus, to raise the ruler's dead daughter; but He is so full of goodness that He works another miracle while on the road.

Jesus has no limit to his power or boundary of mission. He is so prolific in grace that, like the sun who shines as it rolls onward in its orbit, His path is radiant with loving-kindness.

He is a swift arrow of love, which not only reaches its ordained target, but perfumes the air through which it flies.

Virtue is forever going out of Jesus, as sweet odors exhale from flowers; and it always will be emanating from Him, as water from a sparkling fountain.

If our Lord is so ready to heal the sick and bless the needy, then, don't be slow to put yourself in His way, that He may smile on you.

Allow Jesus to speak a word into your heart. Seek Him where he may be found. He is present even now, for He always comes to hearts, which need Him.

I am standing in place, praying, knowing that He will pass by. Come by here my Lord, someone needs you!

10 Things I Believe About the Church

"I believe the potential for the local church to do good and create positive change in the world is greater than it has ever been."

1. I believe the potential for the local church to do good and create positive change in the world is greater than it has ever been.

2. I believe that the ROOT of the desire to do good and create positive change in the world HAS to be the GOSPEL…and if it isn’t, what will develop is cool ministry fads and ideas…but nothing revolutionary that will impact the world.

3. I believe that some of the greatest Christian leaders that the world will ever know are currently in elementary school, middle school, and high school…thus making youth and children’s ministry one of the greatest mission opportunities that the local church can invest in.

4. I believe that more and more church leaders are going to begin to take radical steps of faith rather than trying to repair broken systems.

5. I believe that more and more church leaders are going to continually put personal preferences of ministry aside and work together with other people to accomplish more ministry than they could have ever done alone.

6. I believe that we’re going to see some of the greatest moves of God this world has ever seen in the next 20 years…MOST of them happening because the local church finally decided to step up and be the church.

7. I believe God wants to use your church to do unbelievable things in the community in which HE has planted you.

8. I believe the key to a healthy church is healthy church leadership…leaders cannot fly at the speed of sound and expect to hear God’s still small voice. The healthier we get, the healthier our churches can be.

9. I believe that if ALL leaders took the advice God gave us in Galatians 6:9 that we would see breakthroughs like we’ve NEVER seen before.

10. I believe God has called the church to CHANGE the world…not complain about it!!! We are an empowered body of believers whom He has called to attempt the “impossible” so that people can see HIM!!! (So…what is that thing that you know you should do next?)

Ms. Jamila Davis

Ms. Jamila Davis is building an impressive resume.

Jamila is a senior at Spelman College majoring in Political Science and minoring in Sociology. Prior to interning with Children's Defense Fund, Jamila interned on Capitol Hill and worked at the Kennedy Krieger PACT Nursery in Baltimore. Jamila also spent a semester in Ghana where she volunteered at Beacon House Orphanage. It was following her experiences with children in her city and abroad that Jamila decided to pursue a career in child advocacy.

Jamila is an intern with the Early Childhood Development Department at CDF to gain a greater understanding of early childhood education and closing the achievement gap during the early years. Throughout the summer, she has been working on a project centered on the availability of full-day kindergarten throughout the nation. In the future, she hopes to become an educator and attend law school in order to become a child advocate.

She is also a member of Union Baptist Church. She is an example of why I am optimistic about our future. God is raising up outstanding young people right within our midst.

The Lamb as Light

Posted by Al Hathaway 0 comments

"The Lamb is its lamp." Revelation 21:23


The lamb represents God. The lamp represents light, which is joy. Okay, let's break it down. The joy of the saints in heaven is comprised of this: Jesus chose us, loved us, bought us, cleansed us, robed us, kept us, saved us, glorified us: we are here entirely through the Lord Jesus' sacrifice for us.

Heaven is the place of eternal relationship with God, in God and of God.

Light is the cause of beauty. Nothing of beauty is left when light is gone. Without light no radiance flashes from the diamond, no peaceful rays proceeds from the pearl; and thus all the beauty of the saints above comes from Jesus.

Light is also the emblem of knowledge. In heaven, our knowledge will be perfect, but the Lord Jesus Himself will be the fountain of it.

Light also means manifestation. In this world it does not yet appear what we shall be. A touch from Jesus will transform us into a manifestation of His glory.

Blessed is the Lamb who taketh away the sins of the world!

Divine Order

Posted by Al Hathaway Thursday, August 11, 2011 0 comments

"Who works our everything in conformity with the purpose of his will." Ephesians 1:11


God sees everything. The world, the universe and all creations has divine order. He sees the whole from corner to cornice, from base to roof, from foundation to pinnacle. In God, you find ultimate order and symmetry.

What about your life? How does it align with God's order? The word is clear, "all things work together for good for those who love the Lord and are called to his purpose."

Do you love the Lord? Are you called to his purpose? If so, you will find that life has ultimate order; because all life belongs to God.

God will Supply your Needs

Posted by Al Hathaway 0 comments

"Let me go to the fields and pick up the leftover grain." Ruth 2:2


When you think about the broad field of God's promises, you understand why there is abundance and that none should suffer lack. The God of the universe has so much goodness and grace that wherever you are and whatever you need; He can supply. God's fields are very rich. His sweet promises are yours for the taking. Don't be afraid, only believe. Grab the sweet promises of God, sort them out by meditation, and feed on them with joy.

God is always with you!

"Yet, I am always with you." Psalm 73:23


These are comforting words for those who worry about life situations. It seems as if the events of the day are out of control.

I awake this morning with a rock- solid confidence that the God of yesterday is the God of today and tomorrow. I woke up this morning with my bed being a spring board instead of a cooling board. I feel deep in my spirit that God is saying to you and me, "Yet, I am always with you."

God is always thinking us. God's hand is continually holding us and shaping us. God's heart perpetually loves us. Even in affliction and turmoil, we can stand before the Mercy Seat with the knowledge that even in our midnight hour, God is always with us."

God's yet is my yes!

On Saturday, I visited the White House with my family. President Obama was there and later left to go to Camp David we were told. As I walked through the White House and reflected on the journey our family had traveled from "PaPa's House" to Obama's House, I became concerned that President Obama was quickly losing his way.

He continues to be entangled in a war that is showing little results. 30 Navy Seals were killed over the weekend. The credit rating of USA was downgraded by S & P. Consumer spending is down and confidence in the economy is tanking. His speeches are failing to connect and inspire confidence in the people of America.

I was wondering what had happened and would he be able to turn the situation around. Then I read this article from the New York Times entitled, "What Happened to Obama?" Added to that article I read, "Hillary told you so." These articles are helping me reshape my opinion of President Obama and what I have concluded is that he is being too nice.

If there are forces opposing the advancement of people, "fight them." If the Tea Party is attempting to destroy your presidency, "crush them." If a minority group of Republicans are aggressively taking swings at you, "hit them back." Take the reminding year and a half of your history presidency to fight against all of the forces that are trying to prevent you from getting a second term. If you don't fight back, you surely will be a one term President and that would do us all no good.

On Doing Good

Posted by Al Hathaway 0 comments

"He went around doing good." Acts 10:38


Peter is talking about Jesus Christ by saying that, "He went around doing good." This description of his actions speaks to His personality. Why? It does not say that he went out of his way to do good. It says, it was His nature to do good. Doing good was essential to His being. He didn't delegate, hesitate or contemplate. He took the actions that resulted in good.

We can learn something from this text.

Everyday and every moment in each day, life provides us opportunities to do good. If we are following in His footsteps, we have no option but to do what Jesus would do - "Do Good everywhere you go and for everyone you encounter."

Shame on Bernstein

Posted by Al Hathaway Friday, August 5, 2011 0 comments

In yesterday's newspaper, Baltimore City State's Attorney Gregg Bernstein announced that no charges will be filed against anyone in the fatal shooting outside of a local nightclub earlier this year. Two people died. Some were injured, and many were terrified, and there were over 42 shots fired, mainly by police officers. For him to stand before local media and make the declaration, "no charges will be filed," seems incredible.

He may control the criminal process, but the private citizens affected and injured, control the civil process. Justice will be served!

Not Guilty!

Posted by Al Hathaway 0 comments

"Who will bring any charge against thou whom God has chosen?" Romans 8: 33


There is no sin in God's book against His people: he sees no sin in Jacob, neither sin in Israel; they are justified in Christ forever. When the guilt of sin was taken away, the punishment of sin was removed. For the Christian there is no stroke from God's angry hand - no, not so much as a single frown of punitive justice. The believer may be chastised by his Father, but God the Judge has nothing to say to the Christian, except " I have absolved you: you are acquitted."

No lust is too mighty, no besetting sin too strongly entrenched; we can overcome through the power of Christ. Do believe it, Christian, that your sin is a condemned thing. It may kick and struggle, but it is doomed to die. Christ has crucified it, "nailing it to His cross." Live in His praise, for sin with all its guilt, shame, and fear, is gone!

A lot of people can run fast, but very few can run fast backwards. That's his secret. He is also a student of the game. My best to Frank Walker, #41.

God's Promises

Posted by Al Hathaway 0 comments

"Very great and precious promises." 2 Peter 1:4


I ask that you meditate upon the promises of God. As you meditate on them, understand them as the word of God. When you fix your heart upon the promises of God, don't stagger because of the greatness of his mercy. Have a cheerful spirit because of the greatness of the promiser. His word is as true as His existence. He is an unchangeable God. He has not altered one word that has come from His mouth. He does not lack power. He knows when it is best to give and better to withhold. Therefore, seeing that it is the word of a God so true, so immutable, so powerful, so wise, you will and must believe the promises He makes. "He will never leave you, nor forsake you." God will always love you, because God is love!

Bubba Smith

Posted by Al Hathaway Wednesday, August 3, 2011 0 comments

You really have to be from Baltimore and old school to remember when Bubba Smith gave some fabulous parties in his apartment in the Charles Center during the 1970’s.

He was a man's man and played football like he was the biggest and the baddest. It was unfortunate that the posts being held by the referees were made of metal and cause an injury to this knee that knocked him prematurely out of football. He resurfaced in movies and pitching legal services and other products on television.

Now he is gone! Hubba, Hubba here comes Bubba as he makes his entrance into heaven. RIP

The Best Seats

Posted by Al Hathaway 0 comments

"He seats them with princes." Psalm 113:8


Have you ever been ushered to the best seating? Alternatively, have you been a special guest at a five-star restaurant? Alternatively, have you sat in the best skybox in a stadium or arena?

God has promised to seat you with the princes!

You are one of his chosen people, one of his royal priesthood, and you are a part of his holy nation. You have a courtly audience were only princes have admittance to royalty, and the common people will have to stand afar off. As a child of God you will have free access to the inner courts of heaven. You will be able to approach the throne of grace with confidence of knowing you belong.

As one seated with the princes; you will have access to abundant wealth. Nothing will be spare. You will have to want for nothing. You will also find that you have a peculiar power, and your seat is a place of special honor.

God has all of this a more for you, not in the, by and by, but right now!

Do you want to sit in your special seat?

Make Every Effort

Posted by Al Hathaway 0 comments

"Make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love."

2 Peter 1: 5, 6

What stuck me in my morning reading was the term, "make every effort." As a new week and month begin, time is quickly winding down, strive to make every effort to add to your faith. Make every effort to demonstrate your faith. Make every effort to become stronger in your faith.

As we close out 2011, God wants each one of us to make every effort to become better than before.
