About Temple3

Reading is fundamental, and writing (γλύφειν) is sacred (ἱερός).


Practice, practice, practice.

An elderly woman of faith with a fondness for singing, usually louder than anyone in earshot can stand, is riding alone on the subway in New York City.  As she sits enjoying the ride and humming to herself, she notices two men coming toward her.  The men are less than half her age and their intentions are not good.  The woman never stops singing — and the men keep coming.

The woman knows that the moment of truth is near, but she is unafraid.  As the men are almost upon her, she leaps to her feet, opens her coat and screams, “Sick ’em Jesus! Sick ’em Jesus!!”

The men look at her in amazement.  They look at one another — and turn and run away.

True story — related by an elder in my family.

Faith is a bottomless reserve that can sustain us in the darkest hour.  Whatever your particular faith, it is well worth remembering that the moment of truth is not the moment of doom…it is the moment of truth.  Speak your truth and live your truth.

This blog is my truth.  Enjoy, contribute, speak and live.

  1. Hey brother, I just wanted to stop by and say thank you. A couple of years back you mentioned Harold Cruse in passing and your recommendation stuck in my mind, so just recently I decided to start reading his works. I’m sad that it’s taken me so long to discover him, but I’m glad that I ultimately did. After reading “The Crisis of the Negro Intellectual” and “Plural But Equal”, it’s like a fog has lifted from my mind, and I wanted you to know that.

  2. Thank you Malik for following up. Don’t feel bad about the timing. Sometimes we can only pick up a book when we’re ready to HEAR what the author is saying. I had to read Cruse more than once for it to sink in — and sometimes I forget and have to pick it up again.

    All the best.
