DEEP RIVER AND THE NEGRO SPIRITUAL SPEAKS OF LIFE AND DEATH
By Howard Thurman

The ante-bellum Negro preacher was the greatest single factor in determining the spiritual destiny of the slave community. He it was who gave to the masses of his fellows a point of view that became for them a veritable Door of Hope. His ministry was greatly restricted as to movement, function, and opportunities of leadership, but he himself was blessed with one important insight: he was convinced that every human being was a child of God. This belief included the slave as well as the master. Thus his one message springing full grown from the mind of God repeated in man ways a wide range of variations:”You are created in God’s image. You are not slaves…you are God’s children.
He who knows this is able to transcend the vicissitudes of life, however terrifying, and look out on the world with quiet eyes. It is out of this sense of being a child of God that the genius of the religious folk songs is born.

This Sunday we welcome soloist, Jasmine Foreman. Jasmine is an 11th grade voice major at the Baltimore School for the Arts. She will sing “His Name’s So Sweet”, “This Little Light of Mine”, and “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child.”
