“Nostalgia is a powerful tool of ignorance and retrenchment of the social order. In America, white folk have been hooked on memories that somehow made the country look better than it was, that allowed white people to remain innocent in a country that has always been confused about Black folk and committed to white folk.”
Dante Stewart, Shouting in the Fire: An American Epistle. New York: Congruent, 2021, page 182.
I am a husband, father, and grandfather. A small, town about fifteen miles west of Pittsburgh is home currently, though several other places have served that purpose before this. I maintain a YouTube channel of Bible teaching videos and a podcast of Bible teaching audio. I like to make things in my woodshop. I like taking photographs and use a lot of them in my blog posts. I go fishing in the local streams and lakes when I can. For thirty-nine years, I served as a pastor of churches in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and New York.
