Qualities of Black Men
Bishop Jakes does a dynamic job ministering to the brotha's, but I've noticed that there are hundreds maybe thousands that don't even know about The Promise Keepers Ministry that has doing the same thing for a large number of years. I've also noticed that a lot of Black church's are not involved or attend the national conferences with their congregations. What's your thoughts on these:

I heard about them years ago but didn't look into it. Didn't somebody in the organization get into trouble?

Men of Character is not an organization, but a biblical phrase used in the Christian world for men who stand and follow the scriptures, who take action to edify others in the Christian manner. And in terms of the Promise Keepers, I'm sure there are crooks in every organization. Not everybody in the church is a Christian. Some go just to find a mate. Some go because they have nothing else to do. Heck, there are crooks in the White House. But most of us still vote, dont' we? I've heard of a lot of ball players that beat or cheat on their wives, but we still route for them on the ball field. But the one man who never did any wrong, a lot of us don't want to follow, for some reason. We like to believe that we can make our own rules, and forget that He invented the whole system.

Oh no bruh... I wasnt criticizing the organization. I was just trying to refresh my memory on the last time I heard anything about the Promise Keepers. Basically... just trying to remember what was in the news last.

I know... that is a bad way to remember any group, but I do recall the gatherings they had and the inspirational influence it had on so many men. Especially black men. I think I even knew a brotha who attended a few of the meetings.

I know that promise keepers did go bankrupt expanding too fast and the under the rug issue of race problems did not help them at all.

This is one area where race relations comes in to action. Promise Keepers does not have enough men to get out into the "hood", to get us involved. Consequently, not enough of us choose to get involved with an organization like this unless we see more of us. Will somebody please stand up and take the lead for once.

Hey jack. Is it possible that you could recommend some reputable organizations in the memphis area to work with on community outreach. I'm conducting my own research but noticed that you have some insight in this area. I would welcome some references.

I hope this is what you're looking for and that I'm not breaking any rules by posting this.
Peace and Grace
