  • Jack: I GOT WORD THAT MY FATHER HAD BEEN SEVERELY INJURED
  • 00:00:07.110 --> 00:00:09.240
  • IN FORT WORTH, TEXAS.
  • 00:00:09.270 --> 00:00:12.150
  • HE HAD BEEN BLUDGEONED WITH A HAMMER.
  • 00:00:12.180 --> 00:00:15.120
  • HE DIED 10 DAYS LATER,
  • 00:00:15.150 --> 00:00:17.120
  • NEVER RECOVERING FROM THOSE WOUNDS.
  • 00:00:17.150 --> 00:00:20.080
  • IT HAPPENED TO BE A BLACK MAN
  • 00:00:20.110 --> 00:00:23.220
  • THAT BEAT MY FATHER TO DEATH.
  • 00:00:23.250 --> 00:00:26.280
  • I HAD A CHOICE AT THAT POINT.
  • 00:00:27.010 --> 00:00:29.220
  • Announcer: CHRISTIAN LEADERS JOINED TOGETHER
  • 00:00:29.250 --> 00:00:31.220
  • TO HELP BRIDGE THE RACIAL DIVIDE IN OUR SOCIETY.
  • 00:00:31.250 --> 00:00:36.020
  • 00:00:41.090 --> 00:00:47.140
  • TO LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:00:55.100 --> 00:00:56.130
  • BETTY AND I CONSIDER IT
  • 00:00:56.130 --> 00:00:57.160
  • AN HONOR TO SHARE
  • 00:00:57.160 --> 00:00:58.190
  • THIS TIME WITH YOU.
  • 00:00:58.190 --> 00:00:59.230
  • WE'VE BEEN BRINGING TOGETHER
  • 00:00:59.230 --> 00:01:01.000
  • OVER THE LAST FEW DAYS
  • 00:01:02.040 --> 00:01:03.090
  • THE HEARTFELT CONCERN,
  • 00:01:03.090 --> 00:01:04.190
  • AND I BELIEVE THE LOVE OF GOD,
  • 00:01:04.190 --> 00:01:06.160
  • EXPRESSED THROUGH SOME
  • 00:01:06.160 --> 00:01:07.230
  • OF THE MOST RESPECTED
  • 00:01:07.230 --> 00:01:08.290
  • CHURCH LEADERS IN AMERICA.
  • 00:01:08.290 --> 00:01:11.110
  • MANY OF THEM LEAD THE LARGEST
  • 00:01:11.110 --> 00:01:12.260
  • CHRISTIAN DENOMINATIONS.
  • 00:01:12.260 --> 00:01:14.260
  • THEY TRULY HAVE
  • 00:01:14.260 --> 00:01:16.030
  • A SHEPHERD'S HEART.
  • 00:01:16.030 --> 00:01:17.060
  • BUT THESE PEOPLE
  • 00:01:17.060 --> 00:01:18.090
  • WITH DIVERSE BACKGROUNDS,
  • 00:01:18.090 --> 00:01:19.170
  • DISTINCTIVE DIFFERENCES
  • 00:01:19.170 --> 00:01:20.250
  • IN SOME AREAS, HOWEVER,
  • 00:01:20.250 --> 00:01:22.200
  • HAVE COME TOGETHER
  • 00:01:22.200 --> 00:01:23.270
  • IN SUPERNATURAL UNITY;
  • 00:01:23.270 --> 00:01:25.020
  • THE KIND OF UNITY
  • 00:01:25.020 --> 00:01:26.060
  • THAT IT'S GOING TO TAKE
  • 00:01:26.060 --> 00:01:27.090
  • TO SEE OUR NATION HEALED.
  • 00:01:27.090 --> 00:01:30.070
  • YOU'RE GOING TO BE BLESSED
  • 00:01:30.070 --> 00:01:31.130
  • AS YOU LISTEN.
  • 00:01:31.130 --> 00:01:32.170
  • YOU'RE GOING TO BE PRAYING
  • 00:01:32.170 --> 00:01:33.280
  • AND YOU'RE GOING TO
  • 00:01:33.280 --> 00:01:35.100
  • PARTICIPATE PRAYERFULLY
  • 00:01:35.100 --> 00:01:36.200
  • IN MAKING THE WISEST
  • 00:01:36.200 --> 00:01:38.020
  • CHOICES POSSIBLE BASED
  • 00:01:38.020 --> 00:01:40.100
  • ON BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES,
  • 00:01:40.100 --> 00:01:42.090
  • UNSHAKABLE,
  • 00:01:42.090 --> 00:01:43.210
  • FOUNDATIONAL TRUTH.
  • 00:01:43.210 --> 00:01:45.210
  • E.W: SOMETHING THAT WE
  • 00:01:48.210 --> 00:01:50.050
  • DON'T TALK ABOUT ENOUGH
  • 00:01:50.050 --> 00:01:51.150
  • YOU KNOW IT IS TRUE;
  • 00:01:52.260 --> 00:01:55.100
  • THERE IS A DEEP,
  • 00:01:55.100 --> 00:01:57.250
  • OF UNFORGIVENESS
  • 00:01:59.070 --> 00:02:00.160
  • IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY
  • 00:02:00.160 --> 00:02:01.180
  • OVER SLAVERY AND JIM CROW.
  • 00:02:01.180 --> 00:02:04.030
  • IT IS AS IF
  • 00:02:04.030 --> 00:02:05.130
  • IT JUST ENDED YESTERDAY
  • 00:02:05.130 --> 00:02:06.230
  • IN THE MINDS OF MANY.
  • 00:02:06.230 --> 00:02:09.050
  • THE MOMENT YOU START TALKING
  • 00:02:09.050 --> 00:02:10.150
  • ABOUT RACE IT COMES UP.
  • 00:02:10.150 --> 00:02:13.070
  • WE CAN'T SEEM TO GET PAST IT
  • 00:02:13.070 --> 00:02:15.170
  • AND MANY OF US
  • 00:02:15.170 --> 00:02:17.010
  • ARE NOT PREACHING FORGIVENESS
  • 00:02:17.010 --> 00:02:18.120
  • AND RECONCILIATION.
  • 00:02:18.120 --> 00:02:20.240
  • WHAT I TRY TO DO
  • 00:02:20.240 --> 00:02:22.150
  • AND WHAT BISHOP HARRY JACKSON
  • 00:02:22.150 --> 00:02:24.090
  • JUST SAID IS ABSOLUTELY TRUE
  • 00:02:24.090 --> 00:02:26.160
  • BUT YOU CAN'T EVEN GET THERE
  • 00:02:26.160 --> 00:02:28.040
  • IF PEOPLE THINK,
  • 00:02:28.040 --> 00:02:29.140
  • WHAT ARE YOU ALL UP TO?
  • 00:02:29.140 --> 00:02:30.290
  • AND THE MAN'S OUT TO GET ME.
  • 00:02:30.290 --> 00:02:32.270
  • THERE IS NO TRUST,
  • 00:02:32.270 --> 00:02:34.040
  • THERE IS NO BASIS
  • 00:02:34.040 --> 00:02:35.160
  • FOR COMMUNICATION.
  • 00:02:35.160 --> 00:02:36.250
  • WHAT I SAY TO PEOPLE IS
  • 00:02:36.250 --> 00:02:37.290
  • YOU'VE GOT TO PUT AMERICA
  • 00:02:37.290 --> 00:02:39.020
  • IN THE CONTEXT.
  • 00:02:39.020 --> 00:02:40.060
  • THIS IS THE ANALOGY I'VE USED.
  • 00:02:40.060 --> 00:02:41.100
  • EVERY TIME A BLACK GUY
  • 00:02:41.100 --> 00:02:42.140
  • COMMITS SOME CRIME
  • 00:02:42.140 --> 00:02:43.150
  • ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS
  • 00:02:43.150 --> 00:02:44.200
  • WE TALK ABOUT IS
  • 00:02:44.200 --> 00:02:45.190
  • WOW, LOOK AT THE POVERTY.
  • 00:02:45.190 --> 00:02:46.180
  • LOOK AT THE LACK OF A FATHER
  • 00:02:46.180 --> 00:02:47.240
  • IN THE HOME.
  • 00:02:47.240 --> 00:02:49.080
  • AND WE TRY TO PUT IN
  • 00:02:49.080 --> 00:02:50.150
  • CONTEXT HIS BEHAVIOR.
  • 00:02:50.150 --> 00:02:52.180
  • BUT WE DON'T EVER TRY
  • 00:02:52.180 --> 00:02:53.200
  • TO PUT IN CONTEXT
  • 00:02:53.200 --> 00:02:54.240
  • WHAT HAPPENED IN AMERICA.
  • 00:02:54.240 --> 00:02:56.030
  • WE DON'T TRY TO PUT IN CONTEXT
  • 00:02:56.030 --> 00:02:57.110
  • AND SAY, "WELL, WHAT WAS
  • 00:02:57.110 --> 00:02:58.210
  • THE NATURE OF THE AGE?
  • 00:02:58.210 --> 00:03:00.170
  • WHAT WAS GEORGE WASHINGTON
  • 00:03:00.170 --> 00:03:01.260
  • RAISED LIKE"?
  • 00:03:01.260 --> 00:03:03.020
  • "THEY WERE SLAVE OWNERS!"
  • 00:03:03.020 --> 00:03:05.020
  • AND WE DON'T ASK,
  • 00:03:05.020 --> 00:03:06.070
  • "WELL, WAIT A MINUTE.
  • 00:03:06.070 --> 00:03:08.060
  • IF FROM A CHILD YOU'RE TAUGHT
  • 00:03:08.060 --> 00:03:09.180
  • THIS IS THE WAY OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:03:09.180 --> 00:03:10.250
  • THIS IS THE WAY
  • 00:03:10.250 --> 00:03:12.010
  • GOD INTENDED..."
  • 00:03:12.010 --> 00:03:13.100
  • WE OUGHT TO BE AMAZED
  • 00:03:13.100 --> 00:03:14.110
  • THAT SOME OF THEM WERE ABLE
  • 00:03:14.110 --> 00:03:15.150
  • TO SAY, "WAIT A MINUTE,
  • 00:03:15.150 --> 00:03:16.230
  • SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH THIS."
  • 00:03:16.230 --> 00:03:18.000
  • SO WE DON'T TRY
  • 00:03:18.000 --> 00:03:19.070
  • TO PUT THIS IN CONTEXT
  • 00:03:19.070 --> 00:03:20.150
  • AND THE CHURCH IS WHERE
  • 00:03:20.150 --> 00:03:21.210
  • THAT OUGHT TO HAPPEN
  • 00:03:21.210 --> 00:03:23.000
  • SO THAT WE CAN BEGIN
  • 00:03:23.000 --> 00:03:24.060
  • TO LOOK AT ONE ANOTHER
  • 00:03:24.060 --> 00:03:25.130
  • AS BROTHERS AND SISTERS
  • 00:03:25.130 --> 00:03:26.170
  • IN CHRIST
  • 00:03:26.170 --> 00:03:27.260
  • AND HELP LEAD OUR COUNTRY
  • 00:03:27.260 --> 00:03:29.010
  • PAST THIS STUFF
  • 00:03:29.010 --> 00:03:30.060
  • AS OPPOSED TO CONTINUING
  • 00:03:30.060 --> 00:03:31.100
  • TO WALLOW IN IT.
  • 00:03:31.100 --> 00:03:32.120
  • WHEN YOU ADD, JAMES,
  • 00:03:32.120 --> 00:03:33.200
  • I'LL STOP HERE,
  • 00:03:33.200 --> 00:03:34.260
  • BUT WHEN YOU ADD
  • 00:03:34.260 --> 00:03:36.060
  • A YOUNG MAN GROWING UP
  • 00:03:36.060 --> 00:03:37.130
  • IN A HOME WITHOUT A FATHER,
  • 00:03:37.130 --> 00:03:39.140
  • AND I LIVED IN A FOSTER HOME
  • 00:03:39.140 --> 00:03:40.230
  • FOR THE FIRST TEN YEARS
  • 00:03:40.230 --> 00:03:42.010
  • OF MY LIFE AND I TELL PEOPLE,
  • 00:03:42.010 --> 00:03:43.070
  • I'VE BEEN ON BOTH SIDES OF IT.
  • 00:03:43.070 --> 00:03:44.130
  • I WAS BITTER, I WAS ANGRY,
  • 00:03:44.130 --> 00:03:45.150
  • MY ATTITUDE WAS,
  • 00:03:45.150 --> 00:03:46.220
  • MY FATHER IS NOT HERE
  • 00:03:46.220 --> 00:03:47.280
  • TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO,
  • 00:03:47.280 --> 00:03:49.060
  • YOU'RE NOT TELLING ME
  • 00:03:49.060 --> 00:03:50.120
  • WHAT TO DO.
  • 00:03:50.120 --> 00:03:51.200
  • YOU ADD TO THAT SOMEBODY
  • 00:03:51.200 --> 00:03:52.270
  • SPEAKING INTO THEIR EAR,
  • 00:03:52.270 --> 00:03:54.020
  • "WHITE PEOPLE HAVE DONE...
  • 00:03:54.020 --> 00:03:55.050
  • THEY HELD US IN SLAVERY.
  • 00:03:55.050 --> 00:03:56.120
  • LOOK AT JIM CROW."
  • 00:03:56.120 --> 00:03:58.090
  • AND THEN YOU SPIN A MYTH
  • 00:03:58.090 --> 00:04:00.240
  • THAT POLICE ARE OUT
  • 00:04:00.240 --> 00:04:02.010
  • HUNTING DOWN BLACK MEN,
  • 00:04:02.010 --> 00:04:03.220
  • KILLING THEM INTENTIONALLY
  • 00:04:03.220 --> 00:04:05.110
  • AND THEN BEING PAID
  • 00:04:05.110 --> 00:04:07.160
  • TO GO HOME AND RELAX
  • 00:04:07.160 --> 00:04:08.220
  • FOR A FEW WEEKS.
  • 00:04:08.220 --> 00:04:10.090
  • YOU'VE GOT A FORMULA
  • 00:04:10.090 --> 00:04:11.160
  • WHERE IT BECOMES
  • 00:04:11.160 --> 00:04:12.210
  • VERY, VERY DIFFICULT
  • 00:04:12.210 --> 00:04:13.280
  • TO EVEN GET TO THE ECONOMIC
  • 00:04:13.280 --> 00:04:15.060
  • POLITICAL POLICY ISSUES
  • 00:04:15.090 --> 00:04:18.090
  • THAT WE CAN BEGIN
  • 00:04:18.090 --> 00:04:19.190
  • TO ADDRESS WITH PEOPLE.
  • 00:04:19.190 --> 00:04:20.210
  • SO PLEASE PRAY
  • 00:04:20.210 --> 00:04:21.290
  • FOR FORGIVENESS
  • 00:04:21.290 --> 00:04:23.060
  • IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY
  • 00:04:23.060 --> 00:04:24.110
  • TO TAKE ROOT.
  • 00:04:24.110 --> 00:04:25.190
  • LET ME SAY THIS, BISHOP.
  • 00:04:26.270 --> 00:04:28.160
  • BECAUSE I RECOGNIZE THE NEED
  • 00:04:28.160 --> 00:04:30.060
  • IN THE URBAN COMMUNITY
  • 00:04:30.060 --> 00:04:32.080
  • AND I SEE WHAT MY FRIEND
  • 00:04:32.080 --> 00:04:33.220
  • WITH THE URBAN ALTERNATIVE,
  • 00:04:35.030 --> 00:04:36.250
  • AND HIS DESIRE TO GIVE FATHERS
  • 00:04:36.250 --> 00:04:39.210
  • AND HOW EFFECTIVE IT IS,
  • 00:04:41.190 --> 00:04:42.290
  • BUT I ALSO KNOW
  • 00:04:42.290 --> 00:04:44.110
  • MANY ENTREPRENEURS
  • 00:04:44.110 --> 00:04:45.220
  • IN THE AREA OF SUCCESS
  • 00:04:45.220 --> 00:04:47.070
  • INNER CITY URBAN COMMUNITY
  • 00:04:48.180 --> 00:04:50.030
  • WITH BUSINESSES
  • 00:04:50.030 --> 00:04:51.090
  • BUT HERE IS THEIR RESPONSE.
  • 00:04:51.090 --> 00:04:52.140
  • IF YOUR RESPONSE TO WRONGDOING
  • 00:04:52.140 --> 00:04:53.250
  • IS YOU'RE GOING TO BURN DOWN
  • 00:04:53.250 --> 00:04:55.030
  • THE BUSINESSES THAT ARE THERE,
  • 00:04:55.030 --> 00:04:56.230
  • WHO WANTS TO BRING
  • 00:04:56.230 --> 00:04:57.280
  • A BUSINESS IN?
  • 00:04:57.280 --> 00:04:59.060
  • AND THEN IF YOU HAVE GOT
  • 00:04:59.060 --> 00:05:00.130
  • TO HAVE LAW ENFORCEMENT
  • 00:05:00.130 --> 00:05:01.190
  • AND YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:05:01.190 --> 00:05:02.290
  • TO BUILD A RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:05:02.290 --> 00:05:04.080
  • OF APPRECIATION FOR THEM
  • 00:05:04.080 --> 00:05:05.190
  • AND ITS LACKING AND YOU KNOW
  • 00:05:05.190 --> 00:05:06.290
  • YOU CAN'T SECURE ANYTHING
  • 00:05:06.290 --> 00:05:08.060
  • WITHOUT SOUND LAW ENFORCEMENT
  • 00:05:08.060 --> 00:05:10.070
  • AND YOU KEEP STIRRING
  • 00:05:10.070 --> 00:05:11.250
  • THE TENSION, HOW DO YOU
  • 00:05:11.250 --> 00:05:13.030
  • EVER EXPECT US TO BRING
  • 00:05:13.030 --> 00:05:14.050
  • BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY IN
  • 00:05:14.050 --> 00:05:15.140
  • WHEN THERE IS
  • 00:05:15.140 --> 00:05:16.190
  • NO SECURITY FOR ANYBODY?
  • 00:05:16.190 --> 00:05:17.250
  • AND HOW DO THE KIDS
  • 00:05:17.250 --> 00:05:19.020
  • FEEL GOOD GOING TO SCHOOL
  • 00:05:19.020 --> 00:05:20.100
  • WHEN YOU'RE AFRAID FOR THEM
  • 00:05:20.100 --> 00:05:21.160
  • IN A PUBLIC WAY?
  • 00:05:22.240 --> 00:05:24.010
  • THERE'S GOT TO BE
  • 00:05:24.010 --> 00:05:25.050
  • GOOD LAW ENFORCEMENT.
  • 00:05:25.050 --> 00:05:26.120
  • RIGHT NOW I FEEL LIKE I HEAR
  • 00:05:26.120 --> 00:05:27.190
  • THE PEOPLE CRYING OUT FOR IT
  • 00:05:27.190 --> 00:05:28.230
  • BUT I DON'T HEAR ENOUGH
  • 00:05:28.230 --> 00:05:29.290
  • OR BLACK LEADERS SAYING,
  • 00:05:31.040 --> 00:05:32.070
  • "LET'S HONOR LAW ENFORCEMENT."
  • 00:05:32.070 --> 00:05:34.090
  • WE'VE GOT SOME
  • 00:05:34.090 --> 00:05:35.180
  • WHO HAVE NOT DONE IT RIGHT,
  • 00:05:35.180 --> 00:05:36.260
  • IT'S OBVIOUS.
  • 00:05:36.260 --> 00:05:38.030
  • HARRY JACKSON
  • 00:05:38.030 --> 00:05:39.100
  • YOU POINTED OUT THE FACT
  • 00:05:39.100 --> 00:05:40.150
  • THAT JUSTICE IS NOT EQUAL.
  • 00:05:40.150 --> 00:05:41.180
  • YOU AND I HAVE BEEN WORKING
  • 00:05:41.180 --> 00:05:42.260
  • TOGETHER NOW FOR MANY MONTHS
  • 00:05:42.260 --> 00:05:44.020
  • AND EVEN YEARS, AND BEEN
  • 00:05:44.020 --> 00:05:45.070
  • WORKING WITH T.D. JAKES
  • 00:05:45.070 --> 00:05:46.120
  • AND OTHERS TO SAY
  • 00:05:46.120 --> 00:05:47.160
  • LET'S DO SOMETHING ABOUT
  • 00:05:47.160 --> 00:05:48.280
  • THE UNEQUAL JUSTICE SYSTEM.
  • 00:05:48.280 --> 00:05:50.200
  • BUT WE'VE GOT TO DO IT
  • 00:05:50.200 --> 00:05:51.270
  • WITH INSPIRATIONAL LEADERSHIP
  • 00:05:51.270 --> 00:05:53.250
  • WITHIN THE COMMUNITY
  • 00:05:53.250 --> 00:05:55.120
  • AND WE'VE GOT TO START
  • 00:05:55.120 --> 00:05:56.180
  • BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:05:56.180 --> 00:05:58.010
  • BETWEEN THE NECESSARY PARTS.
  • 00:05:58.010 --> 00:05:59.080
  • YOU CAN'T HAVE LAWLESSNESS --
  • 00:05:59.080 --> 00:06:00.210
  • YOU WILL HAVE IT IF YOU
  • 00:06:00.210 --> 00:06:02.060
  • DON'T HAVE LAW ENFORCEMENT
  • 00:06:02.060 --> 00:06:03.250
  • THAT'S RESPECTED.
  • 00:06:03.250 --> 00:06:05.060
  • SO WE'VE GOT TO BUILD
  • 00:06:05.060 --> 00:06:06.120
  • THIS RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:06:06.120 --> 00:06:07.220
  • I THINK THE STAGE IS SET
  • 00:06:07.220 --> 00:06:08.290
  • NOT FOR MORE RIOTS,
  • 00:06:08.290 --> 00:06:10.080
  • EXCEPT FOR THAT,
  • 00:06:10.080 --> 00:06:11.200
  • BUT FOR AN OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:06:11.200 --> 00:06:13.000
  • TO COME TOGETHER AND DEAL
  • 00:06:13.000 --> 00:06:14.070
  • WITH THE PROBLEM EFFECTIVELY.
  • 00:06:14.070 --> 00:06:15.170
  • THAT'S WHAT I SEE
  • 00:06:15.170 --> 00:06:16.230
  • THE OPPORTUNITY AS PRESENTED
  • 00:06:16.230 --> 00:06:18.020
  • TO ALL OF US TODAY
  • 00:06:18.020 --> 00:06:19.090
  • IF WE CAN JUST GET
  • 00:06:19.090 --> 00:06:20.140
  • THE LEADERS TO STAND UP
  • 00:06:20.140 --> 00:06:21.150
  • AND INSPIRE.
  • 00:06:21.150 --> 00:06:22.170
  • BISHOP JACKSON?
  • 00:06:23.200 --> 00:06:24.210
  • Harry: WELL, I WOULD AGREE.
  • 00:06:24.210 --> 00:06:25.240
  • WE'VE GOT TO HAVE
  • 00:06:25.240 --> 00:06:26.260
  • ALL PEOPLE SPEAK OUT.
  • 00:06:26.260 --> 00:06:27.280
  • WE'VE GOT A LOT MORE
  • 00:06:27.280 --> 00:06:29.030
  • MULTIRACIAL CONGREGATIONS;
  • 00:06:29.030 --> 00:06:30.050
  • HAVE THEM.
  • 00:06:31.170 --> 00:06:32.260
  • BUT WE ALSO HAVE TO HAVE
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:34.070
  • BLACK AND HISPANIC LEADERS
  • 00:06:34.070 --> 00:06:36.260
  • RUN THE RISK OF BEING REJECTED
  • 00:06:37.130 --> 00:06:40.130
  • BY SHARING TRUTH AS WE SEE IT
  • 00:06:41.130 --> 00:06:44.130
  • AND CHALLENGE PEOPLE
  • 00:06:44.130 --> 00:06:45.190
  • TO A KINGDOM MINDSET.
  • 00:06:45.190 --> 00:06:47.280
  • PAUL TALKED ABOUT IN EPHESIANS
  • 00:06:47.280 --> 00:06:50.010
  • THE FACT THAT WE'RE KIND OF
  • 00:06:50.010 --> 00:06:51.190
  • HARDWIRED BY THE CULTURE
  • 00:06:51.190 --> 00:06:54.190
  • TO FOLLOW THE COURSE
  • 00:06:54.190 --> 00:06:56.000
  • OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:06:56.000 --> 00:06:57.110
  • WE'VE GOT TO HAVE
  • 00:06:57.110 --> 00:06:58.210
  • OUR MINDS RENEWED,
  • 00:06:58.210 --> 00:07:00.030
  • AND WE'VE GOT TO PUT OFF
  • 00:07:00.030 --> 00:07:01.140
  • THE OLD MAN, PUT ON THE NEW.
  • 00:07:01.140 --> 00:07:03.000
  • SO YES, WE'VE GOT TO HAVE
  • 00:07:03.000 --> 00:07:05.150
  • SPEAKERS AND LEADERS
  • 00:07:05.180 --> 00:07:08.180
  • BUT THERE IS A LOT TO RISK.
  • 00:07:08.180 --> 00:07:10.000
  • THE THINGS THAT YOU RISK
  • 00:07:10.000 --> 00:07:12.100
  • IF YOU STAND UP, IF YOU'VE
  • 00:07:12.100 --> 00:07:13.210
  • GOT A GREAT TV MINISTRY,
  • 00:07:13.210 --> 00:07:15.080
  • YOU SELL PRODUCTS,
  • 00:07:15.080 --> 00:07:16.230
  • YOU'VE GOT A LARGE NUMBER
  • 00:07:16.230 --> 00:07:18.080
  • OF PEOPLE
  • 00:07:18.080 --> 00:07:19.130
  • IN THE LIBERAL CENTERS
  • 00:07:19.130 --> 00:07:20.220
  • OF THE COUNTRY
  • 00:07:20.220 --> 00:07:22.040
  • WHO WON'T BUY YOUR STUFF,
  • 00:07:22.040 --> 00:07:23.090
  • WHO WON'T GO TO YOUR CHURCH,
  • 00:07:23.090 --> 00:07:24.180
  • WHO WON'T PAY THEIR TITHE
  • 00:07:24.180 --> 00:07:26.020
  • AND THEY'LL ACT OUT.
  • 00:07:26.020 --> 00:07:28.270
  • SO I THINK WE'RE GOING
  • 00:07:28.270 --> 00:07:31.010
  • TO HAVE TO DO THIS TOGETHER.
  • 00:07:31.010 --> 00:07:32.290
  • BELIEVE IT OR NOT, JAMES,
  • 00:07:32.290 --> 00:07:34.170
  • YOUR WORKING WITH BISHOP JAKES
  • 00:07:34.170 --> 00:07:36.080
  • AND I AND OTHERS
  • 00:07:36.080 --> 00:07:37.220
  • IN BIG MEETINGS
  • 00:07:37.220 --> 00:07:39.050
  • HAS LENT MORE CREDIBILITY TO
  • 00:07:39.050 --> 00:07:41.190
  • WHAT WE DO THAN JUST A BUNCH
  • 00:07:41.190 --> 00:07:43.210
  • OF WHINING BLACK PEOPLE
  • 00:07:43.210 --> 00:07:44.280
  • STANDING UP SAYING,
  • 00:07:44.280 --> 00:07:46.150
  • "THEY'VE DONE US WRONG AGAIN!"
  • 00:07:46.150 --> 00:07:49.050
  • SO WE KIND OF GOT TO BE
  • 00:07:49.050 --> 00:07:51.140
  • IN THIS THING TOGETHER.
  • 00:07:51.140 --> 00:07:53.160
  • IF WE ARE WORKING TOGETHER,
  • 00:07:53.200 --> 00:07:56.200
  • AND THEN YES, SOME OF US
  • 00:07:56.200 --> 00:07:58.140
  • BEING BRAVE AND COURAGEOUS,
  • 00:07:58.160 --> 00:08:01.180
  • I KNOW SAMMY CAN TELL YOU
  • 00:08:01.180 --> 00:08:03.100
  • HE DOESN'T BROADCAST THIS
  • 00:08:03.100 --> 00:08:05.150
  • BUT SOME OF THE THINGS
  • 00:08:05.150 --> 00:08:06.260
  • THAT HE SAYS GETS HIM
  • 00:08:06.260 --> 00:08:09.100
  • NICE LITTLE LOVE NOTES.
  • 00:08:09.100 --> 00:08:11.050
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:08:11.050 --> 00:08:12.190
  • -- AND THREATS TO REARRANGE
  • 00:08:12.190 --> 00:08:15.010
  • CERTAIN BODY PARTS.
  • 00:08:15.010 --> 00:08:16.240
  • THAT KIND OF COURAGE IS NEEDED
  • 00:08:18.080 --> 00:08:21.080
  • AND SHOULDN'T BE MINIMIZED.
  • 00:08:21.080 --> 00:08:23.220
  • Ravi: I'LL TELL YOU
  • 00:08:23.220 --> 00:08:24.290
  • IN THE LAST TEN YEARS I'VE
  • 00:08:24.290 --> 00:08:26.100
  • WHETHER IT IS HARVARD
  • 00:08:28.080 --> 00:08:29.150
  • OR PRINCETON OR YALE OR OXFORD
  • 00:08:29.150 --> 00:08:30.240
  • OR CAMBRIDGE, WHEREVER,
  • 00:08:30.240 --> 00:08:32.120
  • UNIVERSITY OF JAKARTA
  • 00:08:32.120 --> 00:08:33.260
  • THERE WOULD BE 300 STUDENTS
  • 00:08:35.080 --> 00:08:36.160
  • FOR THE OPEN FORUM
  • 00:08:36.160 --> 00:08:37.190
  • ON A COMPARISON BETWEEN CHRIST
  • 00:08:37.190 --> 00:08:39.010
  • AND MOHAMMED
  • 00:08:39.010 --> 00:08:40.080
  • THERE WERE OVER 3.000;
  • 00:08:40.080 --> 00:08:41.170
  • UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY,
  • 00:08:41.170 --> 00:08:42.280
  • ON A WEEKNIGHT, 7.000.
  • 00:08:42.280 --> 00:08:44.250
  • WHY AM I SAYING THIS?
  • 00:08:44.250 --> 00:08:46.020
  • -- TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:08:46.020 --> 00:08:48.120
  • THE POLITICAL LIFE.
  • 00:08:50.000 --> 00:08:51.050
  • WE'VE GOT TO PREPARE THEM.
  • 00:08:51.050 --> 00:08:52.120
  • THERE'S ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT
  • 00:08:52.120 --> 00:08:53.180
  • WE'RE NOT GOING
  • 00:08:53.180 --> 00:08:54.290
  • THE UNIVERSITY OF UPPSALA
  • 00:08:56.090 --> 00:08:57.120
  • IN SWEDEN HAS ON
  • 00:08:57.120 --> 00:08:58.180
  • THE DOOR THESE WORDS:
  • 00:08:58.180 --> 00:08:59.240
  • "TO THINK FREELY IS GREAT,
  • 00:08:59.240 --> 00:09:02.130
  • TO THINK RIGHTLY IS GREATER."
  • 00:09:02.130 --> 00:09:04.260
  • "TO THINK FREELY IS GREAT,
  • 00:09:04.260 --> 00:09:06.140
  • TO THINK RIGHTLY IS GREATER."
  • 00:09:06.140 --> 00:09:08.070
  • WE TOOK A SURVEY
  • 00:09:08.070 --> 00:09:09.210
  • ON THE STUDENTS
  • 00:09:09.210 --> 00:09:11.000
  • BEFORE WE WENT THERE
  • 00:09:11.000 --> 00:09:12.050
  • AND IT WAS A PACKED HOUSE;
  • 00:09:12.050 --> 00:09:13.120
  • MORE THAN 50% OF THEM
  • 00:09:13.120 --> 00:09:14.170
  • DISAGREED WITH THEIR OWN MOTO.
  • 00:09:14.170 --> 00:09:16.220
  • THEY WOULD RATHER THINK
  • 00:09:16.220 --> 00:09:18.000
  • FREELY THAN THINK RIGHTLY.
  • 00:09:18.000 --> 00:09:19.130
  • SO ON THE OPENING NIGHT
  • 00:09:19.130 --> 00:09:20.190
  • I STOOD UP AND SAID,
  • 00:09:20.190 --> 00:09:21.240
  • "I DO HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU.
  • 00:09:21.240 --> 00:09:23.070
  • IN RATHER BEING FREE
  • 00:09:23.070 --> 00:09:24.140
  • THAN RIGHT
  • 00:09:24.140 --> 00:09:25.210
  • DO YOU THINK YOU ARE RIGHT?"
  • 00:09:26.090 --> 00:09:29.090
  • IT WAS JUST SORT OF A PAUSE
  • 00:09:29.090 --> 00:09:30.240
  • AND THEN A WAVE OF LAUGHTER
  • 00:09:30.240 --> 00:09:32.160
  • WENT OVER.
  • 00:09:32.160 --> 00:09:33.240
  • WHAT I THINK
  • 00:09:33.240 --> 00:09:35.020
  • THEY WERE REALLY SAYING IS,
  • 00:09:35.020 --> 00:09:36.050
  • THEY'RE APATHETIC.
  • 00:09:36.050 --> 00:09:38.110
  • THEY REALLY ARE INDIFFERENT
  • 00:09:38.110 --> 00:09:40.000
  • TO THESE THINGS.
  • 00:09:40.000 --> 00:09:41.160
  • TO YOU, AS BROTHERS
  • 00:09:41.160 --> 00:09:42.290
  • AND SISTERS IN CHRIST,
  • 00:09:42.290 --> 00:09:44.110
  • ESPECIALLY TO
  • 00:09:44.110 --> 00:09:45.270
  • THE HISPANIC COMMUNITY, THE
  • 00:09:45.270 --> 00:09:47.040
  • AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY,
  • 00:09:47.040 --> 00:09:48.100
  • THE ASIAN COMMUNITY,
  • 00:09:48.100 --> 00:09:49.180
  • WE'VE GOT TO REACH OUR YOUNG
  • 00:09:49.180 --> 00:09:52.040
  • TO BECOME FACULTY MEMBERS
  • 00:09:52.040 --> 00:09:54.220
  • AND EDUCATORS.
  • 00:09:54.220 --> 00:09:56.060
  • WHAT WE'VE SEEN
  • 00:09:56.060 --> 00:09:57.160
  • IN THE LAST FEW YEARS
  • 00:09:57.160 --> 00:09:59.040
  • IS THE RELATIVISTIC IDEOLOGY
  • 00:09:59.040 --> 00:10:02.020
  • OF IVY LEAGUE SCHOOLS
  • 00:10:02.020 --> 00:10:03.280
  • AND PROFESSORIAL LECTERNS
  • 00:10:03.280 --> 00:10:05.170
  • JUST BEING SPREAD AROUND
  • 00:10:05.170 --> 00:10:07.000
  • AS AN ABSOLUTE.
  • 00:10:07.000 --> 00:10:08.110
  • WE WILL NEVER CHANGE
  • 00:10:08.110 --> 00:10:09.270
  • THIS LANDSCAPE
  • 00:10:09.270 --> 00:10:11.180
  • IF WE DON'T GET
  • 00:10:11.180 --> 00:10:12.270
  • THE RIGHT THINKING PEOPLE
  • 00:10:12.270 --> 00:10:15.020
  • IN POSITIONS THAT
  • 00:10:15.020 --> 00:10:16.150
  • AFFECTS STUDENT BODIES.
  • 00:10:16.150 --> 00:10:17.260
  • WHAT I'VE LEARNED IS
  • 00:10:17.260 --> 00:10:19.020
  • NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY
  • 00:10:19.020 --> 00:10:20.070
  • FIGHT YOU BEFORE YOU COME
  • 00:10:20.070 --> 00:10:21.260
  • IT WAS I THINK AT U PENN,
  • 00:10:21.260 --> 00:10:23.280
  • OR CARNEGIE MELLON,
  • 00:10:23.280 --> 00:10:25.160
  • ONE OF THE TWO,
  • 00:10:25.160 --> 00:10:26.280
  • BUT THEY WERE TRYING
  • 00:10:26.280 --> 00:10:28.060
  • TO STOP OUR COMING
  • 00:10:28.060 --> 00:10:29.090
  • AND ALL THAT DOES
  • 00:10:29.090 --> 00:10:30.140
  • IS BUILD A BIGGER AUDIENCE.
  • 00:10:30.140 --> 00:10:31.190
  • SO THE PLACE WAS PACKED.
  • 00:10:31.190 --> 00:10:32.240
  • AND AT THE END OF IT
  • 00:10:32.240 --> 00:10:33.280
  • THE VICE PRESIDENT
  • 00:10:33.280 --> 00:10:35.050
  • OF THE HUMANISTIC ASSOCIATION
  • 00:10:35.050 --> 00:10:36.110
  • WALKED UP TO THE MICROPHONE
  • 00:10:36.110 --> 00:10:37.140
  • AND HE SAID, "I WANT
  • 00:10:37.140 --> 00:10:38.180
  • TO THANK YOU FOR COMING."
  • 00:10:38.180 --> 00:10:40.000
  • HE APOLOGIZED FOR EVERYTHING
  • 00:10:40.000 --> 00:10:41.090
  • THAT PRECEDED BECAUSE
  • 00:10:41.090 --> 00:10:42.210
  • I BEGAN BY TELLING THEM,
  • 00:10:42.210 --> 00:10:43.280
  • "I'M NOT HERE TO CHANGE
  • 00:10:43.280 --> 00:10:45.050
  • YOUR MIND ON ANYTHING,
  • 00:10:45.050 --> 00:10:46.150
  • BUT I AM HERE TO TELL YOU
  • 00:10:46.150 --> 00:10:47.270
  • THERE IS SOMEBODY
  • 00:10:47.270 --> 00:10:49.040
  • WHO CAN CHANGE YOUR MIND.
  • 00:10:49.040 --> 00:10:50.140
  • AND I WANT TO TALK TO YOU
  • 00:10:50.140 --> 00:10:51.210
  • ABOUT THOSE ISSUES
  • 00:10:51.210 --> 00:10:52.270
  • AND CAN WE INTERACT ON IT?"
  • 00:10:52.270 --> 00:10:54.020
  • WE HAVE TO GET THE CHURCH
  • 00:10:54.020 --> 00:10:56.020
  • INTO THE ACADEMIC SETTING
  • 00:10:56.020 --> 00:10:58.160
  • BECAUSE FROM THERE WE DEVELOP
  • 00:10:58.160 --> 00:11:00.040
  • OUR POLITICAL LEADERSHIP
  • 00:11:00.040 --> 00:11:01.160
  • AND OUR CULTURAL ETHOS
  • 00:11:01.160 --> 00:11:03.170
  • HAS DEVELOPED.
  • 00:11:03.170 --> 00:11:04.230
  • SO THINK YOUNG;
  • 00:11:04.230 --> 00:11:05.280
  • THINK OF THE YOUNG,
  • 00:11:05.280 --> 00:11:07.070
  • EVEN THE 13, 14, 15 YEAR OLDS
  • 00:11:07.070 --> 00:11:09.100
  • WHO ARE REALLY ASKING
  • 00:11:09.100 --> 00:11:10.230
  • GOOD QUESTIONS.
  • 00:11:10.230 --> 00:11:11.290
  • ONCE THEY RESPECT THAT
  • 00:11:11.290 --> 00:11:13.080
  • THERE'S A CONNECTION BETWEEN
  • 00:11:13.080 --> 00:11:14.180
  • YOUR HEAD AND YOUR HEART THEY
  • 00:11:14.180 --> 00:11:15.290
  • WILL LISTEN MORE CAREFULLY
  • 00:11:15.290 --> 00:11:17.070
  • AND THEY GET INTO THE ARENA
  • 00:11:17.070 --> 00:11:18.180
  • TO CHANGE THE WORLD.
  • 00:11:18.180 --> 00:11:19.270
  • FRANCIS SCHAEFFER
  • 00:11:19.270 --> 00:11:21.080
  • SAID IT IN THE 1980'S.
  • 00:11:21.080 --> 00:11:22.170
  • HE SAID, "WE'RE LOSING!
  • 00:11:22.170 --> 00:11:24.000
  • WE'RE LOSING THE ACADEMY
  • 00:11:24.000 --> 00:11:25.150
  • AND IF WE DON'T GET BACK
  • 00:11:25.150 --> 00:11:26.260
  • INTO THE ACADEMY WE'RE GOING
  • 00:11:26.260 --> 00:11:28.040
  • TO LOSE THE CULTURE."
  • 00:11:28.040 --> 00:11:29.100
  • I THINK THAT TIME HAS COME.
  • 00:11:29.100 --> 00:11:30.170
  • WE HAVE TO GET BACK
  • 00:11:30.170 --> 00:11:31.270
  • INTO THE ACADEMY
  • 00:11:31.270 --> 00:11:33.030
  • TO PREPARE OUR YOUNG
  • 00:11:33.030 --> 00:11:34.090
  • TO DO ELECTORSHIPS OUT THERE.
  • 00:11:34.090 --> 00:11:35.160
  • [Applause]
  • 00:11:36.090 --> 00:11:39.090
  • Jack Graham: WE LEARN A LOT
  • 00:11:39.090 --> 00:11:40.200
  • BY LISTENING
  • 00:11:40.200 --> 00:11:41.290
  • I'M HEARING EVERYONE
  • 00:11:43.240 --> 00:11:45.060
  • WHO HAS SPOKEN.
  • 00:11:45.060 --> 00:11:47.010
  • BASICALLY, IT ALL RIDES
  • 00:11:47.010 --> 00:11:48.080
  • WHEN WE GET TOGETHER,
  • 00:11:50.060 --> 00:11:51.290
  • WHEN WE ACTUALLY TALK
  • 00:11:51.290 --> 00:11:53.060
  • TO EACH OTHER INSTEAD OF
  • 00:11:53.060 --> 00:11:54.120
  • TALKING ABOUT EACH OTHER,
  • 00:11:54.120 --> 00:11:55.270
  • LIVES GET CHANGED
  • 00:11:55.270 --> 00:11:57.030
  • AND CHURCHES GET CHANGED
  • 00:11:57.030 --> 00:11:58.100
  • AND THE COUNTRY GETS CHANGED.
  • 00:11:58.100 --> 00:11:59.150
  • BUT I WAS THINKING
  • 00:11:59.150 --> 00:12:00.280
  • AS YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:12:00.280 --> 00:12:02.030
  • THE JUSTICE ISSUES
  • 00:12:02.030 --> 00:12:03.050
  • AND THE RACIAL ISSUES,
  • 00:12:03.050 --> 00:12:04.130
  • I GUESS I GREW UP
  • 00:12:04.130 --> 00:12:06.000
  • WITH EVERY OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:12:06.000 --> 00:12:07.140
  • TO BE A RACIST BECAUSE
  • 00:12:07.140 --> 00:12:10.040
  • I GREW UP IN A LITTLE TOWN,
  • 00:12:10.040 --> 00:12:12.070
  • I WAS A CHILD IN THE 50'S,
  • 00:12:13.190 --> 00:12:16.070
  • 30 MILES NORTH
  • 00:12:16.070 --> 00:12:17.180
  • OF LITTLE ROCK,
  • 00:12:17.180 --> 00:12:18.270
  • WHICH WAS GRAND ZERO
  • 00:12:18.270 --> 00:12:20.120
  • IN THE LATE 1950'S
  • 00:12:20.120 --> 00:12:21.200
  • AND CLOSING THE SCHOOL
  • 00:12:22.250 --> 00:12:24.020
  • AND THE INTEGRATION ISSUE,
  • 00:12:24.020 --> 00:12:25.250
  • SEGREGATION.
  • 00:12:25.250 --> 00:12:27.030
  • SO THAT WAS MY FAMILY.
  • 00:12:27.030 --> 00:12:28.120
  • NOW MY FAMILY WAS NOT
  • 00:12:28.120 --> 00:12:29.190
  • A RACIST FAMILY
  • 00:12:29.190 --> 00:12:30.230
  • BUT WE CERTAINLY HAD
  • 00:12:30.230 --> 00:12:31.290
  • OUR PREJUDICES AND BIASES.
  • 00:12:31.290 --> 00:12:33.050
  • I NEVER WENT TO SCHOOL
  • 00:12:33.050 --> 00:12:34.180
  • WITH A PERSON
  • 00:12:34.180 --> 00:12:35.230
  • OTHER THAN A WHITE PERSON
  • 00:12:35.230 --> 00:12:37.140
  • UNTIL I WENT TO COLLEGE;
  • 00:12:37.140 --> 00:12:39.190
  • THAT SOUNDS LIKE
  • 00:12:39.190 --> 00:12:41.060
  • I'M A DINOSAUR FROM THAT ERA
  • 00:12:41.060 --> 00:12:42.220
  • BUT IT IS TRUE.
  • 00:12:42.220 --> 00:12:44.000
  • MANY OF US, WE DID NOT
  • 00:12:44.000 --> 00:12:45.100
  • GROW UP KNOWING EACH OTHER.
  • 00:12:46.020 --> 00:12:49.020
  • OUR CHURCHES WERE SEGREGATED.
  • 00:12:49.020 --> 00:12:50.220
  • LIFE WAS SEGREGATED.
  • 00:12:51.240 --> 00:12:54.240
  • SO BECAUSE OF THAT, BECAUSE
  • 00:12:54.240 --> 00:12:56.270
  • WE DIDN'T KNOW EACH OTHER
  • 00:12:56.270 --> 00:12:59.240
  • WE DIDN'T SHARE THE GOSPEL
  • 00:12:59.240 --> 00:13:01.120
  • WITH EACH OTHER,
  • 00:13:01.120 --> 00:13:02.180
  • WE DIDN'T SERVE ONE ANOTHER
  • 00:13:02.180 --> 00:13:04.010
  • AND OUR WHOLE LIVES
  • 00:13:04.010 --> 00:13:06.130
  • WERE SILOED.
  • 00:13:08.200 --> 00:13:11.200
  • WHEN I WAS A LITTLE BOY THERE
  • 00:13:11.200 --> 00:13:13.020
  • WAS A TELEVISION PROGRAM
  • 00:13:13.020 --> 00:13:14.170
  • WITH BISHOP FULTON J. SHEEN.
  • 00:13:17.080 --> 00:13:20.080
  • WE ROLLED OUT
  • 00:13:20.080 --> 00:13:21.160
  • THE 1954 PHILCO TELEVISION
  • 00:13:21.160 --> 00:13:23.090
  • AND IT WAS EARLY
  • 00:13:23.090 --> 00:13:24.180
  • PRIMITIVE TELEVISION.
  • 00:13:24.180 --> 00:13:25.260
  • THERE WAS A DARK SCREEN
  • 00:13:25.260 --> 00:13:27.050
  • AND A HAND AND A MATCH
  • 00:13:27.110 --> 00:13:30.110
  • AND A LIGHT AND A CANDLE LIT.
  • 00:13:31.050 --> 00:13:34.050
  • AND THE VOICE OVER,
  • 00:13:34.050 --> 00:13:35.160
  • IT WAS A RATHER
  • 00:13:35.160 --> 00:13:36.250
  • CREEPY KIND OF VOICE OVER,
  • 00:13:36.250 --> 00:13:38.180
  • "BETTER TO LIGHT A CANDLE
  • 00:13:39.000 --> 00:13:42.000
  • THAN TO CURSE THE DARKNESS."
  • 00:13:42.270 --> 00:13:45.270
  • AND AS A LITTLE GUY
  • 00:13:45.270 --> 00:13:48.200
  • THAT GOT INTO MY HEART.
  • 00:13:48.200 --> 00:13:51.140
  • "BETTER TO LIGHT A CANDLE
  • 00:13:51.140 --> 00:13:52.250
  • THAN TO CURSE THE DARKNESS."
  • 00:13:52.250 --> 00:13:55.140
  • I LATER LEARNED
  • 00:13:55.140 --> 00:13:56.220
  • THAT THAT'S IN THE BIBLE,
  • 00:13:56.220 --> 00:13:57.260
  • NOT PER SE BUT WHEN PAUL SAID,
  • 00:13:57.260 --> 00:13:59.110
  • "OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD."
  • 00:14:00.040 --> 00:14:03.040
  • SO LATER ON
  • 00:14:03.040 --> 00:14:04.150
  • WHEN I WAS CALLED TO PREACH
  • 00:14:04.150 --> 00:14:06.160
  • AND BECAME A PREACHER
  • 00:14:06.160 --> 00:14:07.270
  • AT A YOUNG AGE
  • 00:14:07.270 --> 00:14:09.080
  • THAT WAS IN MY HEART.
  • 00:14:09.080 --> 00:14:12.010
  • BUT IN 1970,
  • 00:14:12.010 --> 00:14:13.180
  • AS A COLLEGE STUDENT
  • 00:14:13.180 --> 00:14:14.260
  • I WAS ACTUALLY PREACHING
  • 00:14:14.260 --> 00:14:16.060
  • A STUDENT REVIVAL,
  • 00:14:16.060 --> 00:14:17.110
  • I GOT WORD THAT MY FATHER
  • 00:14:17.110 --> 00:14:18.200
  • HAD BEEN SEVERELY INJURED
  • 00:14:18.200 --> 00:14:19.280
  • IN FORT WORTH, TEXAS.
  • 00:14:19.280 --> 00:14:21.150
  • AND HE HAD BEEN BLUDGEONED
  • 00:14:21.150 --> 00:14:22.270
  • WITH A HAMMER AND HE WAS IN
  • 00:14:24.070 --> 00:14:27.070
  • AN INTENSIVE CARE UNIT
  • 00:14:27.070 --> 00:14:28.230
  • AT THE HOSPITAL.
  • 00:14:28.230 --> 00:14:29.290
  • WE DROVE DOWN.
  • 00:14:29.290 --> 00:14:31.030
  • IT'S A LONG STORY.
  • 00:14:31.030 --> 00:14:32.070
  • BUT WE GOT THERE
  • 00:14:32.070 --> 00:14:33.120
  • AND HE DIED 10 DAYS LATER,
  • 00:14:33.120 --> 00:14:35.010
  • NEVER RECOVERING
  • 00:14:35.010 --> 00:14:36.050
  • FROM THOSE WOUNDS.
  • 00:14:36.080 --> 00:14:39.080
  • IT HAPPENED TO BE A BLACK MAN
  • 00:14:40.010 --> 00:14:43.010
  • THAT BEAT MY FATHER TO DEATH.
  • 00:14:44.150 --> 00:14:47.150
  • NOW I HAD A CHOICE
  • 00:14:47.150 --> 00:14:48.270
  • AT THAT POINT.
  • 00:14:48.270 --> 00:14:50.190
  • I COULD BLAME A RACE,
  • 00:14:50.190 --> 00:14:51.250
  • A PEOPLE.
  • 00:14:51.250 --> 00:14:54.010
  • I COULD BECOME BITTER
  • 00:14:54.010 --> 00:14:55.150
  • AND ANGRY
  • 00:14:55.150 --> 00:14:56.230
  • FOR THE REST OF MY DAYS.
  • 00:14:56.230 --> 00:14:58.230
  • OR RATHER THAN CURSE
  • 00:14:58.230 --> 00:15:00.290
  • THE DARKNESS,
  • 00:15:00.290 --> 00:15:02.280
  • I COULD LIGHT A LIGHT.
  • 00:15:02.280 --> 00:15:05.180
  • I REMEMBER
  • 00:15:05.180 --> 00:15:06.270
  • GOING DOWN THAT NIGHT
  • 00:15:06.270 --> 00:15:08.040
  • TO THE LITTLE CHAPEL
  • 00:15:08.040 --> 00:15:10.120
  • IN THE HOSPITAL.
  • 00:15:10.120 --> 00:15:11.160
  • THANK GOD
  • 00:15:11.160 --> 00:15:12.240
  • FOR THOSE LITTLE CHAPELS
  • 00:15:12.240 --> 00:15:14.000
  • THAT PEOPLE CAN PRAY,
  • 00:15:14.000 --> 00:15:15.080
  • I'VE BEEN THERE.
  • 00:15:15.080 --> 00:15:16.150
  • I JUST LAID OUT
  • 00:15:16.150 --> 00:15:17.210
  • BEFORE THE LORD;
  • 00:15:17.210 --> 00:15:18.250
  • NO ONE WAS THERE.
  • 00:15:18.250 --> 00:15:20.000
  • I CAN'T TELL YOU EXACTLY WHAT
  • 00:15:20.000 --> 00:15:21.050
  • I KNOW THE PRESENCE OF GOD,
  • 00:15:22.100 --> 00:15:24.250
  • HIS HAND WAS UPON
  • 00:15:24.250 --> 00:15:26.010
  • THIS YOUNG PREACHER.
  • 00:15:26.010 --> 00:15:28.060
  • MY FIST IN HATRED
  • 00:15:29.140 --> 00:15:30.170
  • AND ANGER TOWARDS ANYONE
  • 00:15:30.170 --> 00:15:33.110
  • GOD SPOKE TO ME AND SAID,
  • 00:15:33.110 --> 00:15:34.210
  • "SPEND THE REST OF YOUR DAYS
  • 00:15:34.210 --> 00:15:36.130
  • PREACHING THE GOSPEL,
  • 00:15:36.130 --> 00:15:37.160
  • TURNING ON THE LIGHT,
  • 00:15:37.160 --> 00:15:39.180
  • AND TRYING TO HELP PEOPLE
  • 00:15:39.180 --> 00:15:40.260
  • WHO HAVE SO MUCH HATRED
  • 00:15:40.260 --> 00:15:42.030
  • IN THEIR HEART,
  • 00:15:42.030 --> 00:15:43.120
  • WHATEVER THEIR RACE,
  • 00:15:43.120 --> 00:15:44.210
  • BUT TRY TO HELP PEOPLE
  • 00:15:44.210 --> 00:15:45.280
  • WHO HAVE SO MUCH HATRED
  • 00:15:45.280 --> 00:15:47.040
  • IN THEIR HEART
  • 00:15:47.040 --> 00:15:48.100
  • THAT THEY WOULD ACTUALLY
  • 00:15:48.100 --> 00:15:49.130
  • BEAT ANOTHER MAN TO DEATH."
  • 00:15:49.130 --> 00:15:51.100
  • MY FATHER WAS MY HERO
  • 00:15:51.100 --> 00:15:53.210
  • AND I'LL NEVER FORGET IT.
  • 00:15:53.210 --> 00:15:54.280
  • I MEAN I TREMBLE
  • 00:15:54.280 --> 00:15:56.040
  • TO THINK ABOUT IT
  • 00:15:56.040 --> 00:15:57.110
  • AND TALK ABOUT IT TODAY
  • 00:15:57.110 --> 00:15:58.190
  • BUT GOD DID SOMETHING
  • 00:15:58.190 --> 00:15:59.260
  • IN MY LIFE THAT DAY,
  • 00:15:59.260 --> 00:16:01.050
  • TO THIS LITTLE WHITE BOY
  • 00:16:01.050 --> 00:16:02.120
  • FROM THE SOUTH
  • 00:16:02.120 --> 00:16:03.190
  • THAT CHANGED MY PERSPECTIVE
  • 00:16:03.190 --> 00:16:05.290
  • ON EVERYTHING.
  • 00:16:05.290 --> 00:16:08.050
  • I KNOW THIS, THE GOSPEL IS
  • 00:16:08.050 --> 00:16:10.190
  • THE GOSPEL OF RECONCILIATION.
  • 00:16:10.190 --> 00:16:13.130
  • AND THERE IS NO ROOM,
  • 00:16:13.130 --> 00:16:14.240
  • IF YOUR HEART
  • 00:16:14.240 --> 00:16:16.020
  • IS HEADQUARTERS FOR HATE,
  • 00:16:16.020 --> 00:16:17.250
  • James: I KNOW
  • 00:16:20.220 --> 00:16:21.270
  • YOU'VE BEEN BLESSED.
  • 00:16:21.270 --> 00:16:22.290
  • FATHER, I JUST
  • 00:16:22.290 --> 00:16:24.030
  • WANT TO THANK YOU
  • 00:16:24.030 --> 00:16:25.070
  • FOR THESE MEN AND WOMEN
  • 00:16:25.070 --> 00:16:26.120
  • A DEEP HEARTFELT CONCERN
  • 00:16:27.200 --> 00:16:28.290
  • FOR OUR FUTURE,
  • 00:16:28.290 --> 00:16:30.120
  • FOR OUR FREEDOM,
  • 00:16:30.120 --> 00:16:32.160
  • FOR THE BLESSINGS
  • 00:16:32.160 --> 00:16:34.030
  • THAT WE'VE NOT ONLY ENJOYED
  • 00:16:34.030 --> 00:16:35.240
  • BUT WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO SHARE.
  • 00:16:35.240 --> 00:16:38.040
  • LORD, HELP US
  • 00:16:38.040 --> 00:16:39.100
  • MAKE WISE DECISIONS,
  • 00:16:39.100 --> 00:16:40.130
  • PLEASE HEAL OUR LAND;
  • 00:16:40.130 --> 00:16:41.230
  • IN JESUS' NAME.
  • 00:16:41.230 --> 00:16:43.160
  • I SURE DO LOVE YOU.
