from 2014, a Remix of the Unification
“The Destiny of Man is to unite, not to divide.
If you keep on dividing you end up as a
collection of monkeys throwing nuts at each
other out of separate trees.” – T.H. White

THE UNIFICATION OF GOD
by Kendall F. Person
Say the name of God and silence will fall across the room or tension will fill the air or blood will boil beyond repair. Call out the name of Allah and all bets are off. Mention in a social discussion that you believe man is the driving force, and the word heathen symbolically surrounds your aura.
I have neither the credentials nor the knowledge nor the presumed pedigree to cast judgement on whatever you believe. I believe in God, but to religions I do not practice, that very well may not be enough. There are rules to follow in order to reach salvation, and it matters not if the rules were directed by the apostles or by the founders of the church, damned to eternal brimstone and fire, if the rules are not obeyed. Say the name of God and if we are not around others of a similar persuasion, count the seconds until the room starts to squirm.
It matters not to whom we pray, prayer at the wrong time of day or not said in the right way will not be answered anyway. And the evolutionist say, prayers have no chance of being heard because God does not exist for there is only man. Say the name of God and the crowd will thin. Avoiding confrontation but saving the good word for only them. Those who stick around, roll up our sleeves and prepare to throw down. There is only one way to reach the promised land – we honestly believe – giving no credence to our brethren who believe in the one way that they seek.
Say the name of God and be ridiculed as blasphemy, for in some Religions only a chosen few can communicate directly with Thee. It does not matter to modern man that most believe in peace, and many have tried to do the right thing. Walk this way or be doomed. Seven hail marys or be consumed. Pray facing the east, church on Sundays, the Book of Mormon, the Holy Bible or the Qur’an. Buddha, Jehovah, Yahweh or Christ, shout out the wrong name and lightning may strike twice.
A Higher Power or spiritual force is meant to be a unifying being and comforting source. A House of Worship should welcome the sick and downtrodden, not turn away sinners of whom man has deemed rotten. Say the name of God, then live by the sword if I be lifted up, I will draw men unto myself to lift the name of Jesus for there is tranquility within ourselves when we practice what we preach.
On April 1st, just say “Hello.”
As the resistance coalesces in turning back the tide of ugly, and as the Kids in Florida continue to inspire, and as the MeToo Movement finds a fighter in Stormy, and as Southern Black Voters flip the script on repression, and as the Dreamers redefine America first as perseverance, and as the courageous Public Servants hold the wrecking balls at bay, and as community leaders nationwide, rise to the occasion, The Neighborhood remains steadfast in ratcheting up a literary defiance to the harm of truth.
On April 1st – WIN or LOSE – we rejoin the journey with an agenda set by you. And on Day 1 of our 6th Season – the search for the butterfly begins.
