Scripture
I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. —Psalm 104:33

Wisdom
I believe that James Brown teaches us how to read scripture using the Jazz methodology. Learn how to read scripture out loud. Read it with different dynamics, pauses, and inflections. Close your eyes, imagine the people, sounds and colors. Imagine these things and begin to paint pictures in your head. Close your eyes and imagine the moment…envision what God is doing with you. God never arrives because of us. God arrives in spite of us.  —Otis Moss III, Blue Not Preaching in a Post-Soul World

Prayer
We praise you, O God, for arriving in our midst with the dynamic inflection of your spirit. Breathe into us, your presence with every deep breath, and paint a vision of your love in our midst. Amen.
