Professor Crawford is a assertive human. He does not like to be corrected. The first time Jamal turned in an essay Professor Crawford doubted that he wrote it by himself. Crawford doubted Jamal because he was African American. Jamal is an extremely talented writer and Crawford knows, but he refuses to accept the fact and continues to bring Jamal down. Crawford wanted to see if Jamal can come up with his own words so he made Jamal write an essay with his supervision.

TD Jakes has one amazing thing to say after another. I'm not exaggerating. I can't count the number of aha moments I've had while listening to him. While he is a pastor, you don't need to be religious to benefit from his lessons. What he says makes sense for everyone who wants to become better and happier. His mission is helping people find their purpose and fulfill their destiny, and we can all benefit from that kind of person.
Now what sets him aside from most pastors is after every service is not only the Joel Osteen but him and his family makes their way to the church lobby to meet what is typically a few thousand people, who wait in line for a little face to face time, a blessing, or just a word of hope for someone going through a hard time.
Pastor Dale practice what he preaches each and everyday. He is always the first one there and the last one to leave on Sundays or at any other church event. He coordinates work night and service projects often at his church. You will always find him going above and beyond his call of duty, doing things like: Waxing, moping and sweeping the floors of the our parish hall, cutting the grass,
His ministry is an example of how all churches should be or strive to be, and if you haven’t noticed Sunday is the most segregated day of the week but he has done a great job of not letting that be the case for his church and he did this just by being his natural self. The people liked what they were receiving from him and he didn’t have to change who he was they adjusted to him. Of course all of these accomplishments he could not have done on his own but with the Grace of God and the guidance from his parents that he had as a young child helped him to become the man he is today. This all goes back to who influenced him and with the traits he received from his father of being a hard-worker and having that drive of determination. With this he would be able to work through obstacles and roadblocks and he was able to push past whatever he went through because of that influence that his father had on him and that played a part of where he was headed in life. Another contribution to this was his mother's teachings and lessons that helped him to navigate through life and be the successful man he is and she played a big part in this also because without her giving him the wisdom and the word of God he wouldn't be where he is at today including his high social status. When his parents put him in a good environment and placed him around the church at a very young age they probably didn’t know but they were really preparing him for his destiny in life. The latest book he has written was in 2017 called Soar!: Build Your Vision from the Ground Up and in this inspirational book he uses examples and life lessons from his own life and personal experiences for entrepreneurs to have the mindset of a business owner. He furthermore explains that his father had a very huge impact on
Bernard also tries to bring awareness to those around him, but his intentions are selfish and based off of his own loneliness. He goes on an expedition to a place where human live in a seemingly uncivilized and nomadic way and brings one of the people, John, back. Upon his return Bernard becomes a celebrity because of his relation to John, who is so different he is intriguing to others. Bernard becomes upset because John will no longer go out with him, so Bernard’s novelty wears off. He then turns to soma to fix his sadness, while he previously would have turned the soma down, preferring to feel those emotions and be
I really clicked with the last speaker, Reverend Jae Quinlan. I am not sure if it is because we are soul sisters from a past life, or because we share the same name, but I adored her persona. Upon reflection, I wasn’t too sure what the overall message of her speech was. I really enjoyed her different perspective on religion, and engaging with a feminist pastor was refreshingly different. In the essay entitled “Religion” in Critical Terms for the Study of Gender, Regina Schwartz discusses the evolution of religious belief, highlighting that “the wide range of meanings of religion has tended to be more productive than confusing for religions, affording opportunities for change within cultural formations that would otherwise be stable and conservative”, making these rigid belief systems
One of Bernard’s most important contributions were his sermons on the Song of Song’s. He took a radical approach to the sermons and described the spiritual relationship between God and man like a marriage (Ruud). These views were very different and considered mystical thinking in his time. Secondly, Bernard created a monastery which many monks came to as a way to practice the teachings he taught. Letters describes the life of these God-seeking monks and the spiritual renewal they get in Bernard’s monastery. One letter written by Peter De Roya, writes, “There the insane recover their reason, and although their outward man is worn away, inwardly they are born again. There the proud are humbled, the rich are made poor, and the poor have the Gospel preached to them, and the darkness of sinners is changed into light” (De Roya “Earliest”). This describes the change in person people become after experiencing God in this mystical monastery that Bernard founded. The monastery was a positive effect of his influence. The monks strived to be like Christ and have a personal relationship with him (De Roya
Joel Osteen is a Houston, Texas raised preacher of nearly 20 years now. After being raised by parents of ministry, he refused for many years to follow in his parents’ footsteps and to take his own path with life. Unexpectedly, his father, a southern Baptist preacher, fell ill due to kidney complications. His father asked him if he would give a sermon for him that Sunday. This sermon turned out to be the last sermon that his father would ever hear and Joel has devoted his life to ministry ever since. Joel began working for Lakewood church, which quickly became popular through his powerful sermons. As his fan-base grew, he became the largest non-denominational church in America, resulting in a TV program and thousands of podcasts. Joel’s sermons are broadcasted all over the internet, spreading the word of God to 100 million homes in the U.S. and tens of millions more in roughly 100 nations (Osteen). This has made
