After overcoming nearly impossible odds—growing up poverty-stricken and hopeless, being trapped in an all-Black ghetto in South Central Los Angeles, Ealy became an ordained Baptist minister. Over the past 38 years, he has held major positions of leadership in the secular and church worlds. Those positions included appointments as diverse as the Naval Materiel Command and the Federal Railway Administration in Washington, D. C. to his most recent service as an educational consultant for a large state education department. Currently, Ealy serves as a consultant for various churches. And, he is the founder of The Institute for Living, an organization whose mission is to assist individuals in their spiritual growth. Tagged by Columbia University as one of its “amazing” graduates, Ealy uses “calm and compassionate prose to suggest that churches may be looking at things the wrong way”, according to BookSurge Publishing Company. BookSurge says further that “Ealy explores his life – laced with scripture texts and revelation – to create an inspirational book. It would be a gift for anyone wanting to bolster belief and find greater inner peace.” Novelist, journalist, actor and comedian Wyatt O’Brien says, “The author has strong words on the role of the church in people’s lives. Ealy says, “My passion is simply to bring hope to suffering people. When all the old prayer liturgies don’t work, the God of II Kings 20:5 simply says, ‘I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears.’ ” Please visit our web site at www.theinstituteforliving.com

Re: “The resurrection of Pastor Ted

Ted, I admire your courage in standing up and telling your story. This topic is a difficult one, that the church has an especially awkward way of dealing with. It is so complex in its many strands and facets, that the apparent obvious answers are not sufficient.

It is easy to erect the "boxes" as you suggested Oprah wanted to place you in -- heterosexual vs. homosexual, but then what do we do with Caster Semenya, who apparently has both male and female genitalia? When we study the whole issue of sexuality, we learn that it is just not a simple black/white issue, that lends itself to "boxes." In addition to the biological variables, our early childhood experiences -- such as your own -- can make imprints on our adult behavior.

Rather than judging and criticizing each other for our adult sexual behavior (or worse: hating and killing each other), we are called to love one another. Only God can judge us, and only God can bring healing where healing is needed.

In the hands of the Potter, the broken vessel can be made whole.
