The Black Church has been critical in shaping the culture. We have heard stories of people saying how they were whooped by their mothers or grandmothers when they were young for not wanting to go to church. It is a rather serious and pivotal institution and this is where most people have been shaped into the strong people they are today. The preacher and his/her family are always revered and seen as “holy”. This is however not the case in most cases. In Greenleaf for instance, more light is shed on the lives of the preacher and his family and this shows that they go through things that most people go through. Hypocrisy is however portrayed by these characters. We see how Greenleaf does not do anything when his daughter is raped by one of his friends. Their outward appearance misleads the people and this gt me thinking really hard. Does the black church lie to its congregation? Are they not as real as they seem to be saying? Do they not practice what they preach? Why is it that most preachers’ children are drunkards and drug addicts? Why do they have children out of wedlock? Why don’t they have a good relationship with their children? But again aren’t they not humans? I think we are being too hard on the preachers’ families and we should go slow on them. Grace is the true representation and I think we can all resonate with her and sometimes, outsiders get us more than insiders do just like Grace’s aunt does.
