For too long the organization known as the church has practiced and postured on issues that are not new to God in an effort to control lives and dictate salvation. Misinterpreting a tenet of Christianity that teaches that you have to study to show yourself approved, the church has caused many to run to individuals that have secured man-made credentials to identify what saith the Lord for their lives, ignoring the true intent and purpose of that tenet and thus leaving their followers unsatisfied or unfulfilled. This is because their salvation is no longer with Jesus, but with an organization, its “experts,” and its protocols that demand solidarity.
Inspired by a life of trials, tribulations, and exultations, Richard Brown’s debut is a raucous, soul-lifting testimony to the personal power of faith, God’s power to heal, and the unconditional love God brings to your life if you believe in God’s word above all others. A powerful commentary on a Christian life lived as an African-American man, the author reminds us all that the Joy of the Lord is where true strength lies, that despite all the organized and individual negativity, one can still stand in Jesus and be assured Grace, Mercy, and Peace. Based on the Christian perspective, Richard emphasizes that God uses who He chooses, that circumstance does not decide fate, and that ALL things are of Christ and of ALL things He consists. Containing meditations that have helped him over every obstacle and through every battle, Richard Brown delivers the opportunity to stop the madness of exclusion and go forth and preach, teach, and show Christ-like love for all.
A powerful and liberating journey of faith and redemption, Richard Brown’s story is a rediscovery of Christian truths seemingly long forgotten. Repudiating the exclusionary and marginalizing nature of organized Christianity, Sunday Morning: A Testimony of Life is a celebration of God that will change your life forever—if you have the courage to let it.
