The Black Church has maintained the posture as being the spiritual voice for the people. It has been the champion and trailblazer for change since the days of slavery. Our great Leaders the late Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. and Malcom X came through the Black Church although they were not the same religion. The Black community today have even greater challenges than in the 60's. Homelessness, Disease, Drug Abuse, Epidemic Imprisonment, Youth Indecent Dressing, Black on Black Crime and the Lack of Black on Black Spending are situations which have grown much worse and continues to plague our communities.
The question is: With all of this social, health and economic work that we are facing, should more of the prosperity message convert over to the congregation rather than just the Preacher? And should Churches open their doors as relief centers since so many people need relief these days everyday? Are the Churches of today failing the people or would an Upgrade fix the problem with our Churches? What do you think... please share your opinion and/or great examples of any Church you know that have made the Upgrade already...
