A Month of Red Hearts and Chocolate, a Poem

BaptismHe is our Lord as well,

From days and night of ancient old

to now even in the twenty eight days

raining red hearts and chocolate

we chocolate, we smooth, we bitter

scarlet letters mean much to us

we holler, we stomp, we shout

We know what He’s all about

And  we know evil

became a part of the Plan too.

And we’re here.

We’re here.

*Poem by Erica

Here are a couple of things I learned this week, please check out these links and remember that Black History is everyone’s history too.

Heard of Phyllis Wheatley? She wrote poems on morality and religion even though her  life was definitely not filled with roses. Find out why.

Find out why George Lisle is so important to church history and black history at the same time!
