Bean Pie, My Brother?

That's what you're likely to be asked by a clean cut, bow-tie-wearing African American man in the intersection of some major city. That, or you're asked to buy a copy of "The Final Call," the official newspaper of the Nation of Islam.

But there's a young brother rockin' bowties for Christ, and bringing much needed leadership to both reform in the African American church and to the desperately needed discussions of unity in the body of Christ. That brother is Eric Redmond, pastor of Hillcrest Baptist Church in Temple Hills, MD, 2nd VP of the SBC, and author of the forthcoming, Where Are the Brothers.

Eric and Hillcrest Baptist Church were featured in a recent Washington Post article. Check it out and be encouraged. You can check out Eric's blog, A Man from Issachar, and visit the Hillcrest website to learn more about the congregation and hear his sermons.
