This week’s special edition of Washington Watch comes to you from the Worship Center of the Potter’s House, founded by Bishop T.D. Jakes. This nondenominational church has 30,000 members and hundreds of ministries. It is a major force in the community, in the nation and also all over the world. We are here today because several months ago, Bishop Jakes and I met in Washington, D.C., for lunch; and I talked about the importance of authentic manhood in the 21st century – not just in the Church, but in the home and the community – and how the future of the Black family – and, really, all families – will be predicated on strong men rising up.
During this special edition of Washington Watch we focus on fathers in Black families – what it means where they are in the lives of children and the pain that can last for years when they are not.
All that and more in this week’s edition of “Washington Watch.”
