An amazing singer, writer and musician has passed away . . . and I’m guessing most of you have never heard of him . . . Mr. Charles Bradley. He had soul. He sang soul. In his words, “He was a brother who came from the hard licks of life.”
When I heard of his passing today, I thought of his CD — Changes. Buy it. I think you’ll like it. His voice moved me. It might move you too.
Our nation is deeply divided right now, and we have forces at work in the world that are diminishing people of color and trying to reassert a culture of white supremacy. It has to stop. It must stop. It runs counter to everything I believe to be true about the vision of Jesus Christ, moreover, it runs counter to everything I believe to be true about humanity.
Have our better angels gone into hiding?
If only the whole country could listen to Charles Bradley for a few minutes today . . . it might just change us all. Take a Breath today. But don’t just take a breath . . . give thanks for Charles Bradley . . . musician, writer, and performer. Live with some soul this week. Oh how the world needs more soul!
