Rev. Dr. James Edwards III

Return to hine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him. Luke 8:39 KJV It is just almost too unbelievable to think about the awesomeness of our God. He is able to encourage us. He is able to direct us. And He has truly accomplished the unbelievable in my life. In my book, “And What More Shall I Say,” God is allowing me to tell His story about His works in and through me. How then shall I attempt to accomplish this task in my time to speak? I shall employ a method of communication whereby many of our churches now shun, for they no longer provide periods of sharing one’s personal testimony during worship and/or Bible study services. Yes, no one breaks the protocol of the printed bulletin, allowing the Spirit “to move from heart to heart or breast to breast.” The preacher preaches; the deacons and deaconesses pray; the choir sings; the ushers stand at the door handing out bulletins; congregants worship Jesus “in spirit and truth,” but we seldom hear someone say, “I just want to testify about what the Lord has done for me.” In “And What More Shall I Say,” this Huntersville boy from Norfolk, Virginia feels so blessed of the Lord to have been given enough time to write even more about God and His interaction in my life. Because I am conscious of that which the Preacher, Solomon, the son of David, king of Jerusalem wrote in Ecclesiastes 3:7 there is, “a time to rend, and a time to sew, a time to keep silence and a time to speak,” I announce with great joy, this is my time. I ask that you lend me your eyes and heart and, prayerfully, my testimonies in this book shall answer the question posed in Luke 1:37, “For with God nothing shall be impossible.”

darksideGrowing up in “Olde Huntersville,” an African American segregated section of Norfolk, Virginia in the 1940’s and 1950’s resembled neighborhoods across America. Everybody knew everybody. From skin hues of light cream to dark chocolate and ages ranging from newborns to great-great grandparents; we had African American teachers, lawyers, doctors, truck drivers, ditch diggers, and domestic workers---all living next door to one another; each household respected for how strong they loved and consistently provided for their families all the while supporting their community. A skirmish might break out on a Saturday night after a game of cards and too much drink, however, a cool-headed neighbor would bring a word of peace and all was well again. It was a place where childhood friends remained friends for a lifetime. It was where students met weekly in a classroom and sang in the same church choir on Sunday. Our goal was simple ---we just had to make sure we stayed on the dark side of Norfolk.
