To All God’s Vessels

Messengers and Vessels

Note to all my friends in the arts, educators, community activists, church leaders, revolutionaries, and/or anyone else working as a vessel to improve the conditions of our community: “The Messenger will be Judged”.  So please, try to be the change and live your life in accordance with what you’re preaching. Otherwise, you’re more than likely wasting God’s good word on deaf ears.   The message will either be received or rejected based on how you are living. “The Messenger will be Judged”. ~ Sean King

 

The Ingredients of Change

To make change, you need a Poet’s soul, a Dancer’s passion, a Musician’s charisma, a Singer’s voice, a Visual Artist’s vision, a Soldier’s willingness, a Slave’s perseverance, an Entrepreneur’s creativity, an Intellectual’s intellect, a Leader’s integrity, a Revolutionary’s heart, a Mother’s love, a Father’s tenacity, a Grandmother’s honesty, a Grandfather’s patience, a Divine purpose, and a Jesus like willingness to make the ultimate sacrifice to save souls. — Sean King

Responsibility of an Artist

In my opinion, there are two things an artist must do. First, we must use our voice to create imagery with our words, movement, paint, and sound that give voices to the billions of people who for one reason or another are unable to articulate their story. Second, we must use our art to create a future so beautiful, that we give those souls that are barely hanging on enough hope to keep believing that as cruel as the world has been, that it’s not time to give up yet, that there is something beautiful enough in these crazy times to keep fighting for.
