“Soul ties: The thing that can make you hear an old-school slow jam and think of somebody you haven’t seen in years.
Soul ties: The thing that makes old people who’ve been together for years finish each other’s sentences.
Don’t you wish mama had told you when you were young that,
when you lie with someone, you lie not just with her body but also with her soul?
And whatever condition the other person’s soul is in, you are guaranteed
to take a piece with you—whether you want to or not.
Instead of being amazed at her booty, you should have focused on her mind.”
~ Kirk Franklin,
Musician, Singer, Songwriter, Choir Director, Author, American Music Awards (2006),
Dove Awards (16X), Grammy Awards (12X), Stellar Awards (23X) & Urban Music Awards (2009)
“God is not afraid of our inquiries. The question we must ask ourselves is whether we are we afraid of His.
If questioning exposes truth, let us question. A faith that is threatened by doctrinal inquiries and evaluation of certain tenets is no faith at all.
A faith that blindly demands belief subjugates the very inquisitive soul that God gave us.
What is more, it disqualifies itself from being a faith and more accurately falls under the category of a cult.
True faith welcomes questions; false faiths discourage and prohibit them.”
~ Samuel Rodriguez,

“People in love look into each other’s souls,
and it is that feeling that I try to capture when I sing.
I listen to the people.
That was a big reason for my life, maybe the main reason,
I’m singing because I love it when people say to me,
‘Thank you.’ I thank them. It’s a marriage.”
~ Julio Iglesias,

the compassionate acts of its members,
