Rev. W. Benjamin Boswell:
Churches could learn much from reflecting on a jazz band. Here are a group of people who work very hard at listening, yet give up nothing of themselves in that process, but in fact only gain a true sense of themselves in the common task of making music, producing sound that makes a central statement that exists only through the constitutive performances of each musician.
~ Willie James Jennings
We all require and want respect, man or woman, black or white. It’s our basic human right.
~ Aretha Franklin
