A thread of appreciation for the late Roy Hargrove.
To be a young jazz fan in the 1990s was to choose to be an outsider. It was one thing to play in the band. But the jazz band was something different, at least it felt that way to my friends and I.
So for my friends and I, it wasn't just about playing in a jazz band, it was also about consuming jazz music while all our other friends and peers were listening to hip-hop and anything else that was popular.
Happy Sunday ya’ll!
We’ll be resuming our regular #MusicSermon services tonight, but yesterday we did a light Devotional celebrating classic Usher bops, to soothe those aggrieved by his new album. twitter.com/i/moments/1053…
Hey guys. Family calls tonight, so no #MusicSermon (I know, I said we’d get back on regular schedule.)
I got ya’ll early this week. In the meantime, catch up on the Usher classics Devotional if you missed it (see previous tweet).
We'll have this week's #MusicSermon tonight (I'll come back with appx time), but in the meantime, I finally have the Usher playlists for ya'll!
Happy Sunday, fam. There will probably be a sermon on tonight (but it may be tomorrow. I’m waiting for the spirit to hit). In the meantime, we finished counting down your Top 11 favorite #MusicSermons from our first year. Catch up with them here: twitter.com/i/moments/1036…
And ICYMI, last week we had a special #MusicSermon Devotional to give proper acknowledgement to Tevin.
Aight fam, this week’s #MusicSermon will happen manana. The spirit just isn’t moving on today.
I haven’t really moved beyond scrolling twitter and changing the tv channels from the comfort of my couch.
Aight, I just got home. I need to get settled and organized but we ARE doing a #MusicSermon tonight. I expect to open the doors of the church around 8/8:30, we’ll rock until #InsecureHBO, take an intermission to watch as a family, then finish service.

Happy Sunday, family.
I’m not ready to get started just yet (there’s alot of content. You’ll understand in a minute). I am, however, gonna break protocol and - for the first time - set the sermon up, then come back.
Happy Sunday! We will be continuing our special #MusicSermon series on The Superfriends tonight with Timbaland. Doors of the church will open around 8. In the meantime, catch up on the latest church news with this week’s bulletin!
Alight y'all, I'm getting organized and then well get started with tonight's #MusicSermon.
Ushers, you may begin seating. ⛪️
*Steps into pulpit*
Good evening, family. Sorry for the late start. For one, it's hard for me to settle into a sermon while it's still daylight. Second, I was hit with a massive bout of sleepiness out of the blue...
Happy Sunday! I know it's strange to have no #30DayMusicChallenge today, but I do have a bonus day to wrap the whole thing up. I'll post tomorrow.
HOWEVER, there IS a #MusicSermon today! And I changed some sermons around bc I think ya'll need a live one after this bs week. ⛪️
I'll open doors of the church around 8:30/sunset.
In the meantime, the #MusicSermon ministry has been *very* busy in June, and some of it got lost in the music challenge posts. Catch up w/ a special non-sermon, all-update edition of the Church Bulletin mailchi.mp/b32e49363c09/t….
Aight guys, it's cool enough for me to venture out and get some food real quick, then we'll get started with tonight's #MusicSermon.
Please prepare your hearts, minds and ears.
You may wanna get a snack, too...tonight might be kinda long. ⛪️
Ushers, you may start seating.
It's a gorgeous day, so I know a lot of ya'll probably aren't gonna be stationary until later, so we'll open the doors of the church around 8 for tonight's #MusicSermon. I'm going to pause the #30DayMusicChallenge RT's until then to give ushers time to prepare the sanctuary. ⛪️
*Steps into pulpit*
Happy Sunday, family. And Happy Father's Day to all our Dads in the congregation!
Last week, we started talking about under-appreciated families in soul music, starting with the DeBarges.
Ok, Canibus fans (all 3 of them), Ye defenders, and some of my fellow get-off-my-lawners have worn me out over the past 48 hours. Taking a break to get my spirit and energy right for the sermon.
Will aim to open the doors of the church around 5pm. Govern yourselves accordingly.
Anyway, even as I’m getting into the sacred spirit of Holy Week, there is a #MusicSermon today. The doors of the church will probably open around 7. ⛪️
I appreciate ya’ll understanding and accommodating me taking a break last Weekend. I just didn’t have the stirring. Lol but serious. There’s a mood/mindset/headspace I have to be in to keep the right evergy. I won’t ever force one; it wouldn’t feel the same even to ya’ll.
We’ll start tonight’s #MusicSermon when the game is over. 🏀⛪️
Please govern yourselves accordingly.
Also you may want to put on comfortable clothes so you can dance... just sayin’.
Ok ya'll, give me like 30 more minutes (tonight's #MusicSermon took a bit of organizing), and we'll get started with tonight's service.
If the ushers will please start seating, and the praise & worship team come...
*Steps into pulpit*
I apologize for the lateness in the hour, and ya'll might as well get prepared, saints, cause I think this is gonna be a kind of long one, but I gotta get it out how I feel it, amen?
We all know by now (I hope) that #MusicSermon is a B2K (before 2000) centered ministry. However, I promised that at some point, I would heavily relax those restrictions for a specific sermon topic, and I believe the time has come…
"Happy" was in nominated for Best Original Song for Despicable Me, but the song didn't blow up until lonnnnng after the movie. (2013)
And I was in my living room crying like a baby during John & Common's Glory performance in 2015 (partially because it was so powerful, and partially because I'm biased as sh*t... "Glory" still gets to me live).
To back up for a second, The Prince of Egypt is DreamWorks, not Disney, but the in-film vs end credit/promo version is pretty universal for animated movie themes.
Happy Sunday ya’ll! There will be a quick #MusicSermon before the #Oscars tonight. Probably 6ish, but I’ll confirm soon ⛪️.
In the meantime, check the current leaderboard for the first round of our 90s R&B #MarchMadness. Round 1 ends Tuesday @ 12ET.
We’ll get started on tonight’s #MusicSermon in a few. It’s *should* be one we can finish by the time the #Oscars start, but if not we’ll rock until 8 and I’ll finish later. Please govern yourselves accordingly. ⛪️
*Steps into pulpit without robe on*
Good evening Sermonites, Saints and Aint’s.
On the occasion of the Academy Awards, on tonight, we’re going to have a special program in place of normal service...
So it's 10:30 on a Friday night, and I'm in the crib because #washedgang (we outchea).
It's rainy, and 40 degrees, and it seems an appropriate time for a #MusicSermon devotional I've been sitting on...
One night last month some us had a brief convo about Jeep music. I started puling up songs and videos, but it led me in another direction (although there's some overlap), to a super specific era & niche of rap music...
Let's call it Bubble Coat, Leathers, Polo Boots & Timbs Music
Lemme throw the bat signal up for @metroadlib real quick. I told her I had this on deck.
