Happy Thanksgiving to everyone from all of us here at HarlemCondoLife Your Gateway To Harlem.  Wishing you and your family and friends a meaningful and joyous day of celebration together.

Please keep in your prayers those who are less fortunate and those who are experiencing loss of loved ones or not able to be together with their families due to their military service to our country.

LYRICS

Weeping may endure for a night
But joy comes in the morning
Trust Him

Somehow I know that there’s a place up above
With no more hurt and struggling
Free of all atrocities and suffering
Because I feel the unconditional love
From one who cares enough for me
To erase all my burdens and let me be free to

Fly like a bird, take to the sky
I need you now, Lord, carry me high
Don’t let the world break me tonight
I need the strength of You by my side
Sometimes this life can be so cold
I pray You’ll come and carry me home

Can we recover, will the world ever be
A place of peace and harmony?
With no war and with no brutality
If we loved each other we will find victory
But in this harsh reality
Sometimes I’m so despondent that I feel the need to

Fly like a bird, take to the sky
I need you now, Lord, carry me high
Don’t let the world break me tonight
I need the strength of You by my side
Sometimes this life can be so cold
I pray You’ll come and carry me home

He said, “He will never forsake you
Or leave you alone”
Trust Him

I need You right here right now, Lord
I need You right here by my side
Keep your head up to the sky
With God’s love you’ll survive

Fly like a bird, take to the sky
I need you now, Lord, carry me high
Don’t let the world break me tonight
I need the strength of You by my side
Sometimes this life can be so cold
I pray You’ll come and carry me home

Fly like a bird, take to the sky
I need you now, Lord, carry me high
Don’t let the world break me tonight
I need the strength of You by my side
Sometimes this life can be so cold
I pray You’ll come and carry me home

Carry me higher, higher, higher
Carry me higher, higher, higher
Carry me higher, higher, higher
Carry me higher, higher, higher

Carry me higher, higher, higher
Carry me higher, higher, higher
Carry me home
Carry me higher, Lord

Songwriters
Wright, James Quenton / Carey, Mariah

Phoenix_Full-Marion_Kahan

I can’t wait to go to check out this new exhibit at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine which according to their website opened on March 1st. Read on…

Over the course of two years, pioneering Chinese contemporary artist Xu Bing culled detritus from construction sites across the rapidly changing urban landscape of Beijing, and transformed it into his most monumental project to date: Phoenix (2008-10). A feat of engineering and ingenuity, Phoenix is composed of two birds, a male called Feng and a female called Huang. Feng and Huang—each weighing 12 tons and measuring 90 and 100 feet long, respectively—are now coming to the Cathedral. They will hang suspended in the Nave, two majestic birds in perpetual flight beneath its celestial ceiling.

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine could become a landmark under a deal between the church, Community Board 9 and developers of a new 14-story building set to be built alongside the cathedral.

Community Board 9 approved a resolution asking  the Landmarks Preservation Commission to landmark the entire cathedral campus with an exception for a 14-story, 428-unit apartment building.  Revenue from that project will fund church repairs, upgrades and ongoing operations.  The 121-year-old  cathedral is in need of millions of dollars in repairs and upgrades.

Previously the church leased land on 110th Street and Morningside Avenue to the developers who built Avalon Morningside Park, a 20-story luxury apartment building, in 2007 that includes 20 percent affordable housing.

The area from the church eastward towards Frederick Douglass Circle is part of what is known as “Gateway To Harlem”, which continues to undergo dramatic change, and into what some are now calling SOHA (South Harlem).

For more information: St. John the Divine Campus Could be Landmarked in Deal With CB 9 – Morningside Heights – DNAinfo.com New York.

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”

– Martin Luther King, Jr.

People say never talk about religion (or politics) because everyone has their own beliefs and opinions and it always ends in an argument.  Keeping this in mind, here are some end of the year thoughts on all religions to consider coming into the New Year, 2014:

Catholicism, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Confucianism, Buddhism, Seventh-Day Adventist, Mormonism, however you were raised or whatever religion you have chosen as a vehicle to help you on your path to a higher place, should be respected and not judged.  So much of religion has to do with location and where we were born into the world, geographically.  This is sometimes lost in the bigger picture of things and definitely complicates our political differences.

Lets try together globally in 2014 to learn more about one another around the world and accept each other for who we are as well as our differences.  There are similarities with many religions and beliefs that people would be surprised to learn about.  It is really quite interesting and empowering to learn about other cultures, traditions and languages.  More and more our society is becoming multi cultural and globally in tune.  As we continue to grow and understand we can learn that our differences are sometimes more similar than we thought.

Rest in Peace.  With hearts heavy around the world right now with the passing of Nelson Mandela.  He led a tireless, valiant and successful struggle that brought freedom to millions.

His efforts were watched and supported by millions in the United States, whose same struggle has been so well recounted in the PBS series The African Americans.

As you honour the legacy of Nelson Mandela please make time to watch this amazing series by yourself or with family and friends.    Watch one minute of one episode and you won’t be able to stop, it is so captivating.

A brief history of Nelson Mandela
