UBUNTU: A Spoked Wheel

By Rev. Corey L. Brown, MDiv

What is UBUNTU? Let’s look at a bicycle wheel. The hub represents interfaith, ecumenical, intergenerational, affirming, and accepting unconditional love for ALL of humanity. The spokes represent all the intersections the hub shares with its community. The strength of the wheel relies on the hub and the spokes connecting the hub to the rim. After much thought and prayer, I have decided that G-d’s calling on my life is to help the Black Church get back to the basics of being the center of its community. It will look like the old church, it will have the principles of unity, love, giving, teaching, and preaching as part of its foundational principles. Blessings and peace be upon you all.

  1. Interesting concept. Easily understood. Getting back to the “old way” of church (with some updating to encourage younger people) is needed for the reasons stated.
