Dr. Hamlin’s Reflection for Sunday, May. 22, 2016
During my freshman year at Morehouse College, I struggled to understand God’s call upon my life. Many hours were spent praying and meditating in the Danforth Chapel on the campus of Morehouse College.
The chapel became a very important part of my time at Morehouse. During our sophomore year, Rev. Tyrone Crider and I, with the aid of a few students, started a Sunday worship service for students in the Atlanta University Center. The chapel held approximately one hundred people and it was packed every Sunday with students standing outside the chapel.
We entered the chapel one Sunday and discovered that the painting of Jesus (European) had been defaced and turned Black. The decision was made to leave the painting with Jesus in Black face. Today, Jesus is still Black face and it is probably appropriate in that Morehouse is an HBCU.
This past weekend during my 35th graduation reunion, I was blessed to visit several important places on Morehouse’s campus. I visited my dormitory room for two years (sophomore and junior) in the Benjamin E. Mays Hall. The room still looked the same.
