You can see previous interviews on Trinity Broadcast Network where both Jan and Paul interview Pastors, Ministers, Musicians getting these learned, experienced and anointed men and women of God to break down into simple words how they overcome struggles in the hope that the testimonies will bless all watching. There were no shortage of testimonies or jokes about Jan’s Big hair. She took the jokes in stride. Some days the hair would grow bigger and other days smaller.

ACAW Media solicited an opinion from a movie goer after she had seen the movie War Room and this is what she had to say:
“The movie “War Room” opened in theaters today and it is a “Devine” intervention. I laughed. I cried. It jumps immediately into the action of the lives of a married couple. There’s something for the faithful, unfaithful, men, women young and old. The movie addresses real life issues. It had to have been based on someone’s life (mine perhaps). It transitions well and remains entertaining throughout the movie. War Room was absolutely amazing. I highly recommend it. Believers and non-believers are in for a treat.
Now we know the faith movies with good characters is possible. If people can not see themselves in the movie you know its a flop regardless of numbers. But so far War Room is a movie people can relate.
Heartache fills the air: Former News Anchor Kills WDBJ Anchor Alison Parker and Photographer Adam Ward
Heartache filled the air Wednesday as WDBJ News Anchor Alison Parker and WDBJ Photographer Adam Ward were tragically gun down by one of their own. Former WDBJ News Anchor Bryce Williams approached the pair while conducting an interview with Vicky Gardner, who was also shot in the back and is currently recovering after surgery in the hospital.
ABC News stated Williams sent a 23 page letter via fax stating his reasons for his actions. Former employers reported that Williams was difficult regarding relating to co-workers. Williams stated on his social media pages that racial slurs angered him and evoked violent outbursts which related to his being terminated from previous media news stations. In the letter to ABC News, Williams states the victim’s initials are on the bullets. Williams cited the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church Charleston shooting by Dylan Roof on 06/17/2015 killing 9 people is what tipped his psyche over the edge and prompted him to put down a deposit for the legal purchase of a gun from a Virginia gun store.
Dylan Roof is the young white male that killed several black Christians in an attempt to set off a race war. The family of the slain victims of the June 17, 2015 shooting decided to forgive Dylan Roof for his actions so the question remains why would Williams take it upon himself to act? Williams continues to write in the 23 page letter that Jehovah told him to act in violence.
This statement according the bible is incorrect in that God does not need man to act in violence. God says to be happy and rejoice. God calls for patience and understanding and to love one another. God clearly says do not pay back evil for evil. Williams and all those before him that committed acts of violence in retaliation is wrong. You can read in the New Living Translation of the bible, Romans 12:11-21 how Jesus the son of Jehovah God does not call for man to act violently rather to act in love and peace,
There were four lives altered and three lives lost on Wednesday. The way that terminations are handled needs to addressed. Conflict resolutions needs some changes. Being aware that a person has some emotional issues and violent outbursts does not mean they should be abandoned. Rather, treat the situation as if they were an alcoholic or addicted to drugs. Require those involved participate in some sort of counseling so they so can positively express their feelings and reach a solution even if termination is the solution. Pray for the souls of those lost and that the hearts of their families will be healed without violence or retaliation.
With regards to social media re-post being the cause of violence. Lets take a look at it. Social media are how we communicate in our current environment. To ban those on social media from sharing what is occurring will ultimately alter how the truth is told. It is not okay to reap joy from tragedy. To blame those who re-tweet for the actions of another is not going in the right direction. This is leading to a police state in the streets, on the internet and limits our rights to free speech.
Early this morning an odd photo posted to the LUTG RADIO Facebook page, a picture of a McDonald’s Chicken Nugget order with a fried chicken head. The photo was posted by Mauricien from the Port Louis, Maritius area overseas surrounded by the Indian Ocean if that helps anyone with directions. I asked the Mauricien which McDonald’s sold the Nuggets and am waiting a response.
So while waiting, I call the North Brook, Illinois McDonald’s Corporate office to ask a few questions and was sent to a voice mail that said send an email. So of course I sent and email and am eagerly awaiting a response. McDonald’s nuggets is favored by many Americans and I had some a few days ago. Did I get a beak scrap in my nugget? Do the employees even look at what they are serving? Do they always serve Chicken Head Nuggets, Will Mickey D’s push Chicken Head Nuggets on American to save a buck or is it a delicacy for the Port Louis, Maritius area? Probably not. Lets wait to hear what McDonald’s has to say about it.
The one common denominator of the famous to the not so famous is Mom’s. In your Mother’s eyes you are her super star. Everything you do as a kid is awesome. The love you show, being a good helper and striving to do your best. So, when you become an adult and become successful at loving all people with all your heart, your Mom sees you are perfect just like God. (be ye perfect even as your father in heaven is perfect, Matthew 5:48. This referring to loving all people.
Thank you Moms!
By now, you may you’ve seen the video of Solange Knowles, Beyoncé’s sister continue verbal conversation while entering an elevator.
The issue is Solange took the conversation from verbal to physical. Solange got in the face Jay-Z and then swung on him. Jay-Z holding out his arms to prevent her from hitting him. Solange then kicks Jay-Z in the chest. Which must people in any culture know this is beyond way out-of-bounds. The is more than a sign of no respect and sign of a drug or mental problem.
To get out of control to the point you are screaming and yelling when you are not in any physical danger states something is definitely wrong. I just got to give props to Jay-Z cause He did not hit a woman who some men would have knocked her on her butt. Beyoncé, appeared to fear for the mental state of her sister. I say this cause a sister is unique in that, when they are in danger the body stance is defensive and when they are in danger of hurting themselves the posture is more of empathetic allowing the sister to be restrained.
The hope is that whatever is going on with Solange is that she will seek and accept real help.
Arturas Morozovas filmed this footage and Berta Tilmantaite edited this film. True, this is a creative process, but it is to make the plight of the people understandable. This video humanizes the protestors and the police officers. The tragedy is that after 70 years of oppression and 22 years of freedom, history fails to teach lessons in non-violence.
Men and women should be able to speak with civility towards one another. Persons should refrain from oppression for any sake. This world, the Ukraine, requires a community of many to be effective. If all are killed the leaves will still fall, the snow will blow in like a mighty wind, the flowers bloom and grass will still grow. The seasons will not stop just cause man exits.
Surely, a nation that has received forgiveness can forgive and work together for the good of all of its citizens. The dress of darkness fell 22 years ago, while allow death, deceit and greed dress itself in the blood of the Ukrainian nation.
National University of “Kyiv-Mohyla Academy”, NAUKMA, established in 1615, located in Kiev Oblast, Ukraine, one of the oldest universities is calling for the police to uphold the oath of their position. NAUKMA states that current Presidential cabinet which they are calling a regime, is working outside of the law on the Ukraine. The University is stating that it is the President and his cohorts that are actually pouncing on the citizens of Ukraine who are defending their rights of democracy.
NAUKMA states that the country leaders and officers are guilty of fratricide, which is the killing of their brothers and sisters. The University leaders are also stating that the police officers are not protecting the stability of the country and the people protecting them against dictatorship. The Ukraine was a part of the dictatorship of the USSR, Union of Soviet Socialist Republic commonly called the Soviet Union which was disbanded in 1991. There were 15 states of the oppressive USSR, Baltic States: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania; East Central Europe: Belarus, Modova, Ukraine; Southern Caucasus: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia;
Central Asia: Kazakhstan, Krygyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan; Russia: Russia.
While the USSR was a behemoth of a nation, it cared very little for the well-being of its citizens. To listen or read its history of destruction and genocide, it’s no wonder the people are concerned that to take a breath is to ask permission. This is the same state that promoted the killing of six million plus Jews and the encampment of its citizens building walls, cutting the citizens off from the rest of the world.
Democracy is a process of discussion of varying points of view. The citizens are asking to be heard and not oppressed. The world awaits to see if the former states of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic will raise its mighty thumb and return to total oppression of its citizens. 25 lives have seeded the soil of outrage, what more will it take for greed, pride and heartlessness to be permanently vanquished from this European country? Let’s also see if text and videos will be removed. Lately, the news coverage of some media outlets is being removed. A true democracy allows for the voices of its citizens to be heard.

The following is the letter from NAUKMA
” The bloody events of February 18-19 have moved Viktor Yanukovych’s regime to a position outside of the law. Ukraine’s authorities have begun a war against their own people, who have been defending their dignity and their rights.
Therefore, we call on:
– Our compatriots – to stop the fratricide and bloodshed;
– Police authorities – not to comply with criminal orders, and to remember the oath of enlistment they made to the people of Ukraine;
– Ukrainian officers – to recall their honor and dignity and to protect the lives of their compatriots, the sovereignty of Ukraine, and to defend the Ukrainian people from the onslaught of dictatorship;
– University academic communities – to stop the study process until the bloodshed is over.”
Glory to Ukraine!
On behalf of the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy:
As the world celebrates the Olympic Gold, Silver and Bronze medals of the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, the Ukrainian citizens in Kiev are protesting against its President Viktor Yanukovych, who handles international affairs and negotiations. Protestors are stating that President Yanukovych is hindering the relations with the European Union. Reportedly, protestors are seeking impeachment of the president. The Ukraine allows for two terms at five years per term. The current President was elected in 2010 The preceding president, Viktor Yushchenko only had a 4% favorable poll rating and did not run for a second term.
There is an 8 hour difference from Chicago to the Ukraine. Its reported that there are six to nine police officers and civilians totaling 13 that have lost their lives as a result of the fires and disturbances at the protests. Police poured water on protestors and the protestors threw Molotov Cocktails. Officials are asking that women and children leave the square for their safety. Independence square is burning as the citizens vent their rage.
