This was a few weeks back, but hadn't had the opportunity to speak about it. . . .
God has truly blessed me, and has given me the opportunity to bring light to dark places. Sometimes, the mission is simply to bring hope, and to educate where many times we want to shout Jesus in people's faces that may not what is needed up front in order to build bridges.
I have said many times before when I attend these events it seems like family reunions, and times of deep reflection. This seemingly simple public school event here in the Bronx, took me back to when I was given the opportunity in High School to have my voice and my talent heard. It was the people who gave me this opportunity that allowed me to further deeply reflect on my life as I became more and more confident in my ability to create art and share it with others.
Sometimes I wonder if we create enough of these opportunities in ministry. . . A time where we "pass the torch" and give people not yet fully trained the ability to lead in small ways and build them up in the process.
The young people at this event where not only excited to "get out of class" for the day, but also to receive education through art, with skits, music, poetry, and special guests like myself and Hot 97 to meet them in their every day school environment. I pray God gives me more opportunities to enter venues such as this, and not only those visible within the church walls to bring an extension of the true goodness into the world.
