Miss Robin Kirk, A 2019 Breast Cancer Survivor!
Breast Cancer Death Rates Continue to Drop But Cases are on The Rise

One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. The American Cancer Society found deaths for women from breast cancer continued to decline but at a slower rate than previous years. More than 3.8 million women living in the U.S. have a history of breast cancer. CBS News medical contributor, Dr. David Agus, is a leading cancer specialist. He joins us "CBS This Morning" to sort out what the numbers mean.

A Golden Nugget

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”

― Martin Luther King Jr.

Died: Cain Hope Felder, Scholar Who Lifted Up the Black People in the Bible

His pioneering work showed Scripture is full of racial diversity.

Daniel Silliman October 02, 2019

Cain Hope Felder, a groundbreaking Bible scholar who called attention to the presence of Black people in the Old and New Testaments, has died at the age of 76.

Part of the first wave of black Bible professors in the US, Felder’s research challenged generations of scholarship that ignored or downplayed race in Scripture.

By showcasing the numerous people with dark skin mentioned in the Bible, the longtime Howard University School of Divinity professor argued that white interpreters had erased black people from the text. That erasure, he said, enabled modern, racist readings of the Scripture.

“Black people are not only frequently mentioned,” He wrote, “but are also mentioned in ways that are favorable in terms of acknowledging their actual and potential role in the salvation history of Israel.”

Based on his textual and linguistic analysis, as well as his research into the cultures of the ancient Near East, Felder concluded that Moses’s wife Zipporah was black; there were black people in King David’s army in 2 Samuel; and Ebed-Melek, the royal official who saved the prophet Jeremiah’s life in Jeremiah 38, was also black. Felder said it was possible the prophet Zephaniah was black too.
