I guess we can lovingly co-exist in this beautiful tapesrty without trying to change each other's beliefs. I actually go to an Anglican church and sing in the choir. I hooked up through a voice teacher and he said to me, 'would you object to going to chirch? Cause I got this choir I sing for, and man..." And I thought about it and said no I'm Rasta so I am Christian too.
I love these beautiful (mostly older) people-one of whom Percy Hughes is the first black man inducted into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame. Prince was second! He's a jazzz reed man. And they love me dreadlock rasta ways. There's some parts of the liturgy I ain't down with and I change the eucharist prayer to "Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ IS come again!" I don't think I'm gonna burn for that one! I sing Bob songs in other churches around here too.
I've talked to many Christians who have as hard a time with Paul as Rastas do.
So I just think it's cool to defend your faith, but remember we're talkin about GOD here: HE does not need our defense!
ps I am a sis
