I knew TJ in high school. At the time two things I noticed about him. He loved Jesus and people. Through Face book I have been able to reconnect after not seeing him for years. It is good to see this has not changed with him and that he is pursuing learning more about Jesus and helping others.

As a friend and former classmate at New York Theological Seminary, I can say that TJ is a committed and tireless voice for social justice in whatever situation and location he finds himself. TJ has the heart of a prophet, speaking truth to power, with an undeniable and prophetic vision for a world of compassion and inclusion. May God bless you, TJ, as you seek to follow in the footsteps of Christ.
The notion of politics and religion being seperate is logical. But Jesus and justice always go hand in hand. It is important that preachers and prophets become sxcholarly equipped to spread the radically inclusive message of social justice. --Reverend Gwen Thomas, Coordinator of the African American Roundtable at Pacific School of Religion
Speaking truth to power, the thought the realizationof speaking truth to power, powers through when I read your spirit in word form. injustice, oppression, human rights violations go unchecked, ignored and explained away, but not by you. Your spirit, your words, you give me hope and joy. Go forward.
