What is your vision for the First Poet's Church of the Latter Day Egyptian
Revisionists? I've posted my vision on the blog:
But I need to hear input from you as you will comprise the board of
The Last Poets Obiodun, Ayodele Nzinga, Marvin X, Omar Ben Hasan,
ministers and be involved in the operation of this project.
Let's get together in a few days for a meeting at my house that can serve as

Thank you all for participating Saturday. For me, it was a wonderful event and
all of you were excellent. Someone present asked about us performing at Allen

One thing I'd like you to consider as you vision: a poet's church is a ministry

a frustrated artist, so we want people to have time to be creative, then
fellowship and outreach.
Happy New Year in the Egyptian calendar!
