There was once a very popular song that included the phrase, "I want to know what love is, I want you to show me." This phrase somehow summarizes one of our most basic human pursuits: the desire to know and experience love. There is no question that a great gulf exists between God's love and our concept or version of it. In our pursuit of love, we prioritize our erotic passions, not realizing that intimacy cannot exist in our relationships without an understanding of God's love. In the "THE TRUTH ABOUT LOVE," the author reconciles these conflicting viewpoints by shining the spotlight on the character of God's love, and by showing us how then to love each other and ourselves. Clenord's life and Christian journey is an embodiment of God's love and unmerited grace on display. While passionate about music and worship in the local church (his first love), God has also called him from the "backside of the desert" to redirect our attention from what divides us to what we all have in common: the heart language of love. His early days at Jamaica Theological Seminary, Central Christian University, and Western International University, as well as his unique life experiences, have provided the tools of reference for his book and debut worship CD, "IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY." Clenord firmly believes that our lives should be a balanced reflection of the totality of Jesus Christ: fully God and fully man. Christ, while on earth, was in an exclusive position because of His Spiritual and human DNA. It is this model of balancing the spiritual with the physical that Clenord and his wife have incorporated into their ministry. They have launched the "Love Beyond Words Foundation" so that disadvantaged students, the elderly, and victims of domestic violence can also experience God's love and compassion.
