Rev Willie Taplin Barrow Homecoming is a Spiritual Passing of the Torch to all ages!

While at PUSH, the Rev Barrow was honored by dignitaries and the common man and woman with accolades and fond memories. I too have many memories and looked up to her as a mentor. Especially touched by visions from Bobbie Steele's tribute to Rev Barrow calling our warriors i.e., Fannie Lou Hammer, Dorothy Heights, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Shirley Chisolm and others in the Civil Rights Movement to gather around the throne of Jesus and called on Mahalia to do...

While at PUSH, the Rev Barrow was honored by dignitaries and the common man and woman with accolades and fond memories. I too have many memories and looked up to her as a mentor. Especially touched by visions from Bobbie Steele's tribute to Rev Barrow calling our warriors i.e., Fannie Lou Hammer, Dorothy Heights, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt, Shirley Chisolm and others in the Civil Rights Movement to gather around the throne of Jesus and called on Mahalia to do a special song! Bet Jesus is saying to her "Job Well Done!" If only I will be that honored to hear those words from my lord and savior!

At Vernon Church of God a spiritual passing of the torch to all our people was at hand during her service at the Church. This moving tribute to take up the mantle where she left off is a wake up call to all of us!. We must not forget this passionate soul and we must embrace her legacy! As she says "We are not so much divided as we are disconnected" Our people can connect if we can learn to forgive each other our slights, our jealousies, our pettiness and embrace a bigger picture for the salvation of our race as a people.

Believe this is how the little warrior Rev. Willie Taplin Barrow wants us as a people to do for ourselves so we may become self reliant and build a new foundation of hope for our youth. You don't have to be the leader to do just one thing to help your people. She took the risk. Will you?
