Every Saturday, the Ghion Cast airs the “Sabbath Epistle” which is a 30 minute segment dedicated to giving back to God as God gave to me. This is not a sermon nor am I using this occasion to preach—I’m far too sinful for me to think I can preach to others. Instead, the Sabbath Epistle, epistle means memorandum by the way, is a chance for me to share my testimony and talk about the lessons I have learned from the bible and from chance encounters with life’s blessings (people and random events) where I can apply the wisdom of the bible not in a theological sense but in a day to day practical way.

“Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you” ~ James 6:2-5
Teodrose was born in Ethiopia the same year Emperor Haile Selassie was deposed by the communist Derg junta. The great grandson five generations removed of Atse (emperor) Tewodros Kassa II, the greatest king of Ethiopia, Teodrose is clearly influenced by the history and his connection to Ethiopia. Through his experiences growing up as first generation refugee in America, Teodrose writes poignantly about the universal experiences of joys, pains and a hope for a better tomorrow that binds all of humanity.
Teodrose has written extensively about the intersection of politics, economic policies, identity, and history. He is the author of "Serendipity's Trace" and newly released "Soul to Soil", two works that inspect the ways we are dissected as a people and shows how we can overcome injustice through the inclusive vision of togetherness.
