Go-Local Jamaica.com - Good Things Happen, Marklands Miracle

When Shirley Harris saw her eight year old son, Markland Moulton crumpled in the middle of the street after being hit down by a speeding vehicle, her fervent prayer was "God just let him live." Well just over a month following the accident, God answered her prayer and much more.
From day one the doctors gave him a 50:50 chance of survival, and felt that even if he lived he would be brain damaged. Yet young Markland has defied the odds. Markland has progressed from a state of unconsciousness to consciousness, from being speechless to being able to talk and from being carried like a baby to being able to walk again. All within two months without surgery which doctors thought would be necessary. Read more here… http://www.golocaljamaica.com/readarticle.php?ArticleID=2274

Jamaica Star Artiste Of The Month - Buju Banton Is Free

FOR BUJU BANTON to constantly keep his inspiration going, he has to have a clear conscience. This week, he explains how important it is for him to always have a free state of mind.
"I can't walk around with hate. I can't walk around with malice. If I can't see you to get it off then I am distraught. I let you know that I am disgruntled and then that's it, because my role is making music and you can't make music with a puffed up heart. If you want to make real music from your soul it's gotta be light as a feather."

History Under Review- Riot To Rebellion

Rebellion to Riot: The Jamaican Church in Nation Building by Devon Dick, examines the leading role played by the church since 1865 in creating the new Jamaica through evangelism, education, political activism and economic empowerment.

The book also touches on issues such as the rampant violence and immorality faced by today's society and outlines the church's drive to bring about justice, peace and values throughout the island.
This book reflects the evolution of the nation and the Jamaican Church and is a good source of reference with its numerous tables and appendices. The aim is that the book will form a basis for debate on how the nation can move forward in the 21st century with the help of the church.
