                                        How to be less White                            White Fragility Book Review  I used to love reading books, but in the last several years I have not read that much. So my goal for 2021 is to read one book a month. For the month of March the book I chose was White Fragility by Robin Diangelo that I bought at my local Target.     The reason I chose this was because It was on the New York's best sellers list and I wanted to see what people were consuming lately with the high race tensions in America. This book is geared towards White liberals. I am not a woke liberal in fact quite the opposite. So me going into reading this,  I am coming in with a critical mindset from the beginning.        I am coming with the perspective of a Conservative Christian.  The book had some good insights. Very few, but I am a learner and can learn from almost anything or any situation. I agree that there is Systemic Racism. I agree that it is embedded into society.

Imagine Poem (Christian Version of John Lennon's Imagine)

I created this poem in response to the world singing the song Imagine by John Lennon ..Here is my Version
Imagine

Imagine there is no heaven?
What if you imagined there was one?
A place where you would reunite with 
loved ones
instead of blackness after death
Imagine there is a heaven
It's easy if you try
Imagine instead of people living for the day
People lived for eternity
Loving one another, in true fellowship?
Imagine a world with Christ reigning and defeating all sorrow and death
A banner with his name and everyone as one worshiping Jesus?
On this mountain, there is no more war, no more strife, no more cancer, no more tears

Imagine all the People living in peace
Where the wolf will live with the lamb,the leopard will lie with the goat, and the calf and lion together, and a little child leading them
Imagine a world with no religion
all idols broken down, but people having relationship instead of religion with him...
Who is, Who always was and Who is still to come
Imagine a brotherhood of man
A great multitude that no one can count,from every nation,from all tribes and nations and languages standing before the throne and before the lamb, clothed in White robes with palm branches in their hands

Imagine a world with streets of gold, a bright city, a city on a hill, dazzling with clear crystal
Where the Lion of Judah will roar in triumph!
Imagine a world where there is a heaven instead of utter darkness
Imagine there is a heaven!
We will dance in the streets of Gold, holding hands with our loved ones for all eternity
It's time to stop imagining and start Believing!



Here is a list of more fitting uplifting songs that are more appropriate then Johh Lennon's imagine.
