New Book

(Click on book to purchase)

On April 7, 2008 the NCAA Men’s National Basketball Championship was played between Memphis and Kansas. On that same day I boarded a plane for a business trip to Kansas City with a short layover in Memphis. I did not realize that this was a historic day as it was the 40 year anniversary of the National Day of Mourning following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King in 1968.

What began as a business trip, became a prophetic encounter.  The Lord used the basketball game and events of the present, to connect with events of the past to reveal a message to us about healing, forgiveness and a time to break free from the racial tension that has been in our land.
