 In Your Presence Lyrics by Williams McDowell 
(Ft. Israel Houghton)

Everything we need
is here 
in your presence 
Oh Oh oo oo

Everything we need 
is here 
in your presence

He's here in this room
right now

My healer
My saviour
Is here right now

Is Here...

There is no place like your presence Lord
No place we'd rather be

Meet every need unspoken
Heal every broken heart
Lift every burden 
In your presence

Restore what has been stolen
speak peace to every storm
Let there be freedom
In your presence

Your presence is here God
Let there be freedom

Oh oh oo oo
Oh Oh oo oo
Oh Oh oo oo

Everything we need 
Is here

‘It Is Better To Be An Atheist Than A Greedy Christian’ — Pope Francis

Christians who exploit people, lead double life and get involved in ‘dirty business’, scandalise the church have been advised to better be an atheist rather than be a greedy christian.

Pope Francis stated this in a sermon on Thursday, February 24 in Rome that but to be a Catholic like the above, it’s better to be an atheist. It is that, scandal. You destroy. You beat down, he said.

According to Vatican Radio. Examples of such scandals abound, the Pope said, adding that they destroy the church and the guilty Christian from within.

He imagines a wealthy Christian knocking at the gates of heaven and saying, “Here I am, Lord! I went to Church, I was close to you, I belong to this association, I did this. Don’t you remember all the offerings I made?” To which Jesus may reply, according to the Pope: “Yes, I remember. The offerings, I remember them: All dirty. All stolen from the poor. I don’t know you.’ That will be Jesus’ response to these scandalous people who live a double life.”

Thursday’s sermon is far from the first time Francis has targeted Christian hypocrites. In a sermon last February, the outspoken pope called out the “fakeness” of some Christians, who talk piously, but do nothing to help others.

“To be a Christian means to do the will of God and on the last day because all of us we will have one that day what shall the Lord ask us? Will He say: ‘What you have said about me?’ No. He shall ask us about the things we did.” It isn’t the first time the Pope has mentioned atheists, either.

Gospel Singer Jonathan McReynolds Tells Christians to Take Advantage of Stock Market Surge Under Trump

Even though gospel singer Jonathan McReynolds turned down the opportunity to sing at one of President Donald Trump's inaugural events, he's now advising Christians to take advantage of the stock market which has hit record highs since his election in November.

Trump tweeted about the continued stock marget surge on Feb. 16, writing: "Stock market hits new high with longest winning streak in decades. Great level of confidence and optimism — even before tax plan rollout!" That same day, USA Today reported that the Dow had hit an all-time record closing high.

When the 27-year-old McReynolds realized that the stock market has been surging, he advised his Instagram followers to take advantage of their economic opportunities.

"I have some real cautious Instagram followers out there that get concerned when I make excursions outside of the normal church topics: worship music, preaching, whatever," he said in an Instagram video. "But I think it's very important that at least some of the body of Christ stays engaged in politics and things that are going on in economics and culture so that one, we can influence it, and two, we can benefit from it."

McReynolds said that while he was young and imperfect, he thought it was important to inform people about current economic events.

"Whether you love or hate Donald Trump ever since he was elected president, the stock market has been going up. And everybody, including me that has a stake in the stock market — whether it's a mutual fund, Facebook, whatever — we have benefited from the stock market jump," he said. "So, I'm just telling you guys, whether you love him, understand him, whatever, benefit from this moment, get in that stock market and get some money for the Kingdom."

Still, the singer urged Christians to do their research.

"#KingdomMoney I can help you if you let me lol," he captioned the video. "Do your research though, and STAY ATTENTIVE!"

Last month, McReynolds explained in a blog post why he had turned down an invitation to sing at one of the president's inaugural festivities saying: "I declined because I simply don't believe this opportunity was for ME. (I wouldn't have been able to sing any 'Life Music' either.). MY convictions concerning politics and President-elect Donald Trump would have made me miserable on the flight to Washington," the musician wrote on his personal blog LifeRoom Talk.

"I wouldn't feel good honoring the office of a man who (I feel) hasn't honored it yet. Often times, honoring is not agreeing, it's disagreeing in a respectful manner."

Although McReynolds declined the offer to make an appearance, he agreed that people of God needed to attend. He referred to the biblical book of Daniel to provide an example of people appearing before a leader that they did not share values with.

"There was a leader much worse than anyone America has elected and his term was longer than four years, King Nebuchadnezzar. History, our redemption history, would have changed dramatically if Daniel and the three Hebrew boys didn't toe the line between serving and bowing so well," he wrote. "They didn't eat everything the King tried to feed them and they didn't bow when it opposed what they knew was true. But they were definitely in the building. The unique power and potency in their gifts actually made the King bow and bend to them."

The singer concluded by adding, "I'm sure their fellow Hebrews were suspicious of their closeness to the King, but the King was made better because of that closeness."




Gospel Singer & Songwriter James Fortune Moves Forward After Domestic Assault of Wife, Says ‘I Forgive Me’

Domestic violence carries with it a stigma for both the abuser and the victim—one that isn’t easy to shake, particularly for Christians.

But once on-top gospel songwriter James Fortune, who pled guilty to battering his wife Cheryl Fortune last year, is moving forward, reclaiming his life, forgiving himself and re-launching his music career.

Though the public scandal ruined his reputation, family and ministry, he believes the key to getting back up is self-forgiveness.

“There are a lot of times we try to move on and we understand the grace of God, and we receive the grace of God, but if you haven’t truly forgiven yourself, you’ll continue to replay those negative circumstances,” said the 38-year-old, whilst marketing his new single “I Forgive Me” during an interview on nationally syndicated radio show Get Up! Mornings with Erica Campbell.

“You’ll continue to replay those things that you may have done,” continued Fortune, who admittedly assaulted his wife.

“When you carry around the guilt, and shame and the anger of your past, what you do is, you continue to be hurt, and of course we know that hurt people hurt people,” said the “Live Through It” songwriter who was sentenced to five days in jail, five years of probation, 175 hours of community service, and required to complete a "batterer's intervention" program, and keep away from Mrs. Fortune.

The previously abusive spouse, who was also sued for $5 million by his stepson's father who said the singer burned the boy in hot water when he was four years old to punish him, told listeners, “In order for me to have the future God has planned for me, I’ve got to be able to forgive the old me.”

During the call-in discussion, the interviewer, Erica of the GRAMMY® Award-winning duo Mary Mary, asked the Houston, Texas native and preacher's son, “How heavy or challenging was it to forgive yourself after all the public opinion and everything kind of being in front of everybody’s faces?”

He answered, “That was one of the most challenging parts of it and it wasn’t so much the people, but it was just [difficult] for my family, for my children, for everyone who was affected.”

Fortune explained, “You publicly see people that you love and care for have to go through because of decisions that you made, because of choices that you made.”

As badly as he messed up, the artist who is now starting over said therapy helped him realize “the importance of being able to forgive yourself" so he would not “just go on about life, and you’re prayed up, and you ask God for forgiveness, and you receive his grace, but on the inside you’re still carrying around shame. You’re still worried about what this person has to say and what about what this blog is gonna write. You’re continuing to allow the cycle to go on and on, because you’re hurting.”

At present, the fallen leader who is working hard to rebuild his shattered life and career said, for the sake of himself, his children and the rest of his family, “I had to be able to say, you know what? I forgive me. God has forgiven me. I forgive me.”

Kirk Franklin's Wife Says Counseling Saved Marriage

Aside from prayer, the gospel music veteran's wife, Tammy Franklin, revealed just how much her marriage to the head of the Fo Yo Soul Entertainment record label has been impacted by therapy.

"I think that as a culture we kind of shy away from counseling and therapy but it's important. It says that you love each other enough, love yourself enough to get the help that you need," Tammy said on "Get Up! Mornings With Erica Campbell" last week. "And so we've done counseling; it has saved our marriage. We pray together and I'm not only his wife, but I'm his girlfriend."

Other than therapy, Tammy spoke about the importance of not forgetting that the root of their relationship stems from friendship.

"When you have a girlfriend and y'all are at odds with each other it just [doesn't] feel right, it just hurts you. But sometimes we're not like that with our spouses," Tammy said. "But if you have a friend in your spouse, then my heart aches when we get into it. I'm like, 'ok I'm ready to talk through this, let's get back.'"

The Franklins have been transparent about their union and celebrated their 21st anniversary last month. In a previous blog for Patheos, Franklin let people know that in order to have a successful marriage, divorce has to take place.

In the blog titled "The Great Divorce," the entertainer explained the importance of divorcing things in life that are holding you back from being sanctified. He recalled being a newlywed and looking at another woman while he was eating at a restaurant with his wife.

"The spirit of ADD attacked my mind, the focus of my eyes left the beautiful bride in front of me and turned to this mean horrible lady who shouldn't have worn such a sexy dress and sweet smelling perfume," Franklin wrote. "Tammy stopped talking as she noticed my attention had turned to the young lady that had passed, began to roll her neck and suck her teeth like only a sista is gifted by God to do."

Instead of causing a scene, Franklin's wife gave him an ultimatum. He recalled her speaking with "the quietness of a lamb, yet the authority of a soldier," while letting him know that she would not allow him to look at both the woman and his wife.

Franklin chose his wife, Tammy. Still, he recalls the root of the real struggle he faced years ago.

"I had old habits I developed before I understood that salvation and sanctification were two different things and took some old hurtful habits into my marriage: promiscuity, a carnal approach to putting the past behind me, childhood addictions of pornography," Franklin wrote. "Of course, my wife's shoulders were not built for my unhealthy past. I almost crushed her in the beginning of our marriage, because one woman cannot keep up the performance of several. God

Gospel Singer Kierra Sheard Writes Open Letter to Her ‘Black History Legend’ Grandmother Dr. Mattie Moss Clark

Dr. Mattie Moss Clark, the pioneering mother of GRAMMY® winners, The Clark Sisters, is receiving some much-deserved recognition from her granddaughter during Black History Month.

Gospel singer Kierra Sheard has written an open letter to the legendary matriarch whom she rightly refers to as “a black history legend.”

“I wish you were here to see all that is happening with us! So many great blessings have been showered upon our family,” wrote the 29-year-old daughter of singer Karen Clark Sheard, who published the personal sentiments on her website.

For those who are unfamiliar with the iconic musician, Ebony Magazine dubbed the late great Church of God In Christ (COGIC) President of the International Music Department the “Queen of Gospel.”

Those who knew the woman that taught others never to sing, preach, or teach without prayer and to be sure Christ is always the center of attraction, simply called her “Dr. Clark,” “Mattie,” or “Madame President.”

Today, Dr. Clark remains one of the most influential and prominent historical figures in gospel music, and her accomplishments are deeply intertwined with her COGIC roots.

“To know what you stood for, and how you were so connected with the new generation in your day, I wonder if you would be proud of how I'm trying my best to stay connected with this new generation of my day,” wondered Sheard, founder of Bold! Right! Life!—a youth organization that strives to guide and nurture youth both spiritually, and naturally.

During her reflective mood, the Stellar Award-winning “Invisible” singer said, “I'm grateful for the many lessons that you've taught me directly, through Mommy and my aunts.”

Before sharing her innermost thoughts about her late grandma on the Internet, the Wayne State University graduate said, "i was up last night watching videos of you and seeing how passionate you were with your music.”

Clearly proud of her grandmother, the eleven60 fashion designer was careful to note that Dr. Clark is “still known as the first African American woman to have introduced three-part harmony to choirs/groups with many voices.”

Sheard added, “You were ahead of your time.”

Trained in classical music and choral singing at Selma University, Dr. Clark helped mold some very successful gospel artists such as Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Donald Vails, Commissioned, Bishop Richard “Mr. Clean” White, Bishop Rance Allen, and the late Rev. James Moore and her own daughters, The Clark Sisters, just to name a few.

She was born the seventh of nine children to Fred John Moss and Mattie Juliet Walker in Selma, AL, on March 26, 1925. She started playing the piano at six years old. By the age of 12, she was already a musician at Church of Christ and Prayer.

It was obvious early on that Dr. Clark was destined for greatness.

After leaving an indelible mark on the fabric of gospel music, she passed away September 22, 1994 of diabetes complications at the age of 69. Though she is gone, she is absolutely remembered.

Before ending her sweet letter, Sheard told her grandmother, “I love you. I miss you. Your legacy still lives! You're a Black History legend.”

Indeed she is.

Gospel Singer Tasha Cobbs Honored With Key to Jessup, Georgia

Tasha Cobbs has received Grammy, Dove and Stellar Awards. Now, she's accepting another important honor: a key to her hometown.

The 35-year-old gospel music star who hails from Jessup, Georgia, received the honor of the "Key to the City" given to residents and visitors by the city council and mayor. And Cobbs took to social media to share the moment with her supporters.

"WOW! Tonight was AMAZING," she wrote on Instagram Sunday. "The mayor from my hometown presented me with Key to the City... words escape me right now!"

In the video, Jesup Mayor David Earl Keith presented Cobbs with the honor at Unity Church of God in Jesup.

"I know you travel all over the world and I know you tell people about Jesup. We appreciate you doing that," Keith told Cobbs in front of the church's congregation. "Tasha Cobb has shown herself to be an exemplary citizen and outstanding member of Jesup Georgia. Tasha Cobb is known for her entertainment success and numerous accomplishments [that] include a Grammy, Dove and Stellar Awards."

Despite all of her success throughout the years, Cobbs has expressed that her small town origins keep her humble.

"I am a country girl. I have no choice to be humble," she told Jet magazine in a previous interview.

"If I ever think to get the big head — I just think I'm from Jessup, Georgia."

Aside from her humility, Cobbs told the magazine that pursuing God's will instead of her own has contributed to her success.

"My answer is still 'yes, God do what you do.' Along with that comes the ups and downs," she said. "You have to go through some things so that God can mature you and trust you with the things that He gives you."

She also cited perseverance as a quality that has enabled her to continue to reach new heights in her career.

"If God did it before for anybody, He will do it again. Persevere, be consistent where you are — be faithful in ministry," she said. "Don't stop working in ministry. Sometimes we give — give — give, but be faithful and you will be replenished."
