YOU da MAN May 6 is when this story begins, when Walter Lewis McBride was born and raised right here in Medon, Tennessee, The beloved son of Velma Croom and Moses McBride, born in a poor family, but managed to walk in pride, He was the sixth child of number thirteen, and he proved early in life on whom they could depend. He found favor with the one Elder Johnny Marshall, who saw something special in the little lad named Walter, He went to school with his feet cold and wet, but being the smart young man he was, he figured out he could warm them by placing them inside his little hat, His education did not go beyond eighth grade. But how would we have known that with all the accomplishments in life he’s made? He was hired out by the family to help ends meet, and regardless of what he may have suffered then, he did not suffer defeat, At age eighteen, he married his childhood sweetheart, Lizzie Embary, who is still the most precious part of his memory. He found himself in World War II as a very young man, where his strength and courage would be challenged once again, We’re reminded of how this man shed tears when he realized he had to be willing to kill or be killed. He soon returned home to his wife, where Lewis was born, his first little boy. Then came Charlene their baby girl, his little bundle of joy; followed by Tilmon, Shirley, Clara, Michael, and Wayne. I know raising seven kids sometimes brought pain, Later in life came Chiquita, to their surprise, but it didn’t take long for them to see she was a jewel in disguise. He worked long and hard as a young dad, to give his family, what he never had, He took a job at the railroad tracks to provide a better life for his family and no turning back, At some point in life, he saw the saints needed a church; being the man he was, even though not the pastor, he got busy and went to work. He helped build this little church on the hill and since that time, he has never been still, He’s pastored here now for more than forty years, and I know, there has been blood, sweat, and tears. He’s instilled in the saints how to study the Word of God; to live by it and apply it to our hearts, God has blessed Bishop McBride to know the Bible from A to Z, And that mind of his ... oh how amazing to me. He’s been blessed to reach age eight-four, and we all are praying for more and more and more, He’s traveled many places in this big old world with wife, Lizzie, by his side, and sometimes their little girl, so as we travel through just a small portion of his life and also remembering his darling wife. We think of the words of President Barack Obama when we chanted, “Yes We Can!” But the saints of Whitehall Church of God say to you, “Bishop McBride, You da Man!” Penned by First Lady Sandra Hych October 2010

There was a man in a deep, deep hole; it seemed impossible for him to get out. He cried for help, but those who heard him either didnt or couldnt help him. They prayed for him, but the poor man couldnt get out until one day a brother came along who jumped down into the hole too. The man in the hole said, Brother, why did you jump down here? Now you are stuck down here with me. But the brother said, I jumped down here because I was in this hole not too long ago, and I know a secret way out. William Bradley was once the man in the hole. Now free, he offers to lend a strong hand to others with Look Where He Brought Me From. Bradley grew up in New York, spending all his money on fast cars and faster womenand then he caught his big break in the late sixties NYC music scene. With the hard partying and easy money, Bradley seemed destined for an early grave like so many talented, promising young people. Then he started listening to the messages God had been sending him throughout his life. Now in his seventieth year and the prime of his life, Bradley reflects on how the blessing and favor of the Lord let him overcome his many obstacles, and how through following the path God has set for us, we can find success without sacrificing our dreams.

This is a story about my great-great-grandmother, Maah on the Plantation in Abbeville, South Carolina during the Civil War Era which takes you to my mother, Honey Bea in Mount Pleasant - Charleston during the Civil Rights Era, and it ends with reflections on race relations 150 years later. It tells of our struggles as an African American family and how victories were reached through prayers and persistence...... The first four chapters start off in a slightly Gullah Geechie dialect of Charleston, with the modern English interpretation of those chapters at the back of the book for those that are not familiar with the Gullah dialect... ...MAAH - DURING THE 1860s CIVIL WAR ERA..... Massa aint know that Mae Ann cant stand he tail now, and that she be fuh spit in he food and in he water every chance she get, since Massa done whip she child worsa than he would do an old mule.... Now it be a lil fore midnight and we slaves all be fuh sit or fuh lie down in the church, just fuh wait on somethin. They say President Lincoln done give we somethin that gonna free all of we slaves in the south..... I know I gonna go to Charleston with my freedom..... ...MAAH - WHEN THEY FINALLY GET TO CHARLESTON... Lord, Charleston be just fuh crawl over with the Negro folks. I hey tell that most of the Negro folks in this ya whole country come from these parts and now, cause I fuh see, what I fuh see, I be fuh believe them fuh real. They dey yet still got the slave market right ya in Charleston. ...HONEY BEA IN CHARLESTON, SC DURING THE CIVIL RIGHTS ERA IN THE 1960s... The pastor continues on with his fervent preaching. God is able! He brought our people from a mighty long way! Oh yes, My God is able! We have got to have that same kind of faith next week when we go to vote. We have got to believe that God is sending deliverance to our people through Kennedy to free us from the Jim Crow Laws just he as he did a hundred years ago when he sent Abraham Lincoln to free the slaves. Answer this for me, please Is there anything too hard for our God?"..... I start thinking about those crazy Jim Crow s laws. Just last week we had gone to Woolworth to get a soda float for Sarah. I was tired because we had been shopping downtown all day on King Street and spending all my money in the white and Jewish stores. Most of the Jewish merchants were usually really nice to my babies and always told me how clean and pretty I always kept them. That day I was just too tired so I sat down at the counter at Woolworths... The man that worked there refused to serve me because I was sitting down at the counter. "Niggra, you know you cant sit down at this here counter. You know the rules!" He says to me loudly. I was getting tired of the silly rules, and I was physically tired too. "I am paying my money just like everyone else that is sitting at the counter and I deserve to be served too." He looked at me with scorn in his eyes and his face turned beet red with anger. Now you listen here, gal, I dont care what you are paying. You best be gittin out of here or I am gonna have to git you outta here myself, and then Im gonna call the patrol man on you."... I look at him and say My momma always told me that git is for dogs, and I am know that I am no dog. I am due the same respect that you give to any lady!... He leaves from behind the counter and comes around the front toward me and my three children. I thought about my babies and what would happen to them if the policeman came to arrest me and I had to leave them behind. I start to leave and he turns around to go back behind the counter and stumbles over a box in his path. He trips over the box and goes flying face forward and all I could think of is, "Da git for ya!" Which means, that it is good for him that something bad just happened to him as punishment for being so mean to me... We get outside, and a white man runs up behind us. "Excuse me mam. I just want to say that I a

"The first chance I got, I bought my very first bag of crystal methamphetamine... A monster was born." "Try as I might, there is simply no way for me to minimize the impact with which crystal meth slammed into my life, at least not without straying far from the truth. It was like throwing a forty-pound sledge hammer though a plate glass window." "What a cunning thing this was that lived inside of me. How could I ever hope to win against it? My good intentions meant nothing what I lacked was power." Meth Monster is the autobiographical story of one gay African American man's personal journey to faith and deliverance from drugs and alcohol, and particularly from the scourge of crystal methamphetamine. The author takes his readers through his troubled early years in Indiana, hustling on the streets of Hollywood, and dealing drugs in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco. Blaine boldly examines his personal demons from the time they take up residence in his subconscious and through their horrific and destructive manifestations. After numerous visits to jails, prisons and rehab, and after finally confronting his addiction, his sexuality, AIDS and a broken spirit, at last he finds redemption, healing and forgiveness through the grace and mercy of The Living God.

I want to share my story...my encounters...my journey...my testimony. There were moments in my life when it seemed like giving up was easier than striving. But something within me wouldn't let me give up. I decided to put my life on pages so people could gain insight of who I am. I feel as though it is my responsibility to help inspire someone-give some hope. Let them know that they can overcome anything. Even when people count you out, God counts you in. Through sickness, adversity, disappointments, rejection, violation, and neglect, I didn't let that stop me. The rougher the mountain, the higher the climb. I had to go through all these things to become the woman I am. God brought me through. People can change what you may thing, but they cannot change what you know. God opens doors that no man can shut!

Throughout the widely praised Camulod Chronicles, Merlyn Britannicus has been driven by one sacred dream--to see Britain united under one just, powerful king. In The Sorcerer: Metamorphosis, it is time for the Sorcerer to fulfill his promise--to present the battle-proven Arthur as the Riothamus, the High King of Britain. When Arthur miraculously withdraws the Sword of Kingship from the stone in which it is set, he proves himself the true and deserving king--sworn to defend the Christian faith against invaders, and to preserve Britain as a powerful, united force. The Sorcerer has fulfilled his promise. The King is crowned, Britain is united--and the face of history and legend is forever changed.
