You just can’t predict this church to be on 123rd and Lenox in Harlem
Then again, when it comes to people’s loopy feelings on Obama, you can’t predict anything these days.
ATLAH World Missionary Church is led by a charming gentleman named James David Manning. I think it’s safe to say, from the church marquee, he’s not a big fan of Barry. Some other kind things he has to say:
A week or so ago, I went on one of my favorite walks in New York City, the West to East 125th Street pilgrimage. I love it, because 1) I feel like I’m in Atlanta in 1999 and 2) I’m usually looking for a pair of $3 shades.
Last week, however, I went before the hustle and bustle, at 8:30am. For the shopper in me, it was a horrible decision, because none of the vendors were out. That was okay, though, because on 125th St. between Adam Clayton Powell Jr (7th) and Frederick Douglass Blvd (8th Ave), I was greeted with the greatest treat ever.
All the gates were down on the storefronts and because it wasn’t 9am, this is what I saw:

When I got off the G train at Classon Ave, I felt like I was on my way to finally meet the girl I had been in an internet relationship with for 5 years.

Will she see me first, or will I see her?
God I hope we like each other.
